When you call Kidspeak (763-416-9313), many times you will reach our answering service. That is because we are out doing what we love, treating children! Your call will be returned within 24 hours by one of our warm and friendly therapists who will guide you through the intake process. You will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and learn all the ways in which we can provide services to your child.
If we feel an evaluation or therapy is recommended, our therapist will guide you through the intake paperwork process. Kidspeak’s initial paperwork can be found on our website and either returned via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (763-416-4530).
It is also appreciated that you email, fax or give the therapist at the initial evaluation any paperwork (i.e. IEPs, evaluation, progress reports etc.) that you may have for your child from other facilities.
Once all the necessary paperwork is returned, an evaluation will be scheduled.
The initial appointment usually takes place in your home and will begin with a brief consultation with the treating therapist. This provides you an opportunity to express concerns and ask questions. Following this meeting, the therapist will begin the evaluation process which includes standardized assessments and clinical observation of your child. We want your child to be comfortable and have fun! Our therapists use games, toys and other activities to engage your child during the evaluation. An evaluation typically takes 1-2 one hour sessions for the therapist to complete. At that time, the therapist will make recommendations. You will receive a copy of the evaluation report. If therapy is recommended, ongoing appointments will be scheduled at this time.
Fabulous therapists!!!!Jodi S.
