The health of your child and family is our first priority. We want to assure you that we will be doing our part in complying with the CDC recommendations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to provide therapy services.
These include :
- hand washing/using hand sanitizer before and after each session
- providers and staff checking their temperature daily and monitoring for symptoms
- staff avoiding unnecessary travel and large crowds
- properly disinfecting and minimizing the amount of toys/equipment brought into the session.
We also request that your child wash their hands before and after their session and that only essential family members be present during the session.
We recommend that you cancel your child’s appointment immediately if your child, or anyone they are in contact, with are showing symptoms of the virus including dry cough, fever of 100.4 or higher, respiratory distress.
Telehealth as an Option
We understand the COVID-19 pandemic has brought on a level of uncertainty and confusion that is unsettling. If you do not feel comfortable with continuing services as usual, there is an option of Telehealth.
Telehealth will allow us to conduct a physical therapy session over a video conference where we can demonstrate and explain while your child completes the exercise. This option may provide a temporary solution to prevent your child from missing out on physical therapy and potentially regressing in the skills that they’ve been working so hard on. It is our understanding that Medicaid (Florida Medicaid Plans and Title 21) is allowing Telehealth at this time. In addition, many other types of plans are looking to expand their coverage for Telehealth, so we will continue to update this as we know more. Private pay is also an option.
As the situation evolves, we will continue to monitor the information and react accordingly in order to provide your child with the best possible care.
Please let us know if you have any questions and or concerns, you can reach our office by calling (407) 905-9300.
