How Is Telehealth Beneficial?
Telehealth offers innovative and convenient solutions to ensure children receive the support they need, no matter where they are. Services that can be provided via telehealth include individual therapy sessions, parent coaching and multidisciplinary care team meetings.
Through video conferencing, we establish a safe and engaging space for your child to access therapy remotely. Our telehealth sessions are conducted on secure, HIPAA-compliant platforms ensuring that all interactions are confidential and protected.
Advantages of Telehealth therapy:
Increased opportunities for your child to practise skills in between sessions, as therapy is delivered using familiar resources and toys in your own environment
Parents are coached on various areas such as understanding behavior, reading & responding to your child’s signs of stress, co-regulation techniques and strength based parenting.
Parents are involved in the monitoring of home programs, progress and developing structure & routines.
A safe space for families who need to touch base with their practitioner for strategies when it’s not appropriate to talk in front of the child
Preparation for Telehealth therapy:
If you would like a telehealth video session, you will be sent an invitation to your child’s appointment via email.
Set yourself up with a laptop or ipad in a quiet space away from the distractions of family activity.
Work in a space without bright light or sunlight behind you- as this will create a glare in your video image.
Sit with your child and participate in the session together. Coaching and encouraging them as well as having fun!
