1. The Importance of Best Practice Pediatric Teleintervention

Chapter 1 examines virtual therapy etiquette, time management, productivity, and improvising during online therapy sessions. This is essential for engaging children in a therapy service delivery model that has its own unique limitations.

2. Pediatric Teleintervention: Unlimited Ideas From Limited Resources

Chapter 2 teaches therapists how to use common household items to create fun and engaging activities for children to develop fine motor, gross motor, sensory, and speech and language skills. Due to limited resources universal to pediatric teletherapy, it is important for therapists to have a list of common objects that can easily be used as therapy tools.

3. Pediatric Teleintervention: Treatment Planning

Chapter 3 instructs therapists on a variety of treatment planning strategies specific to pediatric teleintervention for productive sessions. These strategies are important for therapists to know because teletherapy planning requires more up-front preparation than in-person planning due to coordinating multiple facets.

4. Developing a Digital Therapy Library

Chapter 4 helps therapists glean information about how to develop a digital resource library. Just like a tangible therapy bag is important for in-person pediatric therapy, so too is a digital therapy bag for teletherapy.
