What is virtual care and how will this help my child?
All services including assessments, treatment and parent-coaching can be provided through virtual care
Who can benefit from virtual-care?
Virtual services are tailored to suit the age and stage of each child.
The youngest children (under 30 months of age) will be serviced primarily through a parent-coaching and consultation model. The child may be engaged in play or an activity with the parent while I observe the interaction through the video call. I then follow-up with the parent and we collaborate on a plan based on the child’s needs.
The older child (often 3 years and up) is often interested in looking at books and engaging in fun activities on-screen. Parents are encouraged to attend these virtual sessions alongside the child .
Why virtual care?
During the Co-vid 19 pandemic, we need to keep children and families safe while still allowing access to important therapies. Virtual-care is a way to provide high-quality service to families in the comfort and safety of their own home. Virtual care allows me to provide service to any family who resides in Ontario.
