As our community continues to adapt to the COVID-19 epidemic, Compleo has started offering virtual visits to patients who need to or prefer to stay at home. Pediatric appointments may seem challenging from your home, but it can be done in most instances! To help your session be as productive as possible, we put together a list of the most helpful tools to make your kiddos session run smoothly.

Top 5 Most Helpful Things:

  • Couch cushion
  • Laundry basket 
  • Ball
  • Pool noodle
  • Age appropriate puzzle

The items listed above are things available in most homes. Having these available for your session provides you & your physical therapist several options for different types of support, entertainment, and tasks for your kiddo.

Other Tips:

  • Pick a quiet room with few distractions.
  • Make sure there is room for your child to move around.
  • Set up your device (cell phone, laptop, tablet) in a place that provides a wide view so your therapist can see you & your child move around.

Compleo has also created a telehealth form that can be emailed prior to telehealth visits. This form will help make sure you have the right setup and equipment for the best at home session possible.

If you have any questions about whether telehealth is the right option for you and your child, please do not hesitate to ask!
