Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my child be in therapy?
Factors like attendance, consistency of completing homework, and parental involvement play a huge part. Each child progresses at their own pace and we are happy to help them!
How do I know if my child needs therapy?
We give assessments that provide standard scores and use developmental norms to help determine if your child exhibits any delays or disorders. Early intervention plays a pivotal role in development. It’s better to address concerns early, than wait and let the gaps widen.
How much does it cost/ does insurance cover?
The cost of evaluations and sessions varies depending on your insurance. Please contact the office for more information.
How do you work with children that can’t speak?
Treatment encompasses your child as a whole taking into consideration your child’s sensory, physical, emotional and medical needs. Our goal is to improve functional communication skills in a fun and caring environment where your child can flourish.

Our therapists like to make the sessions fun by incorporating their goals into many different activities.
