What is Tele-therapy?
Tele-Therapy is a method of delivering therapy services at a distance when transportation issues or time constraints prohibit access to center-based services. All that is needed is a computer, webcam, microphone and a high speed internet connection. Therapy is conducted outside of the clinical setting through online communication. Therapists provide one-on-one services as they would in-person, but sessions are conducted using webcams and transmitted through a secure internet connection. Therapy sessions take place in real time and are unique to each service plan based on your child’s specific needs. These offerings enable our clients to enjoy therapy services in the comfort of their own home.
Why begin here?
The use of Tele-Therapy provides access to Easter Seals DuPage & Fox Valley expert therapists specialized in the areas of speech and language, assistive technology and nutrition. The technology allows more flexibility to meet during busy schedules and is an option for families in more remote areas. Caregivers are actively involved in the therapy process and can carry over materials to practice across environments. Our experience and research shows that client, family and therapist satisfaction and outcomes emulate those of traditional face-to-face sessions.
