Meet With Therapists From The Convenience of Your Own Home

Irabina’s Telehealth platform allows our clinicians to deliver support to children and families throughout Australia, regardless of your location or circumstances. Using your computer, phone or tablet you can connect with your clinician at a time and location convenient to you.

Telehealth enables us to work with your child in a relaxed setting; schedule quick check-ups with you as you need them; and leverage an understanding of your home environment to develop strategies and activities that fit in with your lifestyle. You can choose to just do Telehealth sessions, or mix them in with regular centre visits – whatever works best for you, your child and your family.

Irabina offers individual, group and parent/carer sessions via Telehealth.

Why Choose Telehealth?

Irabina’s Telehealth sessions are ideal for:

  • Time-poor families
  • Mixing in-centre and online therapy
  • Observing and supporting children in their home environment
  • Families in remote or rural locations without local access to services
  • Children who are unable to commute to our sites
  • Children and young people who desire increased privacy
  • Families needing to stay home due to sickness or school holidays

Telehealth isn’t simply a replacement to in-centre appointments, it’s an entirely new way of meeting and learning with our experienced therapists and clinicians.

How it Works

We have developed a straightforward Telehealth system to keep it as easy as possible for children, parents and carers to access supports.

  1. At the time of your scheduled appointment, you login to our Telehealth application using your phone, tablet or laptop.
  2. Throughout the session you and your child will be able to hear, see, and speak with the therapist as usual.
  3. The therapist may provide you and your child with videos to watch or interactive exercises to participate in.
  4. In a group session, you and your child will be able to see, hear and interact with other group participants and therapists.

If you require assistance getting set up for Telehealth, please contact your clinician and they will be happy to help and set up a “test run”.

What equipment do I need to access Telehealth?

In order to access Telehealth you will need a phone, tablet, laptop or computer with a webcam, microphone and speaker. This is so that you and your child can see, hear and speak with the clinician. You will also need a stable internet connection.

How old does my child need to be?

This can depend on the program, however in general we are able to provide services to all children and young people from 0-22. Younger children or those less comfortable using a phone, tablet or computer will need to be assisted by a parent or carer during the session.

Does my child need to be diagnosed with Autism?

No. We are happy to offer many of our programs to all children and young people, regardless of whether they are on the spectrum.

Can we still attend sessions in-person at Irabina?

Yes. You can choose whether you want to receive your supports in-person at one of our centres or online, or a combination of the two.

How much does Telehealth cost?

As a registered-NDIS provider, the majority of our services, whether they are accessed in-person at a centre or using Telehealth can be acquired using your NDIS plan. There is also the option to pay privately or using other funds if you prefer.
