Telehealth

Telehealth Occupational, Speech and Psychology Therapy Services in Italy

 

Joy Center now offers Virtual Teletherapy Sessions via a Telehealth program for children, teens, and families to ensure continuity of care for our current clientele in addition to servicing new families. If you currently see a therapist for in-person visits, they have already contacted you about temporarily transitioning your therapy to remote sessions. If you are new to Joy Center, welcome! Our common practice is to start with an in-person evaluation and a couple of sessions to get to know you and your child. During COVID-19, we are onboarding new families via teleconferencing with the goal to meet you in person when we are able to do so. Teletherapy uses a secure, HIPAA-approved video teleconferencing service. This has proven an effective method of therapy and helps maintain progress in reaching your families’ therapy goals.

Telehealth also increases therapy access to families serving at remote military bases throughout Italy. Additionally, teletherapy allows us to extend our therapeutic relationship with military families beyond their current assignment in Italy, resulting in less disruption in their care and growth. 

 

Benefits of Telehealth Therapy

• Therapy sessions can take place in a room of your choosing, as long as you have access to a computer or mobile device and an internet connection. Our recommendation is a quiet place, free from distractions whenever possible. Joy Center will provide a HIPPA compliant platform (Cisco Webex or Zoom) for our services. 

• Teletherapy offers the same high-quality therapy you’ve been receiving

• Telehealth therapy is a convenient solution during pandemics and global health crises but is also a great option for bad weather days, hectic schedules, vacation time, and more.

 

Payment Options

Options for Teletherapy Include:

 

 

Individual Therapy

Our clinicians instruct via a shared video and continue with the treatment goals and continued assessments. Joy Center’s psychologists, speech and language therapists, and pediatric occupational therapists work with parents on the environment set up, home program activities, and printed materials. Additionally, our therapists provide ongoing support and strategies for parents.

 

 

Group Therapy

Social and group sessions include other children video conferencing together with a therapist leading them through activities and interactive games. Our social groups have proven to be especially therapeutic during this current period of physical distancing. We’re able to work on socialization, connection, building resiliency, and helping children find calm and a sense of control through imaginative play.
