What is Telehealth & why choose it for OT?

Telehealth uses video or phone to deliver health care where one or more of the participants are separated by distance.

This means that we can provide Occupational Therapy to locations where services are limited.

You can access a highly skilled and experienced Occupational Therapist including a range of services; assessments, direct therapy with your child, parent consultations, home programs and more, all from your home.

Our Telehealth sessions provide a combination of a treatment and consultative model including resources to support you and your child.

We are currenting providing Occupational Therapy to clients in Mackay, Cloncurry, Parkinson & Texas.
