1. CONTACT US

Pediatric Therapy Specialists understands that this may be a confusing time. We know that finding the right therapist and clinic can be frustrating and tedious. We want to make sure this process is smooth and seamless from the first time you contact our clinic. Give us a call at your preferred location, or send us an email at pedtherapyspecialists@gmail.com to inquire about services and availability. Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you in getting started with therapy services.

2. COMPLETE THE GETTING STARTED FORM/PHYSICIAN REFERRAL:

Please complete the GETTING STARTED form below. Be sure to complete all required fields. You should receive a confirmation page when you have successfully submitted your form.

*In addition to this form, please email a copy of the front and back of your insurance card, and the insured’s driver’s license to intakes@pedts.com


As per our therapists’ licensure, we will also need a referral from your child’s physician in order to evaluate and treat. If your child’s physician has not already sent a copy of a referral to us, please have them fax one to your preferred location.

3. BENEFITS BREAKDOWN

Once we have received your completed form, we will verify your insurance benefits and send you a breakdown with cost estimates, visit limits, and general therapy benefits. We participate with most major private insurance companies, and offer competitive self-pay rates in the event we don’t take your insurance.

4. SCHEDULE EVALUATION

Once the Getting Started form and physician’s referral are received and reviewed, we will contact you to schedule an initial evaluation. This evaluation will provide comprehensive testing consisting of various age-appropriate activities.

5. PHONE INTERVIEW

After scheduling your evaluation, an associate will contact you approximately 1-2 weeks before the scheduled evaluation to conduct a phone interview. The purpose of this interview is to collect a comprehensive developmental history of your child so our therapists can prepare the appropriate testing prior to your evaluation. This step is required to keep the evaluation date.

6. SCHEDULE A TREATMENT

Once the evaluation is complete, your evaluating therapist will determine if your child qualifies for therapy, and will provide a plan of care. We will then work with you to schedule a standing appointment time that works for you and your family.


Once scheduled, your child will have a standing appointment time. We are always accepting new patients and look forward to helping you and your family reach your therapy goals!
