OT Kid Works provides pediatric occupational therapy for children, birth through adolescence. Following a comprehensive evaluation a treatment plan is developed concentrating on skills needed for daily routines such as:
What ages of patients are seen at your clinic?
How can I get my child referred for therapy services?
Your child needs to be referred for therapy services by obtaining a written prescription from their primary care physician or specialist. HMO plans require prior authorization for therapies. They should be obtained by the primary care physician’s office before the evaluation can take place.
Who will pay for my child’s therapy?
Most insurance companies will pay for therapy as long as it is deemed medically necessary. Some insurances do not cover services for developmental delays. Please call our office to have the staff check with your insurance about coverage for therapy.
Can I have more than one insurance pay for services?
Yes, you can have more than one insurance company pay for services. Some clients have insurance for primary payer and Medicaid for secondary payer. Our office will bill secondary insurances for payment. The guarantor on the account will be responsible for any amount not covered by insurance company.
Payment types accepted?
We accept insurance checks, personal checks, money orders, and cash.
Hours of operation?
Monday – Thursday 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
How long will my child need therapy?
Every child is an individual; therefore, it is not possible to predict the length of time a child will need to come to therapy.
When will my child walk?
Most children walk between 10 and 18 months. Before walking occurs many things need to occur, such as balance and equilibrium reactions, muscle control and overall good muscle strength.
What can I do at home to help?
Your therapist will demonstrate and explain activities for you to do at home to reinforce activities worked on in therapy. Working together as parent, child and therapist will help reach goals.
How often will I have to come?
Again, every child is different; therefore, child and family needs should be taken into account.
Can I stay in the room with my child during therapy?
Parents and caregivers are always welcome to participate in the therapy process.
Does it hurt?
Therapy should not be painful; however, some stretches may feel uncomfortable or strange. The new activities and various positions may be challenging and cause some crying. However, every effort is made to make therapy fun and exciting, after all active participation from the child is extremely important.
Do I need a referral/prescription?
Yes, you will need a referral/prescription and possibly prior authorization, depending on your funding source.
