Every child blossoms at their own pace. Research highlights that the earlier we recognize and address disorders or delays, the brighter the outcome. If you have queries, don't hesitate to call our office for a chat with one of our therapists.
If your intuition tells you that therapy could benefit your child, reach out to us! We'll collect some basic info, understand your concerns, and set up an evaluation if needed. Most insurance companies require a physician's prescription for occupational and speech therapy, so give your child's pediatrician a ring and request a referral to FUNctional Kids Pediatric Therapy. Once we receive it, we'll send you the rest of the paperwork through our online portal. If you have questions about the referral process, we're here to help!
Before the evaluation, we'll send you some fun questionnaires to fill out, helping us understand your child's strengths and challenges. We'll also ask for a snapshot of your insurance card via our online portal. On evaluation day, we kindly request that you're available to answer therapist questions with minimal distractions.

We're all about making therapy comfy, so we come to you! Whether it's your home or your child's daycare/preschool, that's where the magic happens. If you prefer a clinic setting, we can make that happen too.
Every child's journey is unique, and the severity of challenges varies. That's why there's no one-size-fits-all answer to treatment duration. At the initial evaluation, your therapist will decide the frequency (sessions per week) and duration (in months) for your child's therapy. If you're billing insurance, the duration may depend on your insurance's authorization periods. When those periods end, insurance might require a re-evaluation or progress update for more visits.
We're currently welcoming Sanford Health Plans, Avera Health Plans, Dakotacare, SD Medicaid, and Wellmark/BCBS, Cigna, Tricare, and UnitedHealth Care Commercial Plans. We're also working on partnering with additional insurance companies and will keep you updated.
No worries! We're here to help. We can work with you and your insurance plan on an out-of-network basis. You'll pay in full at the time of service, and we'll provide you with a Super Bill for reimbursement from your insurance carrier. We offer affordable rates for self-pay clients too.
Absolutely! We accept HSA, FSA, credit & debit cards, cash, or checks. And guess what? We offer a prompt pay discount for same-day self-pay clients. If you need a sliding scale based on financial need, just let us know.
Remember, patients are responsible for all costs not covered by insurance. If a third-party payer denies therapy services, you'll be responsible for the outstanding charges. Payment (including session fees and co-pays, if applicable) is due at the time of service.
Consistency is key to progress. Your child's appointment is personalized, so if there are frequent no-shows or cancellations, we may need to adjust the schedule to accommodate other children. We'll provide our attendance policy before you start.
Fantastic! School therapy doesn't exclude private therapy. In fact, it can complement it! Here's why our private practice setting has unique perks:
One-on-one therapy means undivided attention and more practice.
Immediate evaluation and treatment, pending insurance approval.
No missed class time; appointments can be before or after school.
Instant feedback and progress updates.
We welcome children of all severities and diagnoses.
Therapy based on any child's needs, not just academics.
