What to expect from a Parent Consultation:
Before our consultation, I will give you a form to fill out that will help you pinpoint your concerns. During our consultation, we will have a conversation about your child, and I will ask about your child’s strengths and difficulties. After the consultation, I expect that you will come away with a few ideas to try at home. If I believe your child is a candidate for an occupational therapy evaluation, I will let you know, but I will not pressure you to pursue services with me or with any other provider. If I know of a provider who would be better suited to your child’s needs than I am, I will pass that information on to you.

Free Initial Consultation:
Initial consultations usually last 15-20 minutes. This free consultation will help us determine if an occupational therapy evaluation is appropriate and if Thia is a good fit for your child and family. Initial consultations consist of two parts:
1) a confidential questionnaire, Initial Consultation Form, to be filled out and submitted to Thia, followed by
2) a phone or in-person meeting. During the initial consultation we will discuss your child’s development and your family’s concerns for your child. You can contact Thia to schedule an initial consultation by calling: (503) 345-7586 or emailing: Thia@HelpingHandsOT.org
Thia will need to complete an initial evaluation before your child begins therapy. Most evaluations take less than one hour. The price for a 30-60 minute evaluation along with a second 15-25 minute meeting to discuss the results, suggested adaptations, accommodations, and therapy recommendations is $145. You can contact Thia about scheduling an initial consultation by calling: (503) 345-7586 or emailing: Thia@HelpingHandsOT.org
If recommended, 50-minute weekly treatment sessions are $92- $115 and include 5 minutes of parent/therapist collaboration. Typically, Thia will recommend activities for you and your child to do at home between sessions. Home programming is a part of therapy services and is needed to ensure adequate progress and integration of new skills into your child’s daily activities. Thia has a lending library of therapeutic materials that you can use for fun activities at home.
You can receive a significant discount by paying for services in advance. The standard fee is $115 per session. You can save either 10% or 20% by paying in advance for either a 5- or 10-week treatment package.
