The Mealtime Partners Program is New Visions' core clinical program. Clinical consultations are available to parents and therapists who have attended the Mealtime Partners workshop, "On Becoming a Mealtime Partner".
Telephone consultations with Suzanne Evans Morris, Ph.D. are available to professionals and parents who have taken the workshop "Becoming a Mealtime Partner" or have completed a prior Video Consultation. Follow-Up Phone Consultations can be scheduled as needed by the parent or professional. Because of Suzanne Morris' schedule, consultations may not be available every month.
Telephone consultations are scheduled ahead of time for a 60-minute period. Billing will include actual telephone time, preparation time and a follow-up e-mail.
Video consultations with Suzanne Evans Morris, Ph.D. are available to professionals and parents who desire a more in-depth understanding of their child's feeding challenges. The Video Consultation is a prerequisite for a Phone Consultation. An initial e-mail or brief telephone call is provided at no charge to define the focus of the consultation and specific questions that the parent or professional wishes to address. The child's family sends Suzanne Morris detailed information about the child's current feeding and mealtime abilities and challenges. This includes a 30-minute video, two detailed questionnaires and a list of specific concerns and questions. Suzanne Evans Morris spends approximately 2 hours reviewing this material and developing a series of suggestions that will support the specific needs of the child and family. A one-hour Telephone or Teletherapy Feedback Consultation is scheduled with Suzanne Evans Morris to discuss her observations and recommendations. Billing includes time spent reviewing all materials, creating a series of recommendations developed with the family, and a 1-hour telephone or telepractice consultation.
A New Visions Teletherapy Session is defined as an online delivery of clinical observations, therapy services and parent coaching in the areas of mealtime, feeding and pre-speech development. Sessions are held in the child’s home and the therapist’s office, using live videoconferencing. The therapist, child and family can interact through the use of computers and a high speed Internet connection. A Video Consultation is a prerequisite for the initial Teletherapy session.
