Audio is great
We can hear. Thanks.
still no sound - breaking up
there’s an echo
There is an echo- everyone needs to turn their mic off.
echo fading in and out
glad to hear everyone at HFP are well
Everyone who is not speaking needs to be muted...
I think it is because Maria Fischer is not muted
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.
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..
must schools follow the number of group and individual therapy for related services per the iep
So glad you are doing this! Thanks
Maria - your mic needs to be muted unless you are speaking, thats where the feedback is coming from
are therapists (OT, PT, Speech) allowed to do teletherapy during this crisis.
that's all I can ask
Are related services given as a consulting/ activitiy session counting (not teletherapy per se)as a session for an IEP mandate?
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.
my ask was could they do it virtually?
Our kids suffer regression. Time is of the essencde.
I disagree if we can do telemedicine we can do virtual meetings?
OK - so far they have been cooperative with on-line learning accomodations & modifications so thank you! makes sense
I can hear you Maria
thhis lingo with best efforts and being reasonable, how does that relate to missed speech, ot, pt mandates
SLP here- Teletherapy for Speech-Language Therapy services has not been approved by legislature yet for us to provide.
Beth, is that the same for students as it is for adults? fellow SLP here!
That’s per NJSHA for school based SLPs.
Can districts be asked to provide ipads or chrome books to students who are in out of district placements?
you arenot muted
you ae not unmuted
Maria, you are not muted
my concern is specifically about those youth that will age out soon
lower left corner of the screen you should see the mic icon
that will mute you
Maria, at the bottom of your screen there is a pic of a microphone. Use that to mute and unmute yourself :)
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.
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
Do you see a point of advocacy for those youth that are nearing the end of the public ed spec Ed programming? compensatory Ed?
Is an RTF required to allow students to do school virtually?
what if a child is in a nursing home and they won't let you talk to her on phone
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?
Unless terminal- at this time- no visitor or support person. Pregnant or in ER waiting admssion
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
Also 1 nj nsg home people have DIED
For those students aging out.... if we do not return, what comp ed are they legally allowed to get
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?
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?
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.
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 ...
At this point, I believe related services have been instructed not to happen..... truth?
I have a question. Bainy suri
yes I submitted a question- are you getting to those
trying to raise my hand I cannot find that icon
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?
Are related services actually happening and how? Why can they not conduct virtual face to face like teachers?
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?
what about teletherapy
how about guardianship questions-looks like there are 2…
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?
Microsoft Teams is HIPPA compliant
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?
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)?
If you offer this again, it would be great!
Thank you so much for offering this session. If we are current clients (in the midst of a case/submission) and have submitted a question, perhaps a member fo the team can reach out via email or phone to share an answer as well.
Thank ou for doing this. Stay safe
Thank you for offering this! Appreciate it and looking forward to your responses to leftover questions!
thank you! these are so helpful!
Thank you for your time!
