Our interactive telehealth services are HIPPA compliant and involve hands on activities at home, school, and in the community. We collaborate with families, educators and physicians to support our patients.
Our skilled and highly creative occupational therapists reach out via telehealth to support patients and their families. We teach adaptive ways to become self sufficient, employable, and engaged at home, in school, and out in the community. Our therapy sessions often occur on the go, wherever Wi-Fi is available.
Occupational therapy typically begins with an understanding of present concerns and past experiences. We conduct thorough evaluations which include reviews of medical documentation and school reports. We also learn about patients through survey questions, standardized assessments, structured interviews, and clinical observations. All of this information is used to determine if further services are necessary and if so what the goals of treatment should be. Telehealth services with Online OTs are highly interactive and occur in the settings most relevant to the patient. This means that young children may be on the floor building block towers or constructing puzzles. Older children may be engaging in crafts at a table or learning letter formation, teens and adults may spend their therapy time in the kitchen making a snack or learning how to access adaptive technology. An important part of therapy involves family support and sharing of community resources.
