About 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!

Benefits of Teletherapy

In addition to effective therapy, TherapyWorks families are reporting several benefits of teletherapy. First, the ease of scheduling, and convenience of staying at home has been ideal for parents. Finding a time slot that works well for therapy is much easier when there is no commute involved. 

Another benefit of teletherapy is the increased access to highly specialized pediatric therapists. When a family comes to us with a specific need or concern, we are able to connect them with a therapist that is highly specialized in their child’s area of need. Many of our therapists have additional training and specializations. When treating via teletherapy, they are able to connect with families that are in need of their specific expertise. 

Given the pandemic, teletherapy has proven to be an incredible option for continued services for our children, while keeping everyone safe and healthy. In addition, most families now have more experience connecting virtually; making it easy to set up teletherapy without technological challenges. Less frequent cancellations due to illness have increased the consistency of service; enabling positive treatment outcomes.

The TherapyWorks team is highly creative when it comes to creating a virtual session that is interactive. Many of our therapists use green screen technology and other platforms to ensure that children of all ages are engaged and benefitting fully from each therapy session. 

Teletherapy for Children of All Ages

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.

Get started by answering a few questions and a member of our team will follow up with you.

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!
