Typically, how long does a child need therapy?
With children who strictly have sensory problems, typically I provide therapy services for at least one year. However, if the diagnosis is different, treatment duration will vary. Duration also varies depending on how the child responds to therapy.
What is your new patient procedure?
Evaluations are scheduled for an hour. I interact with the child first and perform a standardized assessment and complete a sensory processing checklist. Towards the end of the hour I talk with the parents.
How long are therapy sessions?
therapy services are based on a 53 minute hour to allow time for documentation and set-up.
is there anything specific I need to bring to the evaluation?
Bring you insurance card, a list of your concerns: including behaviors your child exhibits, how they respond to activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, etc., and anything they do that you feel is not typical.
Is the parent allowed in the room during the treatment session?
I prefer the parent to be in the room during the evaluation for the child's comfort and to be able to answer any questions the parent/caregiver may have as I am evaluation the child. The parent is welcome to stay in the room during later treatment sessions as long as the child is able to participate in therapy without clinging to the parent or running to the parent to escape difficult activities.
