Our Process

The first step to receive therapy services is to meet with us for a free intake appointment!  In this 30-minute virtual appointment we will learn about you and your child and provide you with an overview of therapy at Children's Therapy Network.  If it is a match, we will place you on our waiting list for services.  

Please note:

- At this time we are ONLY accepting intakes for interest in Parent Coaching and Speech Therapy Services.  Due to the length of current waitlist for Occupational Therapy and Mental Health, we are not adding any new clients to these wait lists at this time.  Please check back monthly for news we have opened up these waitlists.  We anticipate this to occur in March 2024.

 

While Parent Coaching is NOT a replacement for direct therapy for your child, we find that this is often an important first step in creating the family systems change which ultimately best supports many presenting concerns such as emotional or behavioral challenges, regulation difficulties, relational distress between parent and child and creating structures and routines in the home that work for YOUR child.  

- We are not a Medicaid Provider (i.e. Katie Beckett, MA, Badgercare).  We are happy to do an intake with you, however, we will not be able to use this form of funding for services.  We do accept CLTS and CCS funding

Pre-Scheduling and Paperwork

In order to begin receiving services, we require our intake paperwork be completed and returned. 

 

A few weeks before we are ready to schedule, we will contact you via e-mail to confirm your interest in services and send paperwork.  We send all paperwork through our Patient Portal which can be easily completed on your computer, phone or tablet.  We ask that you complete your paperwork as fully as possible and return in promptly.  This ensures that we can provide an effective evaluation experience for your family.    

Further insurance and funding information can be found here.

Scheduling

Once we have received the required registration materials and have an appropriate opening, we are ready to schedule!  Please note, at this time (February 2024) our wait lists are long.  We are a small therapy clinic with a high standard of care.  We are doing everything in our power to serve clients effectively in order to decrease wait times.  Please check out the rest of our site for "while You Wait" services and other training and support to get you started. 

Initial Evaluative Sessions

 

  • Your child's first 2-3 appointments are evaluative sessions in which we establish goals and a treatment plan.
     

  • Depending on the type of service you are receiving, you and your therapist will develop a treatment plan focused on your areas of concern.
     

  • During all evaluative sessions the parents are present.
     

  • Evaluative sessions will be a combination of standardized testing, parent/child interview, structured observation and observation of parent/child interactions.

 

Following these, you are now part of the CTN family! Welcome!
