TELEHEALTH

It is important for our clients to maintain continuity of care to progress toward their treatment goals. We are offering telehealth appointments for any clients who prefer to stay at home during this time.* Therapy appointments (treatment days and times) will not be affected in the case of a telehealth transition. Telehealth is a great way to participate in your child’s treatment sessions and learn new treatment ideas! In a world of technology fatigue, we understand that choosing telehealth may be difficult, but our therapists make telehealth fun, engaging, and active through screen sharing, fun games and activities, and parent engagement.Telehealth has been a valuable mode of treatment during these uncertain times, and PMC is committed to helping your child reach their goals.
*State or insurance regulations may limit your ability to receive telehealth.  Please check with your therapist if you are interested in receiving telehealth services.

 

HOW TELEHEALTH WORKS

  • Telehealth is covered by most insurances!
  • Telehealth therapy sessions will typically last 30-45 minutes
  • 5 minutes prior, or at the start of your scheduled therapy visit, your therapist will send a video conference link via email or text
  • Our telehealth software,  Doxy , is HIPAA compliant and is accessible through an internet link, meaning that our patients do not need to download software for use!
  • Telehealth is a great resource for our patients as it provides continuity of care during these uncertain times.  Patients can continue to work on and progress towards their therapy goals.

PMC THERAPY

PMC offers a network of integrative outpatient physical, occupational, and speech therapy services to pediatric clients from newborn to 18 years of age in an interactive, neurologically-centered sensory environment.

 

 

Our physical therapists can help children reduce pain and improve or restore mobility, order durable medical equipment including specialized seating and wheelchairs, and collaborate with other medical professionals to order custom orthotics. Our therapists treat gross motor and strength deficits and assess activities such as walking, running, sitting, and balancing. Using exercise and play as treatment tools, our physical therapists tailor their treatment plan to maximize each child’s gross motor function.

 

Our Occupational therapists (OT’s) help children participate in the activities they want and need to do everyday. OT’s will evaluate children’s visual-perceptual skills, sensory skills, motor skills and coordination. Our play-based therapy interventions can treat a variety of conditions and help improve a child’s ability to perform their daily activities.

 

Speech Language Pathologists (SLP’s) assess and treat children with speech, language, communication and feeding/swallowing difficulties including articulation disorders, receptive and expressive language disorders, stuttering/fluency disorders, cognitive-communication disorders, social communication disorders, and feeding/swallowing disorders. Our play-based therapy interventions are fun and engaging, which makes learning fun for your child!
