Wonderland COVID-19 Updates
Updated – March 24, 2020
In alignment with Governor Inslee’s school closures and other emergency measures, effective Monday, March 16th, Wonderland Child & Family Services will be suspending all in-person appointments, therapy visits, and meetings with families until further notice.
Wonderland believes in the value of in-person services and will be offering them again as soon as we are able. Until then, we are committed to continuing to meet your child’s and family’s needs during this stressful time and feel very fortunate to have a telehealth platform and capabilities that allows us to do that. Teletherapy sessions provide an excellent way to maintain routines and normalcy and get continued support from your provider team while ensuring the health and safety of all during this ever-changing time filled with uncertainty.
To take part in telehealth sessions, families would simply need to download the Microsoft Teams app on their computer. Go to this link to download the app.
One of our therapists reported: “During one of my in-home appointments yesterday, a family mentioned that they have not left the house for about a week because Mom has underlying conditions. After I explained that we could continue to meet via video conference, she was thankful teletherapy was an option so that they could still have some social interaction and support for her child and family.”
Wonderland remains steadfast in our vision and commitment to providing ongoing supports and services for children and families, even when we can’t be in your home. We are here for you.
All Wonderland offices are closed until further notice.
We have also suspended all Wonderland-sponsored group activities. These closures include all Play & Learn groups, Little Wonders PEPS group, and Sharing Smiles. The start date for the Psychoeducational & Support Group for parents/caregivers at Hope RISING Clinic will be postponed.
We are grateful for your flexibility during this rapidly changing situation. We will continue closely monitoring the situation and will keep families and the community informed about any further changes to our early-intervention service delivery as the community crisis evolves.
