What is Teletherapy?
During therapy sessions, the student and therapist can see, hear, and interact with one another in real time, using webcams, headsets, and a live, synchronous online learning environment.
If you’ve ever used Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone, you’ve used a similar type of technology.
The actual therapy is the same as the therapist would deliver face-to-face, only teletherapy is done with a computer! Licensed therapists use traditional therapy techniques and activities and enhance those techniques through innovative software and tools and have the technology literally at their fingertips to plan and deliver high-quality services.
What is the Technical Setup for Teletherapy?At SPEC, our representatives walk new patients through the process, and a therapist will always be there to provide any necessary support. Technical requirements are only a computer with an Internet connection, a webcam, and an audio headset.
Since the Delivery is Online, is Privacy a Concern?The confidentiality and privacy of all patients data and secure information is protected as our system is secure and encrypted per HIPAA regulations and compliant.
Does Insurance Cover Teletherapy?Most insurance companies are currently covering teletherapy services. SPEC will run an insurance verification for your child to verify coverage and eligibility for this service.
