Why choose Teletherapy for Speech Therapy and Social Work Therapy?

It’s convenient; your therapy session takes place in a quiet, private setting of your choosing, as long as you have access to a computer or mobile device and an internet connection

It is a great alternative if you are concerned about missing appointments due to busy schedules, traveling, being housebound, or bad weather

It’s provided during the same day/time slot as the in-person session so your child can stick to his/her consistent treatment plan

It’s still the same high quality therapy you’ve been receiving

It is at no extra cost to you

How Does Teletherapy Work?

Teletherapy sessions are scheduled in advance just like clinic visits. When appointments are scheduled your therapist will send you a secure link for your scheduled sessions.  When you click on the link the family is connected with the therapist within seconds in a videoconference.

It’s a therapy session done online through your phone, tablet or computer — any device with an internet connection; our therapist will connect with you and your child via your choice of platform on your designated day/time

Appointments are the same length as your in-person sessions and are scheduled in the same way

You and your child choose a quiet, private spot free of distraction, interruptions and background noise and connect with your therapist via a safe, secure online platform

Our teletherapy platform protects your privacy — we are vigilant about security and provide a HIPAA compliant platform for our teletherapy services.
