TeleKids- Telehealth services through Inner West Paediatrics
At Inner West Paediatrics we are able to offer ongoing services either face-to-face (in clinic, school and childcare) and also offer Telehealth services via the Zoom and Coviu platforms. These services allow for skills from therapy sessions to be generalised in your home environment.
What does this look like?
In an online appointment, your therapist will send you a link to your nominated email address. By clicking on this link using either your computer, tablet or phone you and your child will be able to access your appointment.
During your appointment your therapist will provide intervention, much in the same way you currently receive in person. If your child is school aged, therapy may involve sharing of books, reading texts, tracing, drawing pictures, figures and writing. Most of our usual activities and tasks can be adapted for telehealth and you will receive a packet from your therapist with printables if required. If you do not have access to a printer please let us know as soon as possible when booking in a telehealth session.
If your child is younger, sessions will focus upon parent-based education and consultation, and you will be coached as the parent using items you own around the home to deliver therapy to your child. Programs such as More Than Words can be delivered using this platform also.
