Treatment Process

1

INTAKE INTERVIEW

The purpose is to collect basic information in order to create a client profile including contact information, birthdate, address, requested therapy services and available funding.

* One-time consultation fee.

2

ASSESSMENT

An effective therapy treatment plans starts with an assessment. This allows us to understand family goals and the child’s current functional status (including strengths and challenges) within a developmental framework to determine the appropriate treatment approach.

Assessment may include standardized assessments, functional assessments, clinical observation, and caregiver interview. This choice is guided by the child’s clinical presentation.

Caregivers are encouraged to bring along previous reports from other health professionals and school.

CUSTOMIZED THERAPY PLAN

Following the assessment, an intervention plan consisting of findings, recommendations and strategies are provided in the form of conversation with the family or in a written report.

4

TREATMENT SESSIONS

Treatment sessions are focused on developing gaps in skills as well as learning new compensatory strategies to improve function in daily activities.

Treatment sessions will be scheduled based on family goals, needs of the child and funding availability.

CONSULTATION & EDUCATION

We will communicate with school staff, caregivers, etc. as needed to promote success between multiple environments including home, school and the community.
