Occupational Therapy Telehealth (Online Therapy)

Due to increasing concerns about the spread of Coronavirus, Dogwood Therapy will only be providing occupational therapy services (and dog training) online until further notice. This means that we will be seeing clients through a variety of internet platforms that are available to the general community.

 

  •   Are you having difficulty participating in functional activities that are meaningful to you?

  •  Do you need support for a disability due to birth, illness, injury or disorder?

  •  Are you looking for ONLINE evaluation and treatment for physical, cognitive or psychiatric outcomes?

Telehealth allows the facilitation of medical necessity or participatory approach occupational therapy services via live video conferencing. If you have a smart phone, tablet or computer with a camera, audio and internet, it is possible to participate in Telehealth with an occupational therapy professional!  We can remotely (online) evaluate your needs and offer strategies to make progress towards your goals. Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial during the pandemic so we can maintain physical distance and increase our odds of keeping ourselves, families and community safe and healthy.  

  • The benefits of Telehealth are supported by research. Research has found that video therapy is as effective as in-person therapy. 

  • Most major insurance companies cover Telehealth. If you’re interested in pursuing this option, let me know and we can investigate whether you’re eligible for coverage.
