How does Teletherapy work?

Through a secure platform, an experienced speech therapist will engage with you via a two-way live video. Telehealth sessions are conducted in the same format as an in-person session. Opportunities for hands-on activities, interactive games, comprehensive evaluations, and personalised treatment plans are provided. For early intervention and some preschool age children, a parent or other adult is present to provide cueing and “hands-on” techniques or help with camera angles, if needed. 

What are the benifits of Teletherapy?

Convenient

Teletherapy offers the ultimate convenience. Parents and children can receive therapy from the comfort of their own home, which eliminates the need to pack up and travel to a clinic. It also means that families can access therapy from home without feeling the need to clean up or put on shoes.

Motivating technology

Children are naturally drawn to technology, and teletherapy is no exception. The interactive platform, games, and comprehensive evaluations provided by the therapist keep children motivated and engaged throughout the session. With teletherapy, children are given the opportunity to use technology for a productive purpose, making it an effective and engaging approach to therapy.

Accessable

Teletherapy offers access to specialised clinicians and  treatment approaches that are not available in certain areas. For instance, if you are in a rural area and do not have easy access to therapy, you can now receive therapy in the comfort of your home. Additionally, for those who require a specialized treatment approach, teletherapy can offer your child a clinician that has the right expertise and training.

Inclusive

Teletherapy offers the opportunity to be more involved in yourchild or loved ones therapy sessions. If your child is older, and independently participating in teletherapy, you will have the opportunity to meet with your therapist before or after each session. For younger children or those that require more support, you will have the opportunity to learn and apply therapy strategies during and after each session. These therapy strategies can often be integrated into your routine and practiced throughout your week.
