As soon as you have the slightest concern or question. Children can be evaluated developmentally for any challenges or gaps in their performance and steps can be taken to help to fill those gaps at any age! In fact, babies have a wonderful place in our practice. We work every day with infants on feeding, motor, and communication challenges (communication isn’t only talking).
No. Speech and occupational therapists are able to see clients without a doctor’s prescription.
Our speech and occupational therapy is $120 per 45 minute session. While our costs are generally lower than surrounding clinics, we know therapy can be costly, which is why we are flexible in our scheduling. Many families find great benefit in receiving services weekly (this could be both speech and occupational therapy weekly, or speech one week and OT the following).
Payment is due up front, at the time of service. We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express. Many families are able to pay with their Health Savings Account or Flex Spending card. If Family Tree Therapies does not participate with your insurance company, you may receive an invoice after each session that you can submit for reimbursement yourself.
If you have an in-network insurance, Family Tree Therapies will work with you and your doctor to submit an insurance claim on your behalf. Contact our office for more information on potential insurance coverage.
Diagnosis codes can be given for disorders of communication. As a team, we have psychology services available, so the OT, SLP, and Psychology team can provide a diagnosis of Autism. Legally, an OT is not allowed to give a diagnostic code. However, if we receive a diagnostic code from your physician or psychiatrist, we can print it on your invoices. This may be helpful if you are submitting your invoices to your out of network insurance company for reimbursement.
This will vary depending upon each child’s needs and each family’s time and financial resources. Many families find great benefit in receiving services weekly.
We love families to be fully involved in the therapy process. Some children work better with their parents present, while some remain more focused with their parents out of the room. In either situation, we utilize 5-10 minutes per session to give a “wrap up” of the therapy and give carry over ideas and helpful information on things you can do at home.
Our therapy comes from a foundation of assessing the skills that are needed to build a strong academic base. Finding out what challenges are stopping your child from reaching their highest potential and figuring out how to best support it. While school works on academics (picture the apex of a triangle) we work on the base through the middle, to make sure that those academic skills are best supported. We work on things like integrating reflexes and improving auditory processing.
