Early intervention is critical in an infant and toddler’s learning of age appropriate development, especially in children demonstrating some form of delay in early childhood development. The sooner the child is in front of licensed professionals, the more likely they are to learn, grow and thrive. Early intervention can include one, some or all of the following specialties: Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, and Feeding Therapy. The goal in each of these therapies is to promote learning and advancement in order to acquire age appropriate skills.
Q: What is the difference between therapy at TEAM 4 Kids versus the AZEIP program?
A: TEAM 4 Kids provides direct therapy with a licensed therapist that is an expert in the treatment your child needs. At early intervention programs your child will be assigned to a team lead that will coach you as a parent in order to treat your child. This team lead may or may not specialize in the area in which your child needs help. At the end of every session at TEAM 4 Kids you will consult with your child’s therapist. The therapist will go over home programs to help your child at home and answer any questions you may have.
Q: What ages do you see?
A: We treat all ages from birth to over 21. Unlike other programs, your child will not age out of our services on their 3rd birthday.
Q: Does insurance cover therapy for my child?
A: Most times insurance will cover services at TEAM 4 Kids. It is always a good idea to call your insurance company to discuss your benefits.
Q: Am I required to use AZEIP Services?
A: No! Although AZEIP can be a good resource many families choose to bypass AZEIP and seek clinic based services. These families are seeing faster response times to get started, more interventions across multiple disciplines and rapid results.
Q: How quickly can I get an appointment?
A: We can get an evaluation scheduled within 1 week.
Q: My child is seen 1 time per week for early intervention. How often will they be seen at TEAM 4 Kids?
A: The evaluating therapist will decide how many times per week your child will need to come to therapy. Most children make the fastest progress when they are seen 2-3 times per week.
