Occupational and speech therapists and audiologists industry comprise establishments of independent health practitioners primarily engaged in planning and administering educational, recreational, and social activities designed to help patients or individuals with disabilities, regain mental functioning or to adapt to their disabilities; and diagnosing and treating speech, language, or hearing problems. These practitioners operate private or group practices in their own offices (e.g., centers, clinics) or in the facilities of others, such as hospitals or HMO medical centers.
The global occupational and speech therapists and audiologists market was valued at $58.4 billion in 2017. North America was the largest geographic region accounting for $27.9 billion or 47.8% of the global market and the USA was the largest country accounting for $23.4 billion or 40% of the global market.
Occupational and speech therapists and audiologists are increasingly using tele therapy as a solution to diagnose and treat online. Tele therapy is providing therapy through live video connection, over the internet. Speech language pathologists (SLP) provide teletherapy at reasonable costs to treat aphasia, cognition, voice, and other diagnoses. For example, a pilot program run by Kent State University in Ohio targets speech and language therapies for students in rural schools. Anyone with a phone or a computer can access healthcare professionals through 24-hour telemedicine, online diagnosis, telemedicine applications and treatment websites.
