Abilities in Action is open for in-person visits and provides teletherapy virtually using telehealth.
Abilities in Action offers teletherapy sessions via telehealth. Teletherapy sessions are designed to provide direct intervention to children while also providing support and consultation to parents and caregivers. These sessions are not designed to have the child be a passive recipient of information coming from a screen. Teletherapy does not require that your child to remain seated and focused for the length of the session. Instead, the therapist interacts directly with the child by doing things like modeling movement based activities, sharing an interactive whiteboard or offering feedback on the child's performance. The parent is asked to be a part of the session as a facilitator to be sure the child is safe, can access materials and to help the child participate fully in therapist guided activities. Teletherapy sessions can include siblings, everyday materials and toys from around the house to create activities that are fun and of high therapeutic value to your child.
