The use of telepractice by speech-language pathologists (S-LPs) and audiologists has increased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this presentation, we report on the results of a survey aimed at understanding S-LPs’ and Audiologists’ experiences of this shift. Survey questions focused on telehealth use, perspectives on telehealth in clinical practice, and needs going forward. S-LPs (N = 168) and Audiologists (N = 28) from nine provinces and two territories participated. The results revealed profession-specific challenges and opportunities. Discussion will focus on themes and directions for improving the implementation of telepractice.
