COVID-19 Note about appointments:
Your, and your child’s care is very important to us. Kennedy Krieger is open and continues to serve patients during the COVID-19 situation.
Please note that appointments for some services are able to be scheduled sooner than others. Our care advisors will work to get you the soonest appointment possible.
Care from the comforts of home
Our telehealth/virtual care program at Kennedy Krieger was designed so that our, patients and their families can video chat with their care team from the comfort of home or at an alternate private location – providing safety and convenience during these challenging times. During virtual visits, patients and health care providers can see, hear and talk with each other, just like traditional, in-person appointments.
If you already have an appointment, there’s no need to cancel.
Please call the clinic where you have the appointment (the number is on your appointment confirmation letter) to confirm if you would like to come in person, or change your appointment to telephone or video.
For new appointments, we will advise how the appointment will be delivered and provide easy instructions for all telephone or video appointments.
Our inpatient hospital continues to serve patients and is working hard to ensure the continued safety of our patients, families and staff members. Click here for more information about inpatient hospital admissions.

Benefits of virtual visits
During these challenging times using technology to meet with our experts for the first time or to maintain ongoing care is very important. The technology is simple and allows us to meet face-to-face while keeping our social distance.
What are the necessities for a virtual visit?
Check the simple technical requirements. Getting started is easy. You will need access to the following:
A computer, laptop or smartphone
A built in or attached camera
A build in or attached speaker
Internet or wifi connection
Kennedy Krieger Institute takes patient and family privacy and security very seriously. Therefore, we use only, HIPAA compliant, corporate videoconferencing accounts for delivery of our telehealth services. Our telehealth platforms are far more secure than individual, personal video conferencing accounts. Your provider will ask you a few safety and security questions prior to the start of the telehealth session, to further ensure that the session is secure.
To further protect your own privacy, please be sure to safeguard the telehealth appointment information that you receive from your Kennedy Krieger provider, and do not share it with others who are not part of the telehealth appointment. Our goal is for your Kennedy Krieger Institute telehealth appointment experience be private, convenient, effective and cordial.
