In the US, some children are eligible to receive speech therapy services, including assessment and lessons through the public school system . If not, private therapy is readily available through personal lessons with a qualified Speech-Language Pathologist or the growing field of telepractice.  Teleconferencing tools such as Skype are being used more commonly as a means to access remote locations in private therapy practice, such as in the geographically diverse south island of New Zealand.  More at-home or combination treatments have become readily available to address specific types of articulation disorders. The use of mobile applications in speech therapy is also growing as an avenue to bring treatment into the home.
