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:

- Due to our very long waitlist for most services, there is also typically a wait for an intake appointment.  You will be placed on the waitlist based on the date of your intake

- We serve clients up to the age of 18 for mental health services.  We are not able to serve clients over the age of 18 for mental health services at this time.  

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

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 phone and e-mail to get any needed any information and to send you paperwork.  We send all paperwork via Docusign which can be easily completed on your computer.  We ask that you complete your paperwork as fully as possible and return it 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 we are ready to schedule!  Please note, at this time (May 2023) 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. 

 

We will contact you via phone and e-mail to schedule your initial evaluation with your treating therapist. 

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!
