At Early Start Australia, we understand that getting to appointments in person can be difficult at times. Our therapists are trained to deliver telehealth for children and adults in a way that is responsive and flexible.
Telehealth is a convenient way to deliver effective evidence-based allied health therapy services without the need to travel. Whether you need a telehealth appointment with a speech and language pathologist, occupational therapist, physio or psychologist, telehealth for children ensures you can still receive this service over the internet (through a live video connection) or over the phone.
Telehealth services are very similar to what your child receives in a face-to-face session; it is just done using a computer or mobile device. Instead of being in the same room as the therapist, the face-to-face appointment is virtual; using digital technology (e.g. video conferencing) or over the phone.
If you’ve ever used Teams or Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone, you’ve already used a similar type of technology! A session will run for as long as a face-to-face session and you will be guided by a therapist the entire time.
ESA’s telehealth services are secure and confidential. Your child’s therapy is our number one priority and will not be any less by using telehealth.
Service delivery varies between clinics so check with your local clinic about their services.
We focus on supporting clients (and their families) to develop language, motor, cognitive, social and emotional skills, and provide therapy supports for children with developmental delay or disability, including autism spectrum disorder.
Our multi-disciplinary teams work together with you to understand your needs and develop a plan using evidence-based strategies to help you achieve your goals and aspirations.
We have clinics in every state and territory creating a strong community of allied health professionals with the collective knowledge and expertise to deliver you the best outcomes.
We are a registered NDIS provider and are here to help you on your NDIS journey.
