How does your process work?

To get started, complete our get started form; a short questionnaire that enables us to gather information about your child before selecting a therapist.  After we review your responses, we will thoughtfully select a therapist who we feel is the best fit for your child based on your child’s needs and personality and the areas of expertise of the therapist.  You’ll have the option to include your insurance information, if you would like our billing team to check your coverage before getting started. Once completed, we’ll connect you with your child’s therapist. They will then reach out to you to schedule the first session.

What does therapy entail?

A certified speech-language pathologist, in collaboration with you, will evaluate your child and develop a customized treatment plan and goals. Our therapists will keep you up to date and informed on your child’s progress and expected treatment length. 

Our pediatric therapists are licensed, certified and hold a master’s or doctoral degree in their field. Browse our therapist bios to view the impressive areas of expertise and background of our team.

What will happen during the evaluation?

Your therapist will set up your first appointment based on your schedule and availability.  Our therapists use a variety of formal and informal assessment tools to obtain a comprehensive picture of your child and create a unique treatment plan based on your child’s individual needs. Parent communication is highly important to the TherapyWorks team. You will be fully informed and kept up to date on your child’s progress toward goals. 

How do you provide the results of the evaluation?

Your therapist will follow up with you to discuss results and recommendations for your child.  You will receive a detailed evaluation report and treatment plan from your child’s therapist.  Goals and treatment plans are measurable and trackable so you’re always aware of your child’s progress.

How long will your child need therapy?

The length of time your child will be in therapy will depend on the needs of your child and their overall goals for therapy.  Your therapist will create a detailed, customized, goal-centered treatment plan for your child and will give you periodic updates on how your child is progressing toward his or her goals.  Communication and collaboration are highly important to us. Our therapists will work with you to establish a communication plan for all professionals, teachers and caregivers that are working with your child. Ensuring that we’re all on the same page will positively impact your child’s progress. 

Does speech therapy work via teletherapy?

 

Our experienced team of pediatric speech therapists have had great success providing services via teletherapy. Older clients are able to manage technology and appointment times (easily scheduled around other activities). Our youngest clients are able to remain engaged through our interactive and motivating teletherapy tools. In addition, teletherapy provides parents with access to specialized and experienced therapists that would otherwise be unable to work with their child. If you would like to discuss your child’s specific needs, please don’t hesitate to reach out for a free phone consultation. Our team is always happy to collaborate and point you in the right direction.

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.


Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
 
Facemasks:
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
 
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
 
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.

 

Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
