Response to COVID-19 Corona virus
At Communicate for Life Speech Pathology we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation and taking all necessary precautions as advised by health authorities.
To help you stay safe and stay at home your therapy supports are available to you online.
We expanded our tele-health video services so your therapy supports are consistently accessible.
Telehealth services are an evidenced based alternative mode of service
when people are not able to attend therapy in person.
We can all work together and play our part to stay safe and stay at home during this time. We've supported our clients to successfully switch to telehealth with multiple platforms you can use. Our team are happy to answer your questions about telehealth videoconferencing or seeing a therapist in person during this time. Together we can support each other in our community.
