About Our Tele-Practice Services
Clients participating in tele-practice benefit from the convenience of receiving services in their own homes, but also must make sure to create a home space with adequate privacy and minimal distraction for services.
For many clinical services, delivery via clinical videoconferencing has shown no differences in the quality and outcomes of services. For some services, modifications are required to ensure the quality and rigor of assessments and interventions. Clients of younger children may be asked to take a more active role during sessions than they are used to and all clients will likely be asked to convey forms and questionnaires over the Center's secure messaging system.
Overall, it’s a smooth process that your clinician and assigned support staff will help guide you through. Although common problems can emerge, six decades of telehealth research suggest that many perceived barriers tend to fade away or are effectively addressed with flexibility and the vast majority of individuals receiving telehealth services endorse high rates of satisfaction.
