I understand that the laws that protect the privacy and the confidentiality of my child’s medical information also apply to teletherapy.
I understand that while teletherapy treatment has been found to be effective in treating a wide range of disorders, there is no guarantee that all treatment of all clients will be effective.
I understand that there are potential risks involving technology, including but not limited to: internet interruptions and technical difficulties. I understand that technical difficulties with hardware, software, and internet connection may result in service interruption and that the we are not responsible for any technical problems, nor do we guarantee that services will be available or work as expected. I understand that I am responsible for information security on my computer and in my own physical location and that although HIPPA compliant, ZOOM and any other technology used by the Boston Ability Center to deliver teletherapies may be vulnerable to breaches in security. I understand that I am responsible for creating and maintaining a username(s) and password(s) and that it is my responsibility to keep these secure. I understand that I am responsible to ensure privacy at my own location by being in a private location so other individuals cannot hear my or my child’s conversations.
I understand that either I or BAC’s speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist or physical therapist can discontinue the teletherapy services if it is felt that this type of service delivery does not benefit my child’s needs or for any other reason.
