Telehealth support for your family when you need it

At Therapy Pro, we believe that having a team of support around your child can make a real difference in your family’s life. Telehealth provides a convenient way for your family to access skilled therapists that can support the development of your child, and your family, so they can grow, learn and thrive.

Therapy Pro for Kids
A team around your family

Young children aged 0 to 7 develop differently and sometimes, a child may need a little help to find their feet. Put the right support in place and everyone benefits, because disability or developmental delays affect the whole family.

Our paediatric therapists at Therapy Pro for Kids work together to assess and deliver individualised therapy for your child and can provide as much or as little support as your family needs. Our services are designed to be responsive to your child’s needs, ensuring you always have the right people around you, at the right time.

Telehealth

All about
telehealth

Telehealth is when a family and a therapist use technology such as a computer or phone to have a therapy session. You can use NDIS funds for telehealth sessions. Telehealth allows you to access therapy when it suits you, reducing time spent juggling multiple appointments and travelling in the car. Therapy Pro therapists use evidence-based techniques and a creative approach to get real results from telehealth and online therapy Australia-wide.

Telehealth

Why people use
telehealth

Telehealth provides a different experience to face-to-face therapy; children enjoy the interactive nature of the sessions run by qualified and skilled early intervention practitioners. The parent or carer is directly involved with the online session – sitting and participating with the child – and this quickly builds skills that can be practiced and continued in between therapy sessions, supporting the ongoing development of your child when the therapist is not there.

Telehealth

Designated therapist to support you

A team of therapists will support your family based on your needs, priorities, and preferences to provide individualised, wrap-around support.

Your family will have one designated therapist, sometimes referred to as a Key Worker in the NDIS, who is your main contact and is here to support you at every step. Your Therapy Pro Key Worker or designated therapist is highly skilled and brings the knowledge and skills of the whole Therapy Pro team to your family. They will support you to plan your goals and coordinated the right team to help your family progress.

Your child’s goals or needs for therapy are set based on your family’s values and priorities; you know your child best and are central to the team when it comes to planning intervention for your child.

We support you to identify the strengths of your child and set goals that are most important to you as a family – this may be going for a family bike ride, visiting the beach for holidays, or eating dinner together.

Therapy Pro’s Early Childhood Early Intervention multidisciplinary team includes occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, physiotherapists, social workers and psychologists.

The team that supports your family is likely to change over time as your family builds capacity but there is one constant and that is you – the family – and Therapy Pro’s approach sets out to give you as much support as you need to thrive.

How your telehealth sessions work

We are mindful that you may come to us after having been through an emotional and exhausting process of discussing the concerns you have about your child’s development with multiple stakeholders. Our aim, now, is to make therapy easy for you and use many informal ways to get to know your child and their ability.

In your first session, we use a family plan document, to provide space for you to discuss your wants, needs, strengths and priorities in a conversational and friendly way.

We build your family plan through an assessment process. We don’t just want to find out ‘how delayed’ your child is or what they can and can’t do; the true purpose of our assessment is to find out what the child likes to do, what makes them laugh, what is motivating for them and also, things that might frighten them, make them anxious or avoidant of a task. We invite you to share moments of joy and reflect on your relationship with your child, and what you wish you could improve.

 

We will encourage you to think about goals that aren’t necessarily part of your NDIS plan; we would like to know about the activities you would like to do more of but need some support to do, like for example, how we can provide tools to your extended family, so they can support your child and play a greater role in their lives.

 

Over your next therapy sessions, we will introduce you to our ‘family coaching’ model. This model supports you to be active and hands-on in therapy sessions with your child and recognise how to implement the strategies during natural learning opportunities – throughout the week at home and while you are out and about – as we know this is what drives your child’s ongoing development and participation in everyday activities.

Most of all we strive to be a support team who can provide you with clarity on how best to help your child and indeed your family. After all, it’s not just your child that needs support right now.

Wrap around team grows with you

Our highly-skilled therapists are flexible in how therapy services are delivered – we are transdisciplinary in our knowledge, inter-professional in our support and fluid in how we work with you. The team that wraps around your child will include carefully selected therapists with the right individual skills, knowledge and experience to suit your situation and goals.

This approach promotes an integrated service delivery model where individuals from different backgrounds, including you as the family, are all contributing to the planning process.

Our therapists strive to establish a fun, playful and respectful relationship with your child and family. We have a genuine investment in seeing your child grow, learn and thrive.

Our therapists are trained to deliver support to you over telehealth and get real results. As a team, we enjoy the contribution we can make to building stronger, more inclusive communities.
