COVID-19 UPDATE: For the health and safety of our clients, we have suspended in-person intervention at this time.

We are offering teletherapy sessions to our clients.  For more information and/or to schedule an appointment, please call:  905-302-0264

Teletherapy

The world-wide pandemic of COVID-19 has resulted in changes to our behaviours, routines, and way of life.  For many of us, our freedom to seek services like speech therapy has been put on hold.  

Or has it?  

In-person speech therapy may be on hold for now, but the continued advances in technology and connectivity have resulted in opportunities for teletherapy.  Teletherapy sessions offer audio and visual experiences which mirror in-person sessions.

Teletherapy is fun!

There are a multitude of apps and online games which our therapists use in teletherapy to keep children motivated, engaged and achieving their goals!  Teletherapy sessions offer the ability to view the child, the therapist and the interactional game all at the same time. The sessions are fast paced with activities designed to meet the child’s goals and offer immediate rewards for achievements. 

Teletherapy is easy!

You do not need to be “techy” to benefit from teletherapy.  To get started, our therapist sends you a link via email, and it is as simple as one click to start your therapy session.  You have the option of using an ipad, laptop, or desktop computer.
