The aim of therapy is to improve your child’s underlying skills to achieve more normal performance. Most insurance companies will pay for therapy if it is considered “medically necessary.” Standardized tests are used during the evaluation to assess the child’s current level of functioning. Measurable goals are devised from the child’s evaluation results. Progress is measured in sessions and at the time of re-evaluation (usually every 6 months) to objectively show progress. It is important for the services provided to be documented as occupational, physical or speech therapy, not sensory integration therapy as that is an approach to therapy.
