Due to the apparent longevity of our quarantine, we have been working around the clock to get teletherapy up and running and approved by your insurance companies. Below you will find a consent for treatment via teletherapy (PDF). We will need one of these completed for each patient being treated by our clinicians. I will be emailing families over the next couple of days, but if you want to preemptively complete the document (with signature) and email to us here.
It is important for us to note:
We have the Occupational Therapy department ready to treat starting next week via teletherapy (We will confirm appointments via text).
Speech-language department is a bit tricky at the moment because we are waiting on Governor Abbott to sign an executive order allowing the speech-language pathology assistants we all know and love (Katherine, Katie, Haylee, and Ashley) to be able to provide services via teletherapy with Amy's supervision and guidance. So, until we get this executive order or until we are able to find another solution our hands are tied on speech-language therapy. However, we are still preparing as though he will sign this executive order. If you have connections to Governor Abbott feel free to advocate on our behalf.
Please remain safe and quarantined.
Your TCOB Family
