Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Does NTS offer free consultation?
A. One of our therapy staff would love to discuss your child's need with you, free of charge. Tours of the NTS facilities are also available.
Q. Does NTS accept payment through my insurance company?
A. NTS is in many insurance networks and accepts most insurance plans. Our capable office staff is able to work directly with your insurance for the cost of service.
Q. Is it possible to have a session with two therapists simultaneously?
A. Yes! Co-treatments are available with OT/PT, PT/ST, and OT/ST. Many children are more verbal with movements and benefit from co-treatment with ST. Children can perform ADLs in standing with co-treatment of OT and PT.
Q. Are parents involved with the therapy sessions?
A. Yes! Parents can be present in the session and interact with child and therapist. At other times, it is more therapeutic for the parents to observe through a window. All parents are educated in ways to carryover achievements made within the session.
Q. My child goes to school all day. Do you have after school or before school sessions?
A. Our hours of operation are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM. This does allow for before or after school therapy times, which are very popular. If after school slots are needed but are unavailable, we suggest to begin therapy and we will gladly put your name on the waiting list and the first available after school slot will be your priority.
Q. Is my child too young for therapy?
A. Children are motivated to move. If seen early in their development, therapy can help them move appropriately, curb improper patterns, decrease possible tightness and facilitate coordinated movements. They say that it takes twice as long to unlearn an improper movement pattern as it does to learn correct movement.
