Our therapy customers, with the guidance of our therapy staff, have seamlessly adapted therapy sessions to suit a new way of working in the COVID-19 environment, with teletherapy services being used more frequently by therapists.
Rocky Bay Speech Pathologist, Liz Baird, has been conducting successful teletherapy sessions with her customers, with a recent session with a young customer proving a hit!
The teletherapy session worked just like regular therapy sessions and included online activities, reading shared books and our customer was even able to play online games during the session.
Many therapy goals for speech include building on social skills by understanding the thoughts and feelings of others, enhancing language skills, following instructions and narratives – all of which, and more, are still very much achievable via teletherapy.
Customers participating in teletherapy so far have been very happy with how engaging the sessions have been, and in some cases have been requesting additional activities to practice in between sessions.
During the COVID-19 response, Rocky Bay is dedicated to supporting your therapy needs. We have implemented many other new measures to ensure our customers receive safe and responsive therapy during this time. In addition to teletherapy via computer or phone, these include:
- Services outside regular opening times
- No waitlist, with therapists available now
- A range of safety measure implemented at our Hubs
