Remote communities connecting up

Families of children with disability living in Emerald, Barcaldine, and Longreach are set to benefit from our Early Intervention service’s new telehealth delivery option.

Telehealth, the use of telecommunication techniques for the purpose of providing telemedicine, medical education, and health education over a distance, will allow Myhorizon to connect with communities needing disability support services that would otherwise miss out due to the prohibitively long distances they would need to travel to access traditional bricks and mortar providers.

Geraldine McKinnon, State Coordinator of Myhorizon’s Baby Bridges Early Intervention Therapy Programme, will visit Emerald on September 15 with Baby Bridges occupational therapist Adele Suda to talk to families about the program at our Children’s Therapy for Remote Communities Forum.
