  5. 5. ASHA’s Definition of Telepractice: In ASHA's recent position statements, telepractice is defined as &quot;the application of telecommunications technology to delivery of professional services at a distance by linking clinician to client, or clinician to clinician, for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation.&quot; ASHA's position is that &quot;telepractice is an appropriate model of service delivery for the professions of speech-language pathology [and audiology]. Telepractice may be used to overcome barriers of access to services caused by distance, unavailability of specialists and/or subspecialists, and impaired mobility.&quot; Telepractice offers &quot;the potential to extend clinical services to remote, rural, and underserved populations, and to culturally and linguistically diverse populations.” http://www.asha.org/about/leadership-projects/archive/focused-initiatives/01-03-archive/telepractice.htm
