Coffee Talk with Dr Sue:
We know this time can be challenging for parents as our world has shifted into social distancing and parents are having to juggle work, schooling at home, limited social and sensory opportunities for your child, and a life of normalcy. To give back to our parents and support you during this time, TCTCI is offering “Coffee time with Dr. Zapf”. this is a time for you to join the zoom link and ask general questions that can help you support sensory needs for your child and develop home programs or routines for your child during this time. Questions should be focused on general concerns and strategies, for more individualized questions related to your child’s treatment, please contact your therapist for a parent consult. This is a free service to help parents through this difficult time and to provide a support group.
Starting Tuesday, March 31 from 1:00 – 1:50. Link: https://zoom.us/j/424138352?pwd=dnA2ZE5wRlpaRlZCeXNnOG8rZUFIUT09
Parent Telehealth Testimonial
“We have done 4 Telehealth Sessions (2 OT and 2 Speech) so far they’ve gone really well! The therapists emailed ahead of time with attachments needed for the session and also explained what to expect. It is more hands on for us as parents but the therapists make if fun and easy to manage. We are so thankful they are offering Telehealth to allow us to continue therapies during such an uncertain time. We appreciate everyone’s efforts at TCTCI who are working to make this happen!!”
