At Connect the Dots Pediatric Therapy, our team of therapists and professionals strives to create an environment that children and their families will enjoy and feel comfortable with during therapy. Our occupational, physical and speech therapists are continually required to attend courses and research treatment options so they can provide therapy programs that will work in the clinic, as well as home-based strategies.
Things you should know about therapy
The therapies we offer require commitment to be successful. Attendance at sessions is important as is following up at home with home exercises. When you enter therapy it is helpful to remember what it was that made you pick up the phone looking for help. If this reason is important enough to you and your child, it should be a short-term priority with a result in sight that will help your child.
If you do not feel that therapy is as important or more so than other events that might pop up such as sports or dance, etc., it may not be the right time for therapy. Your commitment to the scheduled appointments is key in achieving the goals of therapy. Repeatedly missing appointments will result in your child being removed from the schedule.
For families with siblings who are in need of services, we prefer to focus on the needs of one child at a time. This means that we will only schedule one sibling at a time in a discipline. This allows a short-term focus on the individual needs of a child while reducing the amount of home exercises the parents are responsible for helping the children with between sessions. While the therapy will be directed at one child, parents and caregivers will learn tips and skills that can be transferred into helping other children in the home. If you have questions, please ask an Intake Coordinator.
