We encourage all clients to schedule an appointment with their physician, neurologist or pediatric psychologist before seeking therapy services. During your sessions, ask for a diagnosis, prescription for services they anticipate your child will need, and for a comprehensive evaluation. Once you have these, give us a call!
If you select Look Up Therapy as your provider of choice, then we will contact your insurance to verify benefits for your child's diagnosis and prescription. Once we receive an insurance pre-authorization, we are ready to begin enrolling your child in the therapy program that's right for them.
First, we ask caregivers to complete a pre-assessment survey. The survey helps us learn from parent experiences and guide our assessment inquiries. Then we coordinate our assessment.
The assessment helps our therapists determine our clients’ current skills and establish baseline data across multiple areas.
This is an opportunity for our BCBAs, OTs and SLPs to learn about their future clients. They watch for developmental delays, language and communication skills, task completion, adaptive functioning, social interaction signals, etc.
Their goal is to prepare a comprehensive summary of opportunities for growth.
In this phase, we develop a treatment plan to outline goals for therapy based on the assessment. It indicates the current skill level and identifies milestones our therapists, clients and caregivers can work towards. We finalize the plan and therapy schedules with caregivers. Ideally, this takes place within one week of the assessment.
We submit your child's treatment plan to insurance for their official approval to begin services. (We need your support following up with insurance at this stage.)
Upon their confirmation, which may take up to three weeks, the program starts, and the client is ready to start making noticeable strides through ABA, OT or SLP therapy.
Congratulations! Your loved one is ready to begin receiving treatment with one of our highly qualified and enthusiastic certified behavioral technicians, occupational therapists or speech therapists.
We encourage caregivers to remain actively involved in the assessment process. You and your loved ones can help your child demonstrate skills or establish conditions under which a specific behavior occurs.
The assessment may take up to four (4) hours to complete. We conduct them in school, in the center, at home or daycare. We always recommend completing it where we can best observe your child's needs in action.
We work with your schedule to find the optimal time.
