Blue Fox Health actively advocates the benefits of telehealth for NDIS participants and how it can enhance access to occupational therapy and dietitian services. Furthermore, telehealth removes the travel costs associated with home visits making your funding stretch further.
Therapy Services via Telehealth
Speech therapy via telehealth has proven to be effective in improving communication skills for individuals of all ages. By leveraging video conferencing and online tools, speech therapists can provide personalized assessments, exercises, and interventions in the comfort of the client’s own home. Telehealth eliminates geographical barriers, allowing access to qualified therapists regardless of location. It also offers convenience, flexibility, and increased engagement, as clients can easily integrate therapy into their daily routines.
Occupational therapy (OT) is a crucial component of the NDIS, as it helps individuals with disabilities achieve their goals and improve their quality of life. However, accessing OT can sometimes be challenging for NDIS participants due to factors such as geographic location, mobility limitations, and availability of qualified therapists. I have heard anecdotes of wait lists of up to a year. This is just unacceptable. This is where telehealth can make a significant impact.
