TelePractice
services

Abilities is excited to offer TelePractice services to our clients who are not able to attend onsite visits. Since

we have to temporarily close our doors and be separated from our Abilities family during the COVID-19 pandemic, Telepractice has become a very useful service to ensure continuity of care for your child. Our ability to provide long-distance care extends to the following services:

  • Speech Language Therapy

  • Occupational Therapy

  • Academic Instruction by a certified teacher

  • Academic Assistance by therapy technicians

Telepractice is a web-based approach which has been proven as an effective treatment option for both speech and occupational therapists. Some benefits of TelePractice include:

  • Provides patients with increased services where they live, work, or learn; increasing convenience.

  • Allows patients to be in different locations and be treated by a therapist with the right treatment, at the right time.

  • Sessions can be recorded for home practice allowing more parental involvement and support.

TelePractice Requirements:

  • Access to a computer with microphone and camera

  • Good internet connectivity

Abilities uses a private and secure connection that meets HIPPA security policies to ensure patient confidentiality.
