Occupational therapy services

Getting Started at Kidmotion Therapy Services

Consultation
Upon contacting Kidmotion Therapy Services, you will speak with Emily Bills, MA, OTR, to discuss concerns that you have with regards to your child and to determine if an occupational therapy evaluation would be beneficial.


Evaluation
Following the phone consultation, and if an evaluation is recommended, an appointment will be made.  A parent packet will be provided to be completed prior to the evaluation.  

A referral/prescription from your child's pediatrician is necessary prior to the evaluation and therapy.  

A typical evaluation lasts approximately 2 hours during one visit. Assessment tools will be selected based on your child's age, abilities, and suspected areas of need.  


Following the evaluation, a detailed report will be drafted containing results from standardized assessments and clinical observations. Areas of strength and areas of concern will be identified.  
Once the report is complete, a consultation meeting with the parents will be arranged to review the report findings, and to discuss a treatment plan, and goals. 


Treatment
OT treatment sessions last for 50 minutes, consisting of therapeutic interaction with your child and 5-10 minutes to debrief and discuss skills with the parent at the end of the session.  

Frequency and duration of OT sessions is dependent of the identified areas of need gathered during the evaluation. 


Insurance
Kidmotion Therapy Services does not file for insurance. Paperwork will be provided for you to submit with your insurance provider.
