Q: What does therapy look like?
A: Therapy is offered individually and sessions last one clinical hour (50 minutes). Based on the results of the evaluation, a therapy program will be developed for your child and recommendations for frequency of therapy will be made. Children are typically seen once to twice per week and sessions are scheduled at the same time each week. A home program will be established so that you and your child can practice new skills learned in therapy.
The clinician will work with your child to address his or her identified goals in a fun and engaging way. We take into consideration your child’s interests and personality to make therapy an enjoyable experience. We work hard, but we play hard, too!
Q: What does occupational therapy look like?
A: Play is the focus – we find your child’s interests and passions and build their skills from there, widening their range of play choices and improving their performance. As we interact with them, we use a variety of tools including:
Most children enjoy coming to occupational therapy. Sometimes this takes a little while, as highly anxious children become more accustomed to the environment and they and their therapist work out a rhythm that brings out the best in that child. If your child is prone to tantrums, please know that we are used to dealing with them and will do our best to help your child to experience them less and less over time. We encourage your child to take the lead to explore and problem solve, to stretch to that “just right challenge!” with appropriate support. We model ways of you doing the same at home for the best and fastest outcomes.Together you and your therapist work out what works best for you, your child and your family. In order to be most effective, it is important to maintain a dialogue with your therapist – therapy can be very confronting at times. We can alter our approach and help you over hurdles only when we know where, when and what type of challenges they are.
Q: How can my child start receiving services at Cayman Theraplay?
A: The first step is to contact Cayman Theraplay to recieve the required intake forms. Once the intake forms and additional medical reports are returned, a consultation will be scheduled.
Consultations typically are 30-60 minutes and involve the occupational therapist or speech-language therapist, yourself and your child. At the end of your consultation, a referral request form will be completed by your therapist for you to provide to your child's pediatrician for a referral for assessment and treatment.
Once the consultation is completed, your therapist will schedule assessment times. A report review will be completed 2 weeks after the last assessment session and at that time, if treatment is warranted, you and your therapist will discuss scheduling recurring weekly sessions.
Q: How long should I expect my child to require therapy?
A: This is a hard questions for any clinician to answer as there are many variables that impact a person's progress from the child's needs, motivation, carry-over at home and diagnosis. Depending on the child, therapy services can range from 6 months to 2 years, and sometimes more. Our goal is to assist children and families in whatever way we can to enroll in therapy services for the shortest amount of time possible.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: Yes! We bill AETNA, Generali, BritCay, Cayman First and CINICO directly. For all other families, once payment has been received for services, receipts will be provided to reflect the appropriate coding for insurance submission; if expecting insurance coverage for provided services you should submit receipts to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Q: Does insurance cover therapy services provided at Cayman Theraplay?
A: Insurance coverage depends on your insurance provider, but most plans do provide coverage for occupational therapy and speech-language therapy services. If you have any questions or concerns about coverage, we recommend that you contact your health insurance provider to verify benefits.
