Where face-to-face clinic, home or school-based services are not suitable for children and their families, Ability Focus Occupational Therapy offers Telehealth appointments instead.
Telehealth is a broad term used when referring to any telecommunication technique used to conduct appointments instead of the regular face to face method. We can do this either by phone contact or through an online video format called ZOOM Cloud Meetings.
ZOOM Cloud Meetings is a secure online video platform that is similar to Skype or Facetime. We enable all additional security measures to ensure your Telehealth appointments are as secure as possible and the privacy of our families and therapists is upheld. Zoom appointments will not be recorded or stored in cloud based servers.
How does it work? We simply email you a link, that when clicked, it automatically connects you to your OT via the camera and microphone on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Our team is here to help if you require any assistance in accessing your Telehealth sessions.
