How do you determine what treatment my child needs?

Before we would be able to provide treatment for your child, we would need specific medical and developmental information in order to establish a plan for treatment. Generally, our intake procedures require either an initial consultation or a full evaluation to determine which areas of concern need to be addressed, and how best to meet these needs.

Alternately, if your child already has a current occupational therapy evaluation report complete with test results and goals, then we would be able to provide treatment without further testing
