We have watched many families struggle to attend regular individual therapy sessions. We have likewise seen many children who do not require individual therapy sessions but would rather benefit from a few simple exercises, environmental changes and strategies that are typically easy to implement. These small changes can have a major effect on a child’s functioning and coping skills. It is easy and cost effective to provide advice regarding these changes through a single Skype consultation.
Some families find it difficult to attend therapy for one or more of the following reasons:
- Therapist appointments are located far away
- the child finds consulting rooms challenging
- the child(ren) find(s) travelling challenging
- scheduling difficulties
However, Skype consultations eliminate all of the issues listed above as well as others. More importantly, this innovative therapy delivery system provides valuable support tools for parents, families and children.
Finally, Skype consultations also allow time for parents to seek advice on home programs and equipment to use with their children. Often, parents are looking for specific information that will help them in their own home – perhaps how to set-up a child’s room or play area, use or adapt particular equipment, or a way to make homework space comfortable and conducive to successful work sessions. Skype allows CoordiConsult therapists to “visit” your home, regardless of distance. It is important to note, however, that such “home” visits are entirely up the parent’s discretion – consultations without the home component or phone consultations are likewise acceptable and effective.
How much you choose to share or the extent to which you invite our therapists into your home is completely up to you. Consultations without videos are also completely acceptable and effective.
