Teletherapy is the online delivery of speech, occupational, and mental health therapy services through a live, HIPAA-compliant video connection. Teletherapy sessions are scheduled just like traditional speech, occupational therapy, or mental health sessions. Your session would be virtually the same as if it was being conducted in-person. All you need is a computer or laptop that is connected to the internet, and we’ll do the rest!
How is teletherapy different from traditional therapy?
- Privacy- Teletherapy removes the concern of being seen by other community members for those who value more privacy.
- Efficiency- Eliminating the stress and anxiety of driving and being on the road.
- Borderless Accessibility- Distance and location are no longer an issue. You can receive therapy, no matter how far you live.
- Access For Disabled- If you are bedridden or have a chronic illness, you can benefit from our online treatment in the comfort of your home.
- Training beneficial for carry-over in your child’s day-to-day life.
- Better public health- It is also an excellent option for slowing the spread of illness, for example, during the COVID-19 pandemic or in the flu and cold season. Ensuring your child is getting the continued care they are used to and need.
Support your child’s learning at home by enrolling in Mind Institute’s Virtual Intervention Program (VIP)
What are your 3-5-year-old child’s development goals?
The early years lay the foundations for school-based learning to come. Goals to achieve are:
- Cutting with scissors, good pencil grasp, coloring, letters, and number formation
- The ability to sit and listen attentively for a while
- Ability to separate from parents and self-soothing
- Ability to share, take turns problem solve, play skills and make friends
- Identify letters, numbers, and shapes along with sound associations
- Daily living skills and independence
- Develop imagination and creativity
If your child is not reaching age-appropriate goals, early intervention is the key, and our program is the best opportunity to close gaps in development.
How can your 3 to 5-year-old child learn during COVID19?
Mind Institute’s Virtual Intervention Program brings sought-after specialists into your home along with offering the experiences and activities needed to provide your child with age-appropriate skills in the five primary domains of social, cognitive, academic, and daily living skills. Through our customized online sessions and the weekly kits that we hand deliver to your doorsteps, you would be able to present your preschool child with a language-rich environment, a variety of sensory-rich stimulation, and hands-on opportunities to explore essential concepts increasing their learning efficiency and capacity. Our online sessions are comprehensive and provide your child with access to a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including Special Educators, Speech and Language Therapists, Psychologists, and Occupational Therapists.
Our unique model fosters the family’s ability to promote your child’s development through coaching from our specialist team. We teach parents how to carryover strategies outside of sessions, which is imperative to a child’s developmental progress.
Your role as a parent
Your role as a parent would be to structure your child’s day and help with the transition between the activities. Specifically, parents are asked to:
- Wake up at the same time each day, change your child’s pajamas, and eat breakfast to establish a daily routine.
- Provide a quiet room with natural light, a desk, and a comfortable chair.
- Make sure you have a working computer or a laptop and internet. Ensure your computer has a camera, request a test run with your therapist if necessary, be sure that the speed of your internet is fast.
- Ensure that your child has the materials needed for that day (from the kit that we deliver to your home)
- Stay close to your child to monitor if any help is needed, don’t expect for them to be seated through the whole session, let them work standing up, moving, and interacting in their own ways. We will be guiding you on how to help them come back to the screen.
- Meet with the therapist at the end of the session to receive further recommendations for skills to be generalized in the home setting. Suggestions and feedback are always welcome.
Our online sessions have proven successful, and we encourage you to try them. We offer the first session for free, so please call us today on +974 3337 7648 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some reviews from some of our parents:
“I’m writing this email to feedback on VIP program which we started with my son Ilia 2 weeks ago. This is an absolutely incredible program which supports my son’s learning/ communicative needs even during this hard time of school’s closure. I was a bit worried at first how he would react to distance learning and whether he will cope with tasks given online, but from the very first training session he grabbed the concept and just greeted his teacher as if she was in the room. I was very surprised to know that every week I will receive not only detailed plan, but also complete kit to support this plan, this is just beyond any praise! The kit includes all the necessary supplies to support creative learning, and it’s so easy to prepare for every session. More than that it’s tailored to my child’s needs and interests! The team was so attentive to ilia’s liking of firefighting topic so that they created the whole set for math(addition), fun games in firefighting theme! Thank you for that! The program is also helpful for me as a parent to better understand my kid, learn his strengths and spend more quality time together having fun and lots of laughs! My son loves everyday sessions and looks forward to seeing his teacher and assistants and therapists! I can’t thank you enough for presenting this amazing opportunity to families who have to organize in- house schooling. Thank you to all the MI team and see you soon on the next session!”

“I am sending you to tell you about my experience with the Virtual Program that Mind Institute started because of the recent situation of COVID-19 virus. As you know my son just joined in the middle of February 2020. So he spent only almost 1 month and then center was closed. To be honest I found real care from all the staff for the benefit of my son. The online lessons were difficult the first week but all the therapists worked hard with me and I learned a lot about how to deal with him and I come to know what type of toys are useful since you are sending us a weekly plan with all the resources needed. When I ask for something or have a concern all Mind Institute family is available to help. Thanks for your patience, hard work and support.”

“I would like to extend my appreciation to the entire team, for their work with the VIP program. The program has been very insightful, for me as a parent as I am able to understand better my son’s challenge’s in a study setting/ environment. The weekly packs that are sent to our home are well thought off and this has been a pleasure for him to discover each week. These are very uncertain times, for all of us. But together, we all make a difference and can come out stronger.”

