FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY CHILD NEEDS THERAPY?

All children develop at different rates and excel in different areas. Some children walk and talk early, while some don't. The best way to determine if your child needs Speech or Occupational therapy is to get them evaluated by a therapist. 

 

If you're in doubt about whether your child needs therapy, call us! We will be happy to discuss current milestones and develop an appropriate plan for your child. 

SHOULD I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING MY TODDLER IS SAYING?

It is not expected for adults to understand everything that a toddler says. Toddlers are in the process of learning language, which means that all of their communication may not always be accurate. You can help facilitate language by modeling the word they are trying to say and by providing lots of opportunities for them to practice. Toddlers are just practicing speech so we don't expect them to be perfect.

WHAT AGES DO YOU SEE?

My Turn specializes in pediatric therapy, from birth to approximately 16.

WHAT DOES AN EVALUATION CONSIST OF AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Here at My Turn we understand that traditional evaluation methods may not be the best way to evaluate the skills of your child. A comprehensive case history, observation, and parent interview are always conducted to assist with painting a true picture of your child's overall development.

 

Evaluations are scheduled for two hours.

HOW OFTEN WILL MY CHILD COME FOR THERAPY AND HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

Each child is unique in their development. The frequency and duration of therapy are determined based on the results of a comprehensive evaluation. Therapy is provided in our office, one to two times per week.
