What to Expect
When coming to our early intervention clinic, you will be greeted by our warm and friendly staff working in an environment created for play and learning. We dedicate our time and energy to every meeting we have with parents, every therapy session we engage in with your child and every goal we create for our individualized programs. Our staff always provides a personal approach to each family we work with and we genuinely enjoy the work we do.
We offer a complimentary consultation to new parents so you have the opportunity to meet some of our staff and see our clinic before you decide if we are the right fit for your family. Your consultation will include a tour of our center and a meeting with a BCBA. She will answer your questions about the services we provide and explain how to get started with our therapy programs.
We will also provide you with intake forms, should you decide to begin a therapy program with our organization. These forms will assist in preparing for your child’s assessment and program development. We will then schedule an assessment and/or the start of your child’s therapy.
If you have insurance coverage that you believe will cover the expense of your child’s therapy program, you will be asked to fill out insurance forms so we can secure the authorizations required to begin the assessment and therapy.
We have included more detailed information about insurance coverage and the plans we accept on our Insurance Coverage page.
ASSESSMENT PROCESS AND BEGINNING THERAPY
Your child’s assessment will involve a meeting between you, your child and one of our supervising BCBAs. We will gain information about your child’s developmental skills through direct testing and the answers you provide to our questions.
Once the assessment is complete, your child’s individualized program goals will be set and the program materials will be created. We will then begin your child’s therapy.
We will provide you with monthly updates on your child’s progress, including mastered skills and new program goals, and we will re-evaluate your child every six months in order to update his or her developmental skill chart. This will visually demonstrate your child’s progress and help us to note specific areas of skill deficits.
