Telehealth is officially underway!
We are pleased to hear from so many families wanting to take advantage of this service. By now, you should have received a call from your BCBA and/or OT and Speech therapists to begin scheduling your telehealth sessions. If you have not been able to connect with your clinician, please reach out to us at 855-324-0885 and we will help get this scheduled for you right away.
What are the benefits of teletherapy?
Your child’s progress is very important and we want to continue to be there for you during these challenging times. Expanded services through teletherapy for ABA, occupational and speech therapies will allow your child to get the medically prescribed autism treatment they need. The additional benefits of utilizing telehealth services during this time include:
- Provide consistency to the plan of care; a key factor of success in autism therapy treatment
- Flexible session times
- More opportunities for parent involvement and training
- Ability to focus on natural environment training
In addition, if you have not done so, we will need you to complete the consent form online before teletherapy can begin. You should have received a notification in regard to this yesterday.

Hopebridge has made the difficult decision to close all in-person therapy at the centers effective at close of business today, March 19, 2020 with plans to re-open April 6, 2020.
Opportunity for Telehealth
Although our day-to-day lives have been significantly impacted by these events, we are striving to ensure continuity of care for our kids. Some states already have Telehealth opportunities available. For those that do not, we are working aggressively with state governments and the insurance companies for this option to become more widely available as soon as possible during this period of uncertainty.
At Hopebridge, we have the technologies currently in place to provide secure, HIPAA compliant services. Your child’s continued progress is very important to us and we want to continue to be there for you during this difficult time. We would encourage each of you to take advantage of these Telehealth services as they become available.
We plan to reach out to you in the near future to discuss these telehealth service options.
During this challenging time, we want you to know that everyone here at Hopebridge is thinking about you. If all aspects of our communities work together, we will get through the upcoming difficult days. We will notify you when face-to-face therapy becomes available.
Thank you for placing your trust in us and continuing to be a partner in helping children with autism. We love our Hopebridge family and we look forward to seeing everyone again very soon.
