What kind of teens can benefit from this type of therapy?
We can help any teen who is having challenges with organization, regulation, or independence. While a specific diagnosis is not required to participate in our services, some of the common diagnoses we see are Autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, executive function disorder, Down syndrome, sensory processing differences, or intellectual disability.
Is this type of therapy only for teens?
No! Children and adults of all ages can benefit from occupational therapy. However, we focus on adolescents and young adults so that we can specialize in important skills related to transition. If you’re not sure whether your child is a good match for our practice, please schedule a free consultation call. If we’re not the best fit, we’ll be happy to refer you to someone who is!
How do I get started?
The first step in the process is to determine whether or not your child would benefit from receiving occupational therapy services. One way to determine this is by scheduling a free consultation call. Or, if you’re ready to move forward with an evaluation, you can do so here. We ask that parent(s) and/or caregiver(s) complete the intake forms prior to evaluation to ensure that we have accurate information when preparing for assessment.
Where will my child’s session take place?
We offer a wide range of service delivery models. Sessions may be provided via telehealth or in your child’s home or community. We will work together to find the best environment that meets your child’s needs and goals.
What is the cancellation policy?
If your child is unable to participate in a scheduled session, please cancel the session via email or telephone call at least 24 hours in advance. Late cancellation/no show fees total $25 and are not billable to insurance. That said, we understand that children may present with symptoms of illness on the morning of their therapy session. Parents will not be penalized for late cancellations due to illness.
How often does therapy occur?
When your child is evaluated, the occupational therapist will make a recommendation of the frequency of treatment and provide you with a general idea of the length of therapy. We will work with you to find a schedule that enables your child to succeed.
