Umbo is a social enterprise that offers speech and occupational therapy to families in rural and remote Australia. With our experienced team of online therapists, we’re confident we can achieve therapy goals just as easily as in-person therapy.
This is because we use a person-centred approach to care, which involves the use of a key worker who works with the individual to support them in therapy goals. A keyworker can be a teacher, support worker, or anyone who is close to the individual.
With our approach, the family and keyworker are upskilled in strategies to achieve therapy goals, meaning you don’t need to see a therapist all of the time. Via online consultations, video calls and phone calls, upskilled members of the ‘team’ can carry out the strategies taught to them and give an individual a 24/7 approach to therapy.
Umbo’s therapists use innovative ways to stay in contact with families when access to technology is an issue. With lots of experience in online therapy, our team can overcome any obstacle to get people access to quality healthcare, regardless of where they live.
