One of our goals at Joy & Laughter Developmental Therapy is to be as transparent as possible during every step of your child’s therapy process. That starts with how to obtain services and your therapist will guide your through your therapy program so you know what to expect from beginning to end. If any time you have any questions or concerns about the process or what to expect next someone from our team will be happy to help. You can either call us (408)337-2727 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you or someone else concern about your child’s development? We accept referrals from the child’s parents, pediatrician or teachers. Once we receive the referral someone from our office will contact you to start the intake process.
- The first set of questions on the form will be general intake from the clinic, which consist of general patient information.
- The second set of questions on the form will gather information about your child’s history and your concerns regarding therapy.
Please complete the Intake Form with as many details as possible, the more information we receive prior to your appointment, the sooner we can start treating your child.
The purpose of a fitting call is for you to speak with a therapist and learn a little bit more about our clinic and to ask any of your clinical related questions. It is also a time for you to discuss your concerns with the therapist and for the therapist to get an idea about what we will need to be doing in therapy.
If your child has not already received and evaluation it will be an opportunity for the therapist to gather information prior to an evaluation. This will save you time and money.
If your child currently has an evaluation from another clinic, this will be an opportunity for our clinical staff to review the evaluations and plan of care from the other clinics and discuss your child’s current levels to see if a new evaluation will be needed.
Once we have done a fitting call the therapist can recommend the evaluation.
Once an evaluation has been completed, your therapist will develop a plan of care and discuss goals with you prior to getting started.
PLAN OF CARE
REVIEW OF PROGRESS
Treatment will continue after that, where the therapist will work on previous or new goals
If after discharge you continue to have concerns about your child’s development, we encourage you to submit a new referral and we can create a new care plan.
