We can answer any questions you have and get you on the path to starting a personalized therapy program for your child. Below is a step-by-step guide of our speech and occupational therapy process at EAS.

4-Step Process

From insurance submission to communicating with your provider through authorization – our team will manage the entire process.

An SLP or an OT will provide a 1:1 evaluation. Our Therapist will engage with your child through play, observation, and conversation. This allows our Therapist to build a personalized program tailored to your child.
