Frequently Asked Questions
Melbourne Speech Pathology Clinic takes the safety of its clients and staff seriously, specifically with respect to COVID-19. We are constantly monitoring the advice issued by the Dept of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and adhere to the most current Occupational Health and Safety recommendations.
We are keen to continue to support our clients in maintaining optimal health and function. We offer the option for Telehealth – the use of video-conferencing technology to be able to deliver remote therapy services to clients. This requires access to a computer, phone or tablet and in many instances requires a caregiver to be present to facilitate therapy sessions. This is a great option for those who are isolating due to COVID-19, who live far away, have poor immunity, or who have limited transport options available to them. Please discuss telehealth with your speech pathologist if you feel this is a more suitable option for you.
