Tele-health visits also can take place outside of normal business hours, so kids don’t have to miss school or other important activities.
It can help some people feel more comfortable when the sessions are conducted from the comfort of your home, which makes it easier to open up and talk. In addition, younger generations have grown up with technology and typically feel comfortable using devices. Lastly, it allows for a team approach which enables multiple family members, teachers and other providers to be involved directly in a child’s care.
When conducting tele-health therapy for children, it is important for our therapist to ensure that the child is comfortable with the technology and feels safe and secure during the session. Depending on the age and developmental stage of the child, the therapist may need to use creative and interactive techniques to keep the child engaged and interested in the therapy process.
Our therapists may also need to work closely with parents or caregivers to ensure that the child is receiving the necessary support and resources outside of therapy sessions. This may include providing guidance on how to create a supportive and therapeutic environment at home, as well as collaborating with other healthcare providers or educators who are involved in the child's care.
It is important to note that tele-health therapy for kids may not be appropriate for all children, particularly those who require in-person therapy for certain conditions or those who have difficulty connecting with their therapist via technology.
Our therapists will determine if tele-health therapy is an appropriate option for your individual needs and circumstances.
