Abstract/Summary Speech-language pathology services are eminently suited to delivery via telerehabilitation owing to the audio–visual nature of the interaction between the clinician and the client. An increasing need for alternate modes of service delivery in this profession is evident because of the growing demand and cost of health care, a changing society, and rapid developments in technology. Equitable access to services, improvement in quality of care, ongoing intervention, and the promotion of self-management are several benefits to be derived from telerehabilitation. The evidence base supporting the use of telerehabilitation in speech-language pathology continues to grow, with research conducted in neurogenic communication disorders, stuttering, voice disorders, dysphagia, laryngectomy, and pediatric speech, language, and literacy disorders. A variety of technologies are now available to support a continuum of care for people with chronic communication and swallowing disorders. The future of telerehabilitation in speech-language pathology is promising, although several challenges such as clinician confidence, education and training, professional portability, reimbursement, and economic evaluation need to be addressed.
