Recently our country had to implement “out the box” thinking, due to the highly contagious COVID-19. With “Stay at Home Orders” and “Social Distancing”, direct therapeutic intervention can be challenging. As therapists, avoidance of in-person interactions negatively impacts typical face-to-face therapeutic intervention. Teletherapy is not a new platform, but currently it’s becoming notably the preferred intervention for non-acute pediatric patients. Transitioning from face-to-face intervention to technology- based intervention can be challenging with pediatric clients between the ages of 3-5 years old. How can I direct the child to the screen, what if the child moves from the camera and how can I keep the child’s attention for an entire session?

This online module will provide a variety of pediatric therapy activities that will increase the client’s participation during teletherapy. This educational event will also discuss parent/caregiver involvement, equipment needs and therapists’ responsibility within a teletherapy session.
