Preparing for Your Appointment

Gather the necessary documents. Bring the following to your first appointment:

  • Insurance Card

  • Driver’s License

  • Previous Evaluations

  • School Reports (IEPs, 504 plans, FBAs)

  • List of any medications, including vitamins, herbs and over-the-counter medicines, your child is taking.

  • Custody Agreement, if applicable

 

Arrive early. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so we can process your paperwork.

 

Before you visit us in person, we recommend that you prepare adequately so you can get the most out of your appointment with your provider.

  • Gather any documentation of the issue you’d like to discuss with the provider. For example, if you’re concerned about behaviors at school, obtain information from the teacher in writing about these issues prior to the first appointment.

  • Check your insurance coverage. Know what your co-pay will be and be prepared to pay it at the time you check in for your child’s appointment.

  • Bring payment.

  • Write down questions and concerns. There may be a lot you want to cover during your appointment, and sometimes it is easy to forget everything you want to discuss once the appointment begins. Bring a written list of the topics you would like to discuss as well as a notebook to take notes as you meet with your provider.

  • Bring toys, snacks, diapers or whatever you need to entertain and comfort your child. We do not ever expect long wait times in the waiting room, but sometimes appointments back up. Be sure you have whatever you need to soothe your child if you need to wait.

  • Help your child get emotionally prepared. Children and teens can benefit from being told by their parents what to expect at their first appointment. They usually experience less anxiety when they know what will happen—and why.

  • Please assure them we do not give "shots."

  • Keep unnecessary visitors to a minimum. Our waiting area and therapy rooms are small and can become overcrowded easily. We do not have staff on hand to babysit or watch other children/siblings.
