CURRENTLY NO WAITLIST FOR PHYSICAL THERAPY AND ABA SERVICES!
What to Expect Upon Arrival: We strictly follow our state mandates in terms of social distancing and mask requirements. We currently require all adults and children who can tolerate them to wear masks when in our facility. We request that whenever possible, your child is accompanied by only 1 adult and no siblings. Our waiting room has been sectioned into 2 short term waiting areas if another patient is being checked in at the front desk. You and your child will be asked to complete a COVID-19 risk questionnaire and your temperature will be taken with an infrared thermometer. You will then be asked to wash hands or use hand sanitizer before the initiation of therapy. We ask that if possible, you wait in your car if you do not accompany your child to therapy. We have some families that take the bus and are not able to wait in their vehicles. If you are using our waiting room please abide by all recommended social distancing recommendations.
If COVID-19 Symptoms are Present: If you or your child has a temperature over 100.2, or any other symptoms of COVID-19, you will be asked to go home and be symptom free for 24 hours before returning. We strongly encourage you to notify your doctor's office for recommendations as to whether a COVID-19 test is recommended. If a member of your household has a fever or other symptoms of COVID-19, we request that you keep us notified and follow recommended quarantine guidelines before resuming treatment.
Employee COVID-19 Policies: All employees take their temperature and attest to COVID-19 risk assessment every day prior to seeing clients. If symptoms are present, they are not allowed to come into the office until cleared by their doctor, received a negative COVID-19 test, or completed the CDC recommended quarantine period. We error on the side of caution and appreciate your flexibility in accessing teletherapy if we have an employee stay home as a precaution for the safety of all of us. Employees wear masks or CDC/L&I approved face shields with drape at all times. We follow social distancing guidelines amongst ourselves whenever possible.
Sanitization Procedures: All high touch surfaces are sanitized between each session. Treatment materials (toys, swings, etc.) are sanitized prior to use with another child. If a surface is not able to be cleaned it is quarantined for 72 hours before being used with another child. We have hired additional staff to deep our clinic and sanitize doorknobs and other high touch surfaces through out the facility multiple times a day. We have limited the use of cloth items and if they are used, they are washed on a sanitize laundry cycle. We have boxed up most toys and reduced free access by children; therefore our treatment rooms will look a lot more bare than they have in the past. Your child will still have access to the equipment and toys they require to achieve their treatment goals!
Preschool Precautions: We have increased the size of our preschool room and decreased our class size. We spend as much time outdoors as possible. Children attending our preschool are required to wear a mask or face shield if tolerated. We have reduced the free play toys in our preschool room and have utilized spaced out play areas and plastic bins to help reduce cross contamination of toys, while still fostering the interactive nature that makes preschool purposeful. Our tables are sectioned off with tape and each child has their own chair, table space, coat hook and bin for extra clothing that is spaced out, and art box that contains individual art supplies. We have spots on the floor for standing and sitting. We incorporate lessons about germs, social distancing, hand washing, etc. into our curriculum to help children understand their importance. Given the nature of preschoolers, we know that they will not always be able follow mandated guidelines, but we feel good about the extra safety precautions we have in place.
Ongoing Monitoring: We keep up to date on all mandates and recommendations from state and federal government, health, and occupational safety departments and organizations. Procedures may change before being updated on our website. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us directly.
