Common Questions

What kinds of problems or diagnoses do you see in children who need therapy services?

Common problems and diagnoses include Cerebral palsy, pre-maturity, muscular disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, language disorders, and Down's Syndrome, and hearing impairment. However, many children have no specific medical diagnosis but may show some concerns with a specific area of development, such as slow to develop speech or motor milestones, a feeding problem, poor handwriting or fine motor skills, or have a specific learning problem.

If I feel my child has delays or is struggling in a specific area (physical development, attention or learning, speech and language skills) what should I do?

Ideally, you should speak with your child's physician regarding your concerns. You may also contact our Center and speak directly with one of our staff members to determine if an assessment is warranted. You must obtain a physician's referral, however, prior to receiving an assessment and any ongoing treatment that is recommended.

Will my insurance cover these services?

We are providers for many commercial and state insurance plans, as well as medical assistance plans such as Medicaid. While most insurance plans have benefits for outpatient therapy services that are deemed medically necessary, not all offer such coverage, nor do all problems meet medical necessity criteria. You should check with your policy or insurance representative to determine coverage and any out-of-pocket expenses (deductibles, co-pays, etc.) for which you will be responsible.
