Abstract

The study used the descriptive qualitative research design. Using, purposive sampling technique, the target population of the study will included Speech and Language Pathologists practicing in Metro Manila. AS the design of this study's data gathering ensues the method of focus group discussions (FGD), the main instrument for data gathering would be an outline of the discussion which served as the flow of discourse. After the FGD, all data collected were grouped into six categories that were set by the researchers and an inductive content analysis was done in order to highlight pertinent patterns and significant data relationships. The study concluded that in order for the Filipino people to utilize teletherapy, practice guidelines must be established first as a prerequisite in order to maintain a coherent, safe, and high-quality service for both the clinician and the patient. The results of this study also point out the need of a paradigm shift in order to fully understand the implications of teletherapy and help both the client and clinician towards the willingness and readiness to commit in this type alternative service delivery model.
