Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have to wait for an appointment?
Give us a call! We try to accommodate schedules to get new clients started the week that they call us. This means that you will learn how to make changes right away to help your child meet their goals.
Do you have after school or weekend appointments?
Kid PT works with families to accommodate your scheduling needs.
Do you go to schools or daycares?
Kid PT provides both clinic services and services in the natural environment, such as at school or home. Daycare visits can be scheduled as regular therapy sessions or as consultative to educate all caregivers in order to best help the child.
What is the difference between Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy?
Physical therapists have expertise in the movement system. Children with gross motor skill, coordination, and balance challenges can benefit from physical therapy. Many children with learning, processing, attention, and sensory challenges have underlying movement deficits and will also greatly benefit from short-term physical therapy.
Occupational therapy helps children on a broader level with the development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, and visual motor skills that children need to function and socialize in their home, school, play, and community environments. They also work with the family as a whole to increase mindfullness and teach parents how to best guide their child through their individual challenges.
At Kid PT our physical and occupational therapists work as a team with a focus on the child’s overall development.
Do you take insurance?
We are an out of network provider. This means that families pay for services upfront and are given an invoice to submit to insurance. However, many families are able to get an in-network or gap exception due to the specialist nature of our services and are then reimbursed at the in-network level. Many families find that our level of care makes this process worth it.
