Please bring a pair of socks, we will ask you and your child to remove your shoes when entering the therapy session.

What should I expect on my first visit?

First Visit

During your first visit you and your child will meet with one of our therapists to discuss your concerns and develop a treatment plan to address your child’s unique needs. This may be done in person at the clinic, or by teletherapy! 

Please remember to bring a copy of your insurance card, photo ID, and applicable Copay to the first visit, or send electronically to the office if receiving a teletherapy evaluation. 

What should I expect after my first visit?

Felt Alphabet

Your therapist will write up a treatment plan of care based on your concerns and assessment results conducted during the first session. Your child’s plan of care will be sent to your physician and insurance for review prior to scheduling ongoing treatment services. Once your child is able to be scheduled for ongoing treatment, the scheduling coordinator will contact you to set up a day and time that is convenient for you at your desired location, or via teletherapy.  

We encourage parents to be active participants throughout treatment, and welcome parents to join in sessions and join in play! Your therapist will make recommendations and give you home program strategies to support you and your child in achieving your goals!
