Telehealth: A Ray of Hope

In this KTN News feature, Rebecca Muiruri skillfully brought out the challenges faced by three families living with special needs children and what adjustment they had to make during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the school closure, the children could not access the very much needed routines and therapy services. At the end of the feature, we got to see that children living with special needs require constant access to therapy. Telehealth, a service delivery model where the therapist and the client use telecommunication devices to interact, was highlighted as a possible solution to bridge this gap.
