I’m sure you’re all too aware that if there is one constant at the moment with Covid-19, it’s that things keep changing! Like you, we are monitoring the news on a daily basis and making decisions about how we can keep our staff, clients and community safe.

As allied health professionals, we will keep providing our usual therapy services to our clients for as long as it is safe for us to do. We are still offering face to face therapy but you’ll note we are vigilant about handwashing and hand sanitisers…whether we see you in the Centre or in schools or at home. We are also keeping staff home when they have flu/cold symptoms and asking our clients to stay home too if they are unwell.

We’re getting a little creative too!

Telehealth services are available. This means therapy via telephone and video conferencing.  A few of our staff are currently learning about videoconferencing and how to use this for therapy. Others have already been providing services this way to our country clients for some time. The nice thing is that most of our children will be fine in this medium (and probably be the experts!). It will probably be the adults catching up!

Where we can we are also looking at what we can do to set up independent therapy tasks for those self-isolated at home, particularly with our ABA clients.

Please feel free to talk to your consultant about how we can support you and your children. We will be working hard to be flexible.

We’re not planning on going anywhere just yet!

Clinical Director
