Is virtual therapy as effective as in-person sessions?
Yes, virtual therapy is equally as effective as an in-person session. The only difference is we will be delivering the same care and interaction with you and your child through your computer screen. Think of it as if you were sitting in the therapy room with the therapist and you are watching, observing and learning and taking those activities home. Remember the progress that our kids make typically is what happens in our therapy session one hour a week its really enhanced by what you do at home between the therapy sessions. Parent Coaching will be used just as we would in an in-person therapy session.
If your child is a younger child, we will be doing a lot more coaching through you, you are going to be our eyes, ears, hands we will help you complete the activities in the therapy session. We will also help you problem solve those challenges you might have at home.
During this time where it is safer for us to do the therapy sessions virtually please know the care we provide to your child is going to be the same effective care as if it were in person. We have found that the children who have completed the virtual sessions are very engaged.
If you have any questions please reach out to your therapist.
Thank you and we look forward to working with you virtually!
