Telehealth Therapy and Online Assessments

Our telehealth occupational therapy services bring support directly to you. Whether you require remote services across any area of occupational therapy, our therapists are committed to delivering the same high support standard, ensuring personalised care that meets your needs.

In a Telehealth session, your Occupational Therapist can:

  • Carefully listen to your concerns, assess your or your child’s needs, and apply appropriate interventions.
  • Demonstrate treatment techniques and explain them in straightforward language.
  • Educate you or your child on self-management practices and how to effectively manage behaviours
  • Develop a plan tailored to address your requirements.
  • Collaboratively establish a strategy to manage your concerns and set realistic goals.
  • Recommend necessary assistive devices or treatment aids to aid in your therapy.
  • Schedule ongoing sessions at times that perfectly align with your lifestyle.
  • If needed, directly refer you to other allied health services for comprehensive care.

Can Occupational Therapy Assessments be Completed Online?

Evolve Therapy Occupational Therapists can perform thorough online functional capacity assessments, covering aspects of functional assessment. This flexibility ensures that we can provide comprehensive assessments remotely whenever feasible.

Through our secure telehealth platform, our Occupational Therapists evaluate functional abilities related to daily activities, social participation, and necessary support services, tailoring each assessment to the individual’s unique situation.

Our therapists specialise in functional assessments and are adept at providing detailed, accurate reports via Telehealth. They ensure that all documentation reflects current needs and recommended supports. Online assessments reduce the need for travel and physical visits, offering a convenient option for those who qualify for remote evaluations and enhancing accessibility.

Online and Telehealth Benefits

Telehealth offers flexibility and accessibility, removing the barrier of geography to make services easily accessible for individuals in remote or rural areas or those who may not be able to make it into the clinic.

High quality occupational therapy support is provided safely and conveniently from the comfort of your home, significantly reducing travel time and associated costs. Telehealth ensures continuity of care, allowing for flexible scheduling that accommodates your schedule and helps you maintain progress in your therapy journey.

How Does a Telehealth Occupational Therapy Session Work?

Online occupational therapy delivers the same personalised care and support as in-person sessions but through a digital platform. Using video calls, an occupational therapist conducts assessments, demonstrates exercises, and provides guidance—all from the convenience of your home. This method is particularly effective for those who find travelling to a clinic challenging or live in remote areas.

Appointments take place via a secure telehealth platform that ensures privacy and allows for real-time interaction between you and your Occupational Therapist. During these sessions, therapists can perform telehealth functional capacity assessments or develop personalised treatment plans to meet your needs. They can also recommend and demonstrate assistive devices to aid your therapy.

Online occupational therapy sessions are designed to be flexible, accommodating your schedule and enabling continuous support. This approach ensures that no matter where you are, you have access to quality occupational therapy, helping you progress towards your goals.

Online Occupational Therapy FAQ’s

What do I need for Occupational Therapy Telehealth sessions?

Requirements include a stable internet connection, a computer or tablet with a camera, and a quiet, private session space.

Is Telehealth as effective as in-person clinic or home occupational therapy assessment?

    Evidence-based practice and our experience have demonstrated that face-to-face therapy has many benefits. Telehealth however, can be as effective as face-to-face therapy for many individuals, offering the same engagement and outcomes. It can also be a great approach to augment existing interventions and strategies.
