Families FAQ

Parent FAQ’s

 

Can I sit with my child during the assessment?

We will be able to discuss this prior to your child’s assessment. We understand every parent worries about leaving their child, and that children may become anxious when separated from a parent for the assessment.  We typically suggest that children complete assessments alone. This allows us to develop a rapport with the child and reduces challenging behaviour that may occur.

 

I only require a report, can I do an assessment only?

We are able to conduct short screening tests and/or full assessments with reports.  Although it is advised, you are not obligated to continue any therapy after receiving your report.  

 

How is progress monitored?

Therapists can monitor progress in a number of ways and, we often gauge the preferred monitoring tool based on the assessment undertaken and after consulting with parents who may already have a preference.  With previous clients, we have used video integration after receiving consent from parents, written progress reports, standardised monitoring tools, and reassessment. These have allowed therapists to reflect on the child’s abilities and the efficacy of the chosen therapeutic methods.

 

Do you provide access arrangements?

Yes.  We can provide access arrangements.  Please contact us for further information

 

Can we claim for assessments and therapy using insurance?

You may be able to claim for the cost of assessments and therapy using private healthcare insurance.  It is advised that, prior to the start of any service, parents check the terms of their insurance policy, so that they know what is covered.  Payment for services is the parents’ responsibility, all payments should be made directly to BBTC. If parents wish, they can then claim this payment from their insurance company.

 

 

 

Child FAQ’s

 

How long is an assessment and,  is it scary?

Assessments vary in duration however, we will ensure that you will be informed prior to arriving.  Our therapist team endeavour to make the assessment as fun and engaging as possible, with breaks and creative activities.  You do not need to get every answer right. The assessment is there to measure both the areas you do great in any areas you may find challenging.  

 

What happens during therapy?

We love finding out what the children we work with enjoy doing the most and will incorporate this into the therapy session.   Things are much easier to remember and recall later on when they are fun and engaging and taught using a variety of mediums.

 

What happens during activity groups?

Our activity groups are a great way to meet other children and learn lots of new skills.  Some of the great places we have been to, as part of an activity session include,

  • Hotel Chocolat
  • Pizza Express
  • London Zoo
