Services We Offer

A child's initial evaluation and therapy appointments are typically scheduled by our front desk personnel. Evaluations and therapy appointments are scheduled according to therapist availability, although we do try to make appointment times that are available at your convenience.

Attendance Policy: 

We expect our patients to attend all of their scheduled therapy sessions.  If your child is unable to attend a session, please let us know as soon as possible. 

 Lateness/Tardiness Policy:  

      We expect all of our patients to be on time to their therapy session.  If you arrive at our clinic late, we will only be able to work with your child until the time your session was regularly scheduled to end.  We will not be able to run over that scheduled time, as we schedule therapy appointments back to back.

If you know that you will be late, please notify the front office
(352-368-7728) as soon as possible.
  • If a patient continuously makes un-excused “late cancellations” and/or is consistently tardy to their appointments, they will be removed from our active caseload and that time slot will be offered to the next person on our waiting list.
  • If a patient misses three consecutive therapy appointments without prior notification or response to our attempts to contact the caregiver, the patient will be removed from our active caseload and that time slot will be offered to the next person on our waiting list
 Make-up/Supplemental Therapy Appointments  
When a therapist has a cancellation, we will try to schedule either “make-up” appointment or supplemental therapy sessions.  If you have to cancel your child’s scheduled weekly appointment, we will attempt to contact you if another opening is available so that your child can make-up their session. Additionally, it may be recommended that your child receive therapy services more frequently than one time a week.  If we are not initially able to accommodate your schedule to provide additional services, we can attempt to schedule supplemental therapy as cancellations arise.  Additional therapy services must be approved by your insurance provider.

 What happens during an initial evaluation?

  • Review of medical history and previous testing (i.e. developmental, neurological, psychological, etc.)
  • Review of school notes/plans (IEP)
  • Evaluation using appropriate protocols
  • Brief overview of testing results

After the initial evaluation, a written report is completed and sent to the child's parents and the referring physician. Additional reports can be sent to other facilities if requested. 

What happens during a treatment/therapy session?

A child's therapy sessions are typically scheduled with one of our therapists either at the initial evaluation or after the written report has been completed. Therapy sessions can occur 1 to 5 times weekly for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the child's needs and the therapist's availability. Intervention includes regularly scheduled therapy times, parent counseling, and consultation with school and other therapy settings.
