A Team Meeting is an opportunity for therapy assistants to be provided with a clear therapy plan and guidance on how to implement therapy interventions in a safe and effective manner. The therapy assistant can observe how the AHP conducts sessions and clarify anything in the plan that they are unsure about prior to beginning independent sessions.
Therapy assistants can only start working on therapy goals once a Team Meeting has been completed. If it is not possible for the Team Meeting to occur in person, Team Meetings can be completed via telehealth or over the phone.
A therapy assistant can start sessions straight away with a focus on rapport-building. Once a Team Meeting has occurred, the therapy assistant will then be able to implement the therapy plan independently.
