Sometimes getting to therapy is just not easy! Whether it's making it to an appointment during rush hour or the challenge of getting everyone in the car, we want to make it even easier for you to get great therapy services. We are excited to announce the launch of telehealth at Seattle Therapy Network.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth is a well established model of providing remote health care services via video! Our platform allows clients to meet with you and/or your child easily from your phone, tablet or computer!
How much are services?
Telehealth services are the same as our in-clinic rates. We will work with you and your insurance to help you get coverage for services. Most major health carriers include telehealth.
Can I benefit from telehealth?
Pediatric clinics across the country are using telehealth to address challenges with sensory processing, motor skills, self-care, feeding, articulation, communication, handwriting, executive function skills, visual motor/visual perceptual skills and so much more! Families that have limited access to services, limited transportation options, or those who prefer to receive services in their home can benefit. Studies have shown that Telehealth effectively empowers parents to support support their child in reaching their goals in their home environment.
How do I make a telehealth appointment?
Your telehealth appointment will be scheduled with our front desk staff like any other appointment. You can use our contact form to get started today!
How do log on?
You will receive appointment reminders from Fusion, our electronic medical record platform, as well from Zoom. You can join into your Zoom therapy session through your browser or by downloading the Zoom app to your smartphone or tablet.
Your family will need:
A laptop or tablet with a webcam or secure an external webcam to your computer; if using a smartphone, please ensure there is a stable way to hold the phone in place such as a phone stand, “pop-socket”, tripod, or some way of propping it securely during our session.
To login a few minutes before your session to ensure you have stable wireless connection and that Zoom works on your device.
To close all extra browser tabs on your device.
When it's time for your session, please enter the virtual waiting room and your therapist will meet you there.
What do I need to prepare?
Our friendly therapists will send you an email letting you know of any materials you may need for your visit. To help your therapist plan for your virtual session, you may choose to complete our home inventory checklist. We love using the materials you already have at home!
Other things you may need include:
A place where you and your child can be easily visible to the clinician. We will likely be moving the device around some during the session but will need a place in the room from which we can work.
For tabletop work, we recommend having a pair of headphones.
