What to bring to your first appointment:
Any reports that might be relevant (ie. report cards or previous therapy or physician notes)
A variety of foods or fluids that you want the therapist to observe
Any school work that would demonstrate areas of difficulty (printing, colouring pages, notes from teachers)
Our initial appointment and follow ups are typically 1 hour long (45 min direct treatment with 15 min parent education/charting).
In our first appointment, we will review consent information and get a detailed history of the issue and create goals for the following therapy visits. We are happy to work with you on a consultative basis or on a regular basis. We have seen the most success has been with a consistent schedule of therapy visits.
We also can provide a report for schools if requested (for additional costs).
Your appointment time has been specifically booked for you. If you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment, please be advised that all appointment cancellations require at least 48 hours notice.
We value our patient’s time and want to ensure that those in need of our services can access any schedule openings with fair notice. For this reason, appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours notice will be subject to a cancellation fee of $80 (which can be used as a credit towards your next visit).
