Abstract

The study used the descriptive qualitative design. The participants were speech and language pathologists practicing in Metro Manila selected using purposive sampling technique. Data was collected through focus group discussions (FGD) using an outline of the discussion, which served as the flow of discourse. Data collected was grouped into six (6) categories and inductive content analysis was performed to highlight the 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. There is a need for 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 of alternative service delivery model.
