Metro Therapy Special Children's Center

Getting Started

If you think your child is in need of speech-language therapy or occupational therapy, please give us a call. Information to have on hand:

  • Relevant medical history
  • Concerns
  • Insurance Card
  • Physician’s name, phone and fax
  • Any questions for us

After our initial intake over the phone, you will want to fill out intake forms found on this page, or we can mail them to you. Please fill out the forms as completely as you can and email them to us or send them back in the preaddressed envelope. Once we receive the packet we will call to schedule an evaluation with the therapist(s).

On the day of your child’s evaluation please check in with our clinic manager who will collect any paperwork you have brought (IEP, recent testing or school reports) and notify the evaluator of your arrival. The therapist will greet you in the lobby and bring you back to one of our kid-friendly treatment rooms and/or gym for any additional questions prior to the evaluation. You will then be escorted back to the lobby to complete standardized checklists or any additional paperwork. The evaluation will consist of parent interview, standardized testing and clinical observations, and typically takes around 1 hour. Please keep in mind that if your child requires both an occupational therapy and a speech evaluation, they will be scheduled on separate days.

After the evaluation is complete, you will receive a copy of the report describing the findings and recommendations in the mail. If your child is recommended for services, we will contact you to schedule therapy at a time convenient for your family. Once set, your appointment time will remain consistent week to week.

We accept a variety of insurance policies; you may contact our office and see if your policy is accepted or contact your insurance company.
