The study utilized a quantitative research design. Respondents were Filipino speech-language pathologists (SLPs) selected using volunteer sampling. Responses were collected through an online survey questionnaire which utilized a 4-point Likert scale. Data was analyzed using mean. Results showed that there were variations such as in environmental barriers and facilitators and client characteristics in terms of how much Filipino SLPs considered the different client selection criteria for telepractice. Although variations in healthcare practice were expected, unwanted variations may affect the equity, quality of care and effectiveness of the services. This highlights the need to reinforce and teach the guidelines of the client selection criteria stipulated in the Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) developed by the Philippine Association of Speech Pathologists (PASP) in order for the SLPs to ensure the provision of the highest quality of care and service to the clients through evidence-based practice.
