Description

Although telehealth services have been in existence for many years, the COVID-19 pandemic has seen an unprecedented but necessary shift in the administration of distance learning and related services for students and private clinic clients in order to ensure their safety.

With information changing daily and schools and clinics scrambling to provide some sort of normalcy for the pediatric population, it is up to professionals like you to calm fears and move forward, navigating this new normal with professionalism and competency.

This 2-hour webcast will cut to the heart of what is needed to effectively deliver telespeech, OT, PT, mental health/counseling, and teaching to students who need us now more than ever.
