Video sessions provided our family with more regular access to therapy, ongoing support and has guided me in the right direction. It has been so valuable for my son, without it we wouldn’t be where we are now”. – Parent
“It encouraged me to step back as a therapist, and learn to provide direction to parents so they are able to work on tasks and activities with their child. This enables parents to feel more confident in working towards goals outside of therapy”. – Therapist
