Speech Advance are now offering Teletherapy
Published 23rd April 2020
Even in tough times our client's manage to put smiles on our faces!! We pride ourselves in been professional yet feeling like extended family. In short, we care about our client's. So at the start of the COVID-19 epidemic we FaceTimed each person to make sure they were ok and we have continued to do this since lock-down.
With such a lovely response we started offering Teletherapy (therapy sessions) via Zoom or FaceTime as an alternative to face to face contact. This quickly grew and before we knew it we were running Communciation Groups and Parkinson's Groups also online. We feel that our quality is still the same and our service is still of a gold standard and professional.
We succesfully completed our first week, then second week and then third week of on-line therapy sessions. Everyone did so well, it was easier than we thought and we achieved lots of our aims.... as well as having some giggles!!
It has truly been an eye opening experience running 1;1 and group therapy via video. And like we said, has been far easier and far more successful than we ever imagined or thought possible!! Our client's are continuing to make porgress even though we're not in the same room as them.
Because of this we have agreed to open up our referrals to those who live further a field who would be appropriate for teletherapy. If you don't live close but would like to acces our speech therapy services please don't hesitate to get in contact.
