What we do
Therapy Anywhere, Anytime
Helping families in remote locations access therapies online, including speech pathology, occupational therapy, psychology, dietetics and physiotherapy.
Therapy Connect are online therapy experts, delivering all of our allied health services online via video conferencing.
This means that all families, no matter how rural or remote their location, can access a high quality therapy service in real time with an experienced practitioner.
What is online therapy?
Online therapy (teletherapy) is just like face-to-face speech therapy but instead of sitting across the table from the therapist you will be viewing each other across the internet on your computer screens.
All you need is a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone and an internet connection. If you don’t have the internet or your connection is too slow, we will try to find an internet facility in your community that you can use.
How does it work?
Therapy Connect provides flexible, person-centred allied health supports via telepractice for people who experience disability or delay in development that affects their participation at home, in the community, in childcare, education or the workplace. Our services include speech and occupational therapy, psychology, dietetics and physiotherapy, all delivered online. The individuals we work with present with challenges in the areas of learning, behaviour, communication, social interaction, mobility and motor skills, performing daily tasks and nutrition.
Therapy Connect works with people across Australia and Asia who live in rural, regional and remote areas or experience difficulty accessing sufficient therapy support to meet their needs. This may be due to geographic location, large local waiting lists or a lack of local service providers. Therapy Connect links allied health clinicians to families and their support networks via telecommunications technology, such as web-based videoconferencing, an innovative approach that has proven successful in providing timely access to highly experienced allied health practitioners for people isolated from services.
Most importantly, you don’t need to be tech savvy to to participate in online therapy. All you need is a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone and an internet connection. We can help you organise this.
If you are located in a remote or rural area or cannot travel to therapy, Therapy Connect is the answer. Give us a call or send us an email so that we can give you advice about the technology required and help you to set up a trial video conference with us or just discuss your concerns. We are happy to talk before you commit to an appointment!
