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.

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