“I am glad that Leen is interacting smoothly and efficiently with virtual learning. Considering Leen’s difficulty in transitioning and adapting to new environments/people, I never expected it to work. Also that it takes place at home and within Leen’s comfort zone, I expected Leen to object. Yet, she adapted with little tantrums or fuss. In my opinion, the most beneficial part of the teletherapy program is that Leen didn’t stop learning. Instead of just being locked at home at this pandemic period, she is making the best use of her time. We can clearly say that she is more interested in letters, words and making sentences. She is still in LOVE with water activities and any learning that includes sensory tools, like finding letters from a pile of rice. She liked matching and opposites. And she loved the wooden sight words puzzle. And you know what is her best, Reading time! I have a book worm here. Thank you for your patience. You have played a big role in her adaptation. You know how to introduce the activity and how to reintroduce it, if she somehow objected doing it at some point. I am so happy that her skills are continuously thriving. Teletherapy has come to us as a rescue.”

Good morning. I have been meaning to send this message for some time now to thank Mind institute and especially Ms. Christy for helping my daughter with her language skills. The dealings with your institute were very professional and Ms. Christy was a godsend to us. Please thank her again on our behalf for being such an exemplary teacher for our daughter. We are very grateful for the patience and effort she put in not just with my daughter but also with quelling our anxieties and curiosities. She was excellent in keeping my daughter engaged in her sessions and in making her comfortable. We are extremely thankful to her and to Mind institute for the help that was given to our daughter.
We were worried the moment we found out that the center will be closed due to our current situation. But the family was really amazed at how the center handled the uncertainties. My son is now attending teletherapy sessions for his OT and SLT. It was quite new and challenging in the first few sessions but because of the hard work and professionalism of the team, I could say they are doing a great job! Thank you Ms. Madeeha (SLT), Ms. Lili (OT) and Ms. Azza for all your hard work to make things happen for all your students. Stay safe everyone! Eid Mubarak!
Mind Institute has always been my first and only choice when it came for special needs for my son. My son has progressed tremendously in all aspects and I’m grateful for all the hard work put in by all the therapists and assistants. I’m truly grateful to Ms Gillian (special educator) for all the hard work and her indefatigable calm and courtesy when it comes to making my son feel at home and satisfying a worried and super involved parent like me. Ms Vanessa has also developed an amazing relationship with my son and she is extremely loving and patient when it comes to calming my son down.

I am so glad my daughter has joined Mind Institute and that is because of the improvement we see and feel in her overall development. We were so worried and concerned before she joined. But they have amazed us with all the intervention. She has massively developed and we are so pleased
Professional, passionate and caring! Highly recommend them.
The Mind Institute helps you fulfil your needs, it helped me improve my concentration and I made good progress with them, it also tries to help you with other aspects you didn't know you needed, because it did also try to help me with my social skills. In addition, it is very flexible with scheduling appointments.

If you are looking for a professional and caring center to work with you closely to develop your child’s skills and abilities, then Mind Institute is the one. My ASD daughter has been going there for more than two years now and I have continuously been satisfied with all her progress. They know how to identify the child’s struggles, structure a development plan and address the issues accordingly. The improvement we have seen in her is amazing. She is more independent and confident now. She is going to a mainstream school two months from now and I cannot be more grateful. The whole team are hearty and care for the kids in the center. I drop my daughter there every day with confidence, knowing that she is in good hands. Mind Institute has been a lovely part of our family and we are full of gratitude for all their efforts.

My son has been attending the EIP at Mind Institute for the last 2 years. We are very satisfied with our son’s progress and with Minds personalized support and plan. I especially appreciate my son’s warm personal rapport with the teaching & assisting staff which makes our journey a whole lot easier. I’m grateful for Ms Sharon and Ms Vanessa patience and support provided to us at all times.
Excellent service. Strong and clear communication throughout, very flexible and supportive despite COVID changes. Very friendly and engaging staff, my son always felt at ease and welcome. Would highly recommend. In terms of results, excellent progress throughout therapy and sustainable results.
We have had a great experience with Mind Institute both through tele-therapy and in person. My son was so excited to attend each week and his therapist, Hafsa, was excellent. The team were professional and welcoming and I have no hesitations in recommending their services.

I would like to extend my appreciation to the entire team, for their work with the VIP program. The program has been very insightful, for me as a parent. As I am able to better understand Leon’s challenge’s in a study setting/ environment. I do feel it is important to keep the activities as interactive and stimulating as possible. Because this keeps Leon engaged and focused through the session. The weekly kits, sent to us have been very well planned and organized. This has made it easy for me to understand as a parent.

كانت تجربة الزوم ناجحة بالنسبة لي حيث ان ليس ابنتي فقط من استفادت منه انا كذلك استفدت وتعلمت اشياء لم اكم اعرفها من قبل واصبحت اعرف كيف اتعامل مع ابنتي بطرق علميه. شكرا مايند انستتيوت كم انت رائع
It’s great seeing Myles being busy, especially doing a body parts activity. We’ve been trying so hard to get Myles to do things like that at home, but he would never do them! The only thing I think he really shows interest in is music and musical instruments! He has recently started to imitate us playing his drum kit and other little instruments like tambourine...
