Occupational or Physical Therapy Initial Evaluation
The day of your child's evaluation please arrive on time and make yourself comfortable in our waiting room. Your evaluating therapist will meet you and your child there to provide a tour of our space to help familiarize your child to our environment. The evaluation will take up to one hour to complete. The therapist will use standardized and non-standardized tests, observation and parent/physician information to get an overall snapshot of your child's strengths and weaknesses.
Once the evaluation is completed the therapist will discuss preliminary findings and offer some recommendations. Once the insurance authorization is obtained (if applicable) and the doctor has reviewed and authorized the evaluation, we will schedule your child for a weekly appointment for therapy. Every attempt will be made to find a mutually agreeable time for the appointments. Generally therapy will be scheduled on the same day and time each week for consistency.
If you have questions or concerns as to how to explain your visit to TheraPlay Spot to your child please call for individualized support depending on the age and concerns of your child. TheraPlay Spot is a warm and friendly environment and you can reassure your child that they will have a fun and positive experience. The therapist will leave it up to you if you would like to observe your child during the evaluation. School Excused Absence slips can be provided upon request.
