With the rising demand due to COVID-19, an increase in the accessibility and quality of telehealth services has transformed our ways of connecting, learning and supporting clients. Many parents of children with special needs share that their online therapy sessions reach into their homes and translate therapeutic concepts directly into their daily lives. For many of us as therapists, this is what we have always hoped our therapy would achieve: to generalize the skills learned in therapy to support families every day. Telehealth is not intended to replace our valued hands-on, face-to-face assessments and interventions, but it can be and is becoming a valued adjunct. Because therapy in a virtual platform will be part of a hybrid strategy forevermore, now is the time to hone and optimize our online therapy skills.
