Andrew was confused. How would he get therapy on the computer? He had gotten dressed, put his shoes on, grabbed his bag, and even eaten his snack when he was asked to turn on his computer and sit down. He was told there was a therapist using a program where they could see and talk to each other. Andrew wondered why he could not see her in person because he knew Billy still went and saw Miss Jessica for his therapy. Many people needed therapy and not everyone had a Miss Jessica near them. Andrew wondered how he would do his therapy through the computer. He was told he would still play games, do puzzles, and take tests to make him stronger and do better in school. Let's read Why Is There a Person in my Computer? by Brittany Ferri to see how Andrew gets his first teletherapy session with his therapist Brittany and how it is different from other pediatric therapies.

Why Is There a Person in my Computer? by Brittany Ferri is an insightful book that gives readers glimpses of how teletherapy is done. The illustrations are colorful and they make the concept of teletherapy understandable to young readers along with the author's words. Andrew is a child who has problems when it comes to art, playing hockey and performing well at school, and through teletherapy, readers see how he improves and starts doing well. Why Is There a Person in my Computer? is useful to all therapists, counselors, parents, and educators dealing with children who require therapy and cannot get a therapist as it introduces them to teletherapy, which does not require the child to go out to meet a therapist.
