Challenges and prospects of Teletherapy in Africa Webinar by TAF and KISE

The recent times in view of the COVID-19 pandemic has seen a global shift in how work and service delivery has always been structured over the years across different sectors. In particular, the majority of activities that were perceived to require in-person interaction have been conducted virtually through various digital platforms.

Provision and access to therapy services has not been left out. However, based on the sensitive nature of therapy support services, we may need to explore the bearing that adoption of Teletherapy has on the overall effectiveness of therapy provision.

Organized by The Action Foundation (TAF) and Kenya Institute of Special Education (KISE), this webinar shall seek to provide an in-depth analysis of the challenges and prospects of Teletherapy in the African context.
