After fighting traffic all day in major cities (Dallas, Austin, Amarillo), are you frustrated with trying to fit therapy into your day? Thinking that you could benefit from having your child receive speech therapy but worry that you’ll never fit it into your schedule? Maybe you’ve got the time in your schedule but aren’t sure that you’ll be able to connect with a therapist.
We get it!
It’s hard to trust people in general, let alone open up to a perfect stranger through a computer screen. Don’t worry, that’s a really common thought and something many of our clients share that they feared at first. Tele-therapy and online video counseling don’t have to be scary! We find that clients tend to forget all about talking into a screen within the first few minutes of trying it.
There are many benefits to doing therapy online.
Safety – let’s face it. No one saw COVID-19 coming. It has completely changed many of our lives in various ways. At Speech Therapy For All P.C. – having sessions via tele-therapy, you can at least rest assured that by not leaving the house, you limit any potential chance of exposure to you or your loved ones. With tele-therapy, our therapists can help you and your child safely, as well as give YOU the resources you need to help your child succeed.
Time Saving – worrying about making it to your appointment on time becomes a thing of the past. If the traffic on Houston’s West Loop is an issue, you can relax knowing that with the click of a button, you can start your appointment. By using telehealth, you’re saving at least an hour out of your day that you could use to do something else.
Weather – living in Texas means that our summers can be brutal! Think of how much better it would be to know that you can attend your session as scheduled without having to worry about the weather. Why not relax at home or work and attend sessions without worry?
Physical Limitations – how many appointments have you had to cancel because of family illness? That’s valuable time you’re wasting because you’re stuck at home, but how awesome would it be to be able to still attend session even if you, or your child, is sick and in bed? Virtual therapy makes that possible. Perhaps you have some physical limitations that make getting to appointments a struggle. Perhaps your child does. Online therapy is the perfect way to get better speech therapy services for you or your little ones.
Rural Locations – if you live in the middle of nowhere, finding a therapist can be next to impossible. Hell, finding anything can be a major challenge. When you live in a rural community, you expect to have to drive a distance to get anywhere. Even though you may be used to it, why not take the pressure and hassle of driving to one more appointment off your plate? Distance therapy can do that!
Transportation Issues – if you share one vehicle with the rest of your family, chances are that you don’t always have it when you need it. Or maybe trying to fight the never-ending traffic in Austin makes your head want to explode! Perhaps your car isn’t all that reliable and you worry about making it to sessions regularly. With tele-therapy, you can make positive changes and not have to rely on transportation.
Confidentiality – walking into a therapist’s office or being seen in the parking lot can cause a lot of anxiety. If you live in a small town where everyone knows everyone else, this can be a problem. You don’t want everyone knowing your business even if it’s just your children seeing a speech therapist. Perhaps you don’t want to explain to a nosey neighbor why your child is getting speech therapy. Online therapy gives you the privacy you need by using our HIPAA compliant software.
Easy to Use – attending your virtual session in Texas is super easy and you don’t have to worry about fancy technology. There’s no need to sign up for an account, download, or install anything. When you book a session with Speech Therapy For All P.C. we will send you the link to our personal secure virtual waiting room. At the time of your appointment, simply click on the link to the waiting room. That’s it! The virtual waiting room link never changes, so all you have to do is bookmark it once.
