Keeping up with Technology -4

I recently listened to an online panel discussion on the topic of:
"Use of telehealth in early intervention and school system practice."
The speakers were Jana Cason, OT on the panel and very involved in Amercian TeleHealth Association; Kim Hartmann, OT on the panel - she is the chair at Quinnipiac University; Sena Crutchley is the SLP and she works at UNC. The panel was chaired by Sandra Schefkind, MS, OTR/L Pediatric Coordinator American Occupational Therapy Association.
It is impressive to hear the progress in the profession of Occupational Therapy, the use of technology and the collaborative work with other team members such as Speech and Language Pathologists.  What is possibly more impressive is that the online discussion took place in USA, I listened to a recording of the live virtual chat from my home in Israel. Amazing how continuing education has become so much more accessible.
