Our pediatric therapists are now offering virtual “telehealth” visits for children with speech, occupational and physical therapy needs. Whether your child has an IEP that is not being fulfilled sufficiently through school, an existing treatment plan, or even if you’ve never tried therapy for your child before…we’re here to help. A telehealth (or virtual visit) is basically the same as an office visit, but instead of seeing us at our clinic, you’ll connect through live video with your therapist on your computer or phone.

Learn more about telehealth
Are telehealth visits covered by insurance?
- Yes, just like in-office visits, most insurance plans cover telehealth, including Medicaid. Give us a call and we’ll help you figure out your insurance benefits. We also have self-pay options for families without insurance coverage.
Do I need a referral?
- Yes, a referral or prescription is needed; however, we can help coordinate with your child’s primary doctor. Note: some states don’t require referrals for self-pay visits.
How can we do the visit without equipment?
- That’s easy. We have a list of standard household items that we can use for your child’s therapy. If you don’t have specific items on the list, we can adapt to what you have available. The good news is that there is a lot of progress we can make with very minimal equipment.
My child doesn’t pay attention well to screens, how will that work?
- That’s a common concern. Let’s try one visit to see if we can overcome that obstacle with engaging, fun activities. Even if it ends up being a shortened session, we’ll provide you with ways that you can help your child make progress throughout the day when their attention levels are higher.
I’m not great with computers, is it complicated to set up?
- Not at all. We can complete the visit through your computer or through an app on your phone. We’ll personally walk you through the set up before the visit to make sure the technology is ready to go.
Our school is offering a telehealth option through the IEP program, how is this different?
- That may be a great solution for your child’s very basic needs; however, our visits are much more involved and personalized to help your child make progress quickly.
