Our goal at Early Start Therapy is to keep parents informed at every point in their child’s care. For this reason, we have prepared a brief overview of what you can expect from the services we will provide:

 

 

First Session

  • During the first session after your child’s initial evaluation, their therapist will go over the evaluation report and goals in case you have any questions.

  • Your child's therapist will then review the session’s objectives and provide strategies that will help to develop your child’s skills and your knowledge of how to encourage those skills outside of the session.

  • Your child's therapist will use these strategies while working with your child during the session and may encourage you to practice them as well. They will also provide you with a plan or activity to practice at home before the next session.

 

 

 

Follow-up Sessions

 

  • You and your child's therapist will review the strategies provided from the previous session in order to identify how your practice went and how your child responded to the strategies.

  • You and your child's therapist will then build on any new knowledge or skills by developing additional strategies or by modifying strategies that you have practiced before.

  • Your child's therapist will again use these strategies while working with your child and encourage you to practice them as well.  They will then provide you with a new plan or activity to practice at home, and may also continue or modify a previous plan or activity, depending on your priorities and your child’s needs.
