Will teletherapy be just like a therapy session on an out-patient or home health basis?
Teletherapy will only be used if determined to be at least as effective as like during in-person, face to face treatment.
If teletherapy is not deemed as effective, you will be notified and referred back to in-person treatment on an out-patient or home health basis.
This delivery model is not appropriate for every child and your child’s clinician will advise accordingly.
For certain patients, we ask that an adult facilitator be present in the room for assisting with technical difficulties or keeping a child on task during teletherapy. If a patient does not need an adult facilitator for therapy, an adult must be present or proximal at the place of service.
The adult facilitator assumes responsibility for the patient’s (child’s) safety during the teletherapy session.
