The use of telecommunication technologies for providing clinical services in speech-language pathology via telepractice has been in place for decades (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, 2005c). However, the sophistication of the technology used to successfully implement telepractice models of clinical service delivery continues to evolve and improve over time. This article reviews new and emerging technologies that promise change for speech-language pathologists in the area of telepractice. Current research and development for both near and far emerging technologies will be discussed, including potential future clinical applications and links to online technology demonstrations.
