Communication Disorders Quarterly Volume 30, Number 3, ISSN 1525-7401


The purpose of this article is to describe the technologies and applications of digital videoconferencing (DVC) within the realm of communication sciences and disorders. The discussion includes (a) a brief description of videoconferencing, (b) an explanation of the types of DVC available along with the advantages and disadvantages of each, (c) applications of DVC in preservice and in-service settings, and (d) a discussion of potential applications in research venues. DVC can occur at varying levels, requiring differing technologies, support, and funding. Educators, practitioners, and researchers in communication sciences and disorders are encouraged to consider the application of DVC in the training and supervision of future professionals, in provision of services through telepractice, and in consultation models and in research endeavors.
