Why is TherapyWorks teletherapy effective?

TherapyWorks has built a unique and extensive network of highly specialized, experienced pediatric therapists that would not otherwise be available to treat privately. How did we do this? We created a flexible job option for our therapists. With the rise of the “gig economy” in the US, we realized that bringing this work option to the pediatric therapy world would give our clients access to highly specialized therapists that would not otherwise have the opportunity to treat private clients. TherapyWorks has built a large network of therapists with a variety of backgrounds, all of whom hold a masters or doctorate degree in their field. Our extensive talent pool enables us to thoughtfully match each child with a therapist that has the right training and experience based on that child’s specific needs. The result is effective, successful therapy.

What is Teletherapy?

Teletherapy is therapy that is provided over a secure video connection. TherapyWorks provides speech, feeding, occupational and physical therapies along with social work via telehealth.  Research tells us that teletherapy is highly effective and feels very much the same as in-person sessions. TherapyWorks therapists are experienced and creative; making each session unique and fun for you child. We would be so happy to have a conversation about your child and how sessions would look for their specific personality and therapy goals.  Complete our get started form or schedule a free phone consultation!

What are the Benefits of Teletherapy?

Convenience! You don’t have to leave your home, you don’t have to feel like you need to clean up for a clinician to visit your home, and you don’t even have to put on shoes if you that’s not your thing.

Kids love technology. Yes, there are opposite opinions regarding technology with children as a whole, but sometimes it needs to be embraced. Today’s children just don’t know a time without screens – and that’s OK. Most children love online video interaction and are highly motivated by it.

Comfort Level:  Children can feel more comfortable on screen versus having a therapist in their home. 

Access to providers you typically wouldn’t have access to otherwise.  If you need a specialized treatment approach that few are qualified in, teletherapy can connect you with that special clinician. The options provided to clients has grown tremendously with the introduction of teletherapy.

Built in social distancing. With our recent worldwide health concerns, teletherapy has become a popular and highly successful service delivery model that keeps everyone safe! 

Research has continually proven that teletherapy is as effective as in-person therapy. TherapyWorks families have reported teletherapy to be preferable to in-person sessions. Teletherapy feels very much the same as an in-person session. Through screen sharing, our therapists are easily able to present materials to their clients that they used in person. Our standardized digital assessments assist us in determining each child’s unique needs and creating measurable and trackable goals.

Is my Child Too Young for Teletherapy?

Our experienced team of pediatric speech, occupational, physical therapists and social workers have had great success treating children of all ages via teletherapy. Sessions can be adapted to account for movement and specific treatment methods. For our youngest clients, parents or caregivers are coached on specific treatment methods; enabling a unique collaboration opportunity. Strategies and skills that are directly taught through teletherapy are easily incorporated and practiced at home. If you would like to discuss your child’s specific needs, to determine if teletherapy is an option, please reach out. We’re happy to work with you to determine whether this treatment method would work well for your child.

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
