Rush MyChart Instructions:
Virtual appointments are conducted through the Rush MyChart system. It is recommended that several days prior to your appointment, you take the time to download the MyRush App (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/my-rush-mobile/id1321588963 or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=edu.rush.mobile&hl=en_US&gl=US) on your mobile device (phone or I‑pad) so you can ensure that any questions you have can be answered prior to our appointment. In order for the video platform to work you must check-in to the appointment using either your mobile device or a computer while signed in. Families can sign up for MyChart at the following website https://mychart.rush.edu/mychart/Authentication/Login and can reach the MyChart help line at (312) 563‑6600 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Once you’ve signed up, there is one more step to complete. Children 12 and older must grant proxy access to their MyChart account for parents to have full access to their medical records and to access the embedded video platform. Additionally, if your child is under 12, you will need to complete proxy forms if you intend for them to independently sign into their own MyChart to access the virtual visit (this can take up to 24 hours to process once submitted). Please complete these steps several days in advance and then log into MyChart a few minutes prior to the scheduled appointment. Please use the phone number above if you encounter difficulties getting signed up for MyChart.
VIRTUAL DEVELOPMENTAL ASSESSMENTS
We are proud to offer virtual developmental assessments for children 4 and under. During this assessment process, caregivers who are concerned over their child’s development will meet virtually with a neuropsychologist over the course of two to three virtual sessions. During this time, the clinician will complete a comprehensive developmental interview and guide you through a standardized, virtual assessment via video observation. Similar to the in-person assessments, following the testing appointments, the clinician will set up a feedback session to discuss the results of the evaluation and discuss recommendations for next steps.
VIRTUAL SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY
- SLP & Parent Consultation – This time could be devoted to talking with parents about their child, concerns about their child’s communication skills and education about communication development, ideas and strategies to help improve skills in the home.
- SLP Play observation – This time could be scheduled so that the SLP can observe the parent playing with their child in their home. These clinical observations reveal present levels of functioning in areas such as play, language and speech skills and behaviors. These observations will inform the SLP of ideas and strategies that can be shared during follow up session.
- SLP & Parent coaching – This time could be scheduled so that the SLP can provide real time parent coaching while they are playing with their child in order to remind parents when and how to use strategies to improve communication skills at home.
- Speech-language therapy – The SLP can provide direct speech therapy session to children in the home
