Instead of missing an appointment or making the drive, schedule a TeleHealth appointment! Your therapist can observe, interact with, and treat your child all from the convenience of your home by using wifi and a smartphone or computer. TeleHealth allows you to never miss an appointment due to sickness or other circumstances, provides an opportunity for other family members to participate and learn, and lets the therapist tailor treatment for at-home success.

Client Spotlight
Francisco and his son, Nicholas
It was a struggle for Francisco to get his three-year old son, Nicholas, to eat anything other than baby food. After a couple of sessions at PTN, Nicholas was finally trying new foods and textures but would get home and revert back to baby food. Using telehealth sessions, Nicholas was able to make progress at home. Francisco shared, "I am so grateful for Ms. Lily and the many things I learned from participating in telehealth. She showed me how to be patient, to start small, and that it's okay if Nicholas doesn't want to eat something after tasting it. With Lily's patience and expertise, Nicholas graduated from therapy and now eats several fruits, vegetables, and meats and drinks from a cup. I was sad that my telehealth sessions ended but am extremely proud of the tremendous progress Nicholas made with PTN."

Why use TeleHealth?

1) Treating a child in their own environment provides valuable information to the clinician on concerns not seen at the clinic setting
2) Parents are given the opportunity to participate and learn from the treatment sessions, giving them the tools needed to address issues that impact their child and other members of the family
3) The elimination of travel to the clinic which may be difficult for some families especially those who live in areas that are remote, rural or undeserved areas
4) Treatment of a medically fragile child in the comfort of their own home
