For infants under 6 months of age, you can schedule an approximately 1 hour visit to focus on medical questions, feeding needs, and development. These visits include a developmental-behavioral pediatrician, occupational therapist and speech-language pathologist. Medical, therapy and community resources needs are addressed. The goal of this visit is to answer your questions and provide guidance on supports to help your child. At the end of this visit, we will coordinate the follow-up visits based on your priorities. Some families opt to schedule interval therapy consults or medical visits and others schedule a subsequent full team visit. While we try to schedule visits when all providers are available, we will see infants when only one therapist is available. If you want all three professionals, be sure to indicate this when you schedule the visit.
For children 6 months to 4 years, we coordinate visits with a team of staff to accommodate the young children and their family. A team visit will include two consecutive appointment times. One appointment will include a medical visit with a developmental-behavioral pediatrician. Another longer appointment will include a team visit in a larger play area. During this appointment, a dietitian, occupational therapist, physical therapist and speech-language pathologist will meet with you and evaluate your child. This visit type allows for maximal information to be assessed taking into account the needs of the child. If all of our team is not available on a specific day, we make efforts to meet the individual needs of your family in subsequent visits. If you have an area of developmental priority, be sure to indicate this when you schedule the visit. Early milestones including feeding, moving, and talking are addressed. Recommendations are provided at the end of the visit with formal reports mailed to you following the visit.
