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.

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?
