It has been an unprecedented few months with the pandemic outbreak of COVID-19. HOPE Therapies is committed to providing safe and effective services throughout this trying time. We ask all clients to promptly cancel appointments if they, or anyone in their families, are showing flu like symptoms or have a fever. Our staff will be following best practices outlined on the CDC's website and we encourage our clients to do the same. Here are the steps we are taking to ensure safety for our staff, your families, and our community as a whole. As Orange County moves through reopening phases, we will continue to update this page. For more detailed information regarding reopening, please visit Orange County's website
Additionally, we have expanded our , available now.
Our Saturday Social Skills & Self Regulation Workshop will be postponed until further notice. We are working diligently to find a solution that will best fit all families registered. We are closely monitoring the changing nature of COVID-19 and best practices.
If your child regularly receives speech therapy services in school, services may be available depending on your daycare or school as they reopen. Please contact your school and see what their visitor service provider policy is, as each daycare and school differs. If you would prefer to move to in-home services, that continues to be an option.
In-home services will continue at clients' comfort. Staff will continue regular temperature monitoring and will maintain social distancing while maximizing therapy effectiveness. Staff will work closely with families and clients to take recommended precautionary measures including mandatory health surveys. If families wish, therapy can be moved to an online format instead.
Previously all HOPE Therapies materials were sanitized every week. All materials will now be sanitized after each appointment. If you prefer, appointments may be conducted only using materials from your home.
