Robin Nardi

cheryl Flemming-Buck
09:06

Shae-Brie Dow
09:06
there’s an echo
Beth Mitchell
09:55
There is an echo- everyone needs to turn their mic off.
Lori Kirn
09:57
echo fading in and out
Shae-Brie Dow
10:09
glad to hear everyone at HFP are well
Cheri Alexander
10:40
Everyone who is not speaking needs to be muted...
Cheri Alexander
12:14
I think it is because Maria Fischer is not muted
Bainy Suri
12:17
I would like to understand what the District is required to provide. If my child has music at school can I hire a virtual musical teacher to provide that service.
Michele Meyer
12:21
What is an individual has to be quarantined in another location due to COVID-19 and are providing services in a location with a different NPI number - how will that impact billing..
Debbie Shulkows
12:31
must schools follow the number of group and individual therapy for related services per the iep
Karen Rea
12:42
Hi Maria
Linda Wieseneck
13:02
So glad you are doing this! Thanks
Cheri Alexander
13:33
Maria - your mic needs to be muted unless you are speaking, thats where the feedback is coming from
Karen Rea
13:42
that's me
Robin Nardi
13:50
are therapists (OT, PT, Speech) allowed to do teletherapy during this crisis.
Karen Rea
14:45
that's all I can ask
Mary Baumont
15:15
Are related services given as a consulting/ activitiy session counting (not teletherapy per se)as a session for an IEP mandate?
Maria Lorenz
15:27
what would be the guidance for OT related service for a child that has emotional regulation issues? I was given a packet which cannot address these issues via paper and my district is not offering teleservice.
Karen Rea
16:40
my ask was could they do it virtually?
Bainy Suri
17:39
Our kids suffer regression. Time is of the essencde.
Bainy Suri
18:33
I disagree if we can do telemedicine we can do virtual meetings?
Karen Rea
18:47
OK - so far they have been cooperative with on-line learning accomodations & modifications so thank you! makes sense
Karen Rea
19:03
I can hear you Maria
michelle attardi
19:47
thhis lingo with best efforts and being reasonable, how does that relate to missed speech, ot, pt mandates
Beth Mitchell
21:49
SLP here- Teletherapy for Speech-Language Therapy services has not been approved by legislature yet for us to provide.
Jen Biener
23:18
Beth, is that the same for students as it is for adults? fellow SLP here!
Beth Mitchell
24:15
That’s per NJSHA for school based SLPs.
Mary Baumont
24:29
Can districts be asked to provide ipads or chrome books to students who are in out of district placements?
michelle attardi
24:46
you arenot muted
Michele Meyer
24:47
you ae not unmuted
Sandra Lynch
24:55
Maria, you are not muted
Shae-Brie Dow
25:05
my concern is specifically about those youth that will age out soon
Michele Meyer
25:14
lower left corner of the screen you should see the mic icon
Michele Meyer
25:19
that will mute you
Amy Kelly
25:36
Maria, at the bottom of your screen there is a pic of a microphone. Use that to mute and unmute yourself :)
Lyndsie Erdy
25:44
Can you please speak to (1) legal issues related to providing instruction via an online platform like Zoom? Also curious about (2) legal issues related to using packets with some students but online instruction with others (due to access to internet/computers) and (3) documentation recommended to show "good faith" effort is being made.
Sandra Lynch
25:48
Maria, if you move your mouse over the screen, you will see a little mic pop upin lower left hand corner.... click on it to mute and make sure the red line appears through the mic
Shae-Brie Dow
31:24
Do you see a point of advocacy for those youth that are nearing the end of the public ed spec Ed programming? compensatory Ed?
Jaclyn Nagle
35:56
Is an RTF required to allow students to do school virtually?
Georgianna Thomas
38:00
what if a child is in a nursing home and they won't let you talk to her on phone
Jen Biener
38:00
are there policies in place to protect group home residents from visitors and non-essential staff? For our group home residents that cannot social distance, shouldn't providers be very strict about limiting group homes to only nurses and direct care staff?
cheryl Flemming-Buck
39:48
Unless terminal- at this time- no visitor or support person. Pregnant or in ER waiting admssion
Georgianna Thomas
40:11
The special needs child has no one but her mother the courts and law guardians won't let parent talk to child they won't answer the phone any recommendations what this parent can do the child doesn't talk she is 14
Georgianna Thomas
40:56
Also 1 nj nsg home people have DIED
Sandra Lynch
44:48
For those students aging out.... if we do not return, what comp ed are they legally allowed to get
Marnie McNany
46:20
On the topic of guardianship, what is the status of applications that have been submitted to the court? Are these cases being moved along? Are there timing concerns (do the applications time-out?) or have those guidelines been relaxed?
Brenda Considine
47:19
From Christina: My daughter will be 18 at the end of July. With all that’s going on with this crisis. Do I go about proceeding with guardianship during this time?
Lori Kirn
47:22
Can I suggest that maybe take all of these questions and assemble something with responses to post online once you can answer thoroughly? Then for the next webinar, schedule another Q&A but mandate questions to be submitted ahead of time. Also, there should also be a way to have questions submitted separately (privately)/directed offline so that they aren't overwhelming in this chat feature.
Lori Kirn
48:23
Maybe even open it up for people to submit all their questions to the firm and then compile an FAQ so that you don't get bombarded with all these questions? Just a suggestion ...
Sandra Lynch
48:32
At this point, I believe related services have been instructed not to happen..... truth?
Jaclyn Nagle
49:05
I do
Bainy Suri
49:06
I have a question. Bainy suri
cheryl Flemming-Buck
50:08
yes I submitted a question- are you getting to those
Michele Meyer
50:09
trying to raise my hand I cannot find that icon
Alexander Biener
50:40
Are group home obliged to have personal protective equipment on hand in case of exposure? what if client or staff exposed or positive and stays in the home?
Sandra Lynch
52:33
Are related services actually happening and how? Why can they not conduct virtual face to face like teachers?
Michele Meyer
53:08
What is the law when it comes to staff being tested positive two, three, four, or more days after providing the service - what is the timeframe of the other staff and residents to be tested?
Brenda Considine
58:32
what about teletherapy
Marnie McNany
59:06
how about guardianship questions-looks like there are 2…
Brenda Considine
01:01:36
From Christina on the phone: My daughter will be 18 at the end of July. With all that’s going on with this crisis. Do I go about proceeding with guardianship during this time?
Shannon Boon
01:01:41
Microsoft Teams is HIPPA compliant
Jen Biener
01:02:14
are developmental centers and intermediate care facilities considered medical facilities? If so, are they bound to follow CDC and CMS recommendations for long-term care and nursing homes?
Lyndsie Erdy
01:04:17
What if, in a day school setting, some students live on campus and some don't. What happens when you can't provide the same types of educational services to both? e.g., Zoom instruction for students living in residence vs. packets for students at home (due to lack of rescoures)?
Sandra Lynch
