Is Express Yourself a new daycare or school?
No. We are not a traditional daycare or childcare facility or preschool. Our therapeutic preschool program provides fun, stimulating, and effective therapy services for children suffering from Autism and Communication Disorders.
Is a referral necessary in order to begin therapy?
Physician’s referrals are not necessary for your child to begin our evaluation and therapy processes.
What are ages do you service?
Our therapy services are for children ages 2 through 6 years.
How long is each BLOOM therapeutic session?
Our intensive therapy sessions are two hours each day, five days a week.
Which insurance do you accept?
Express Yourself does not accept any form of commercial insurance or Medicaid. To make access to our therapies more affordable, we accept CareCredit and offer payment plans for qualifying families.
Do you accept Medicaid for speech therapy services?
We do not accept Medicaid for therapy services. However, our partnering company, Puzzle Piece Kids, does! A physician’s referral is required for services covered by Medicaid.
Are snacks provided during therapy?
With written consent from a parent, healthy snacks will be available for our patients throughout the day.
Do you offer occupational and physical therapy?
No. We only offer speech, language, and ABA therapies.
What are your policies for cancellation and late arrival?
Parents will receive a Policy and Procedures notice with details on late visits and cancellations.
Are your therapists certified for CPR?
All Express Yourself therapists are certified in CPR for adults, children, and infants by the American Heart Association and trained in first aid and AED.
Can my child participate in therapy when sick?
To keep everyone well and avoid spreading illnesses, sick children are not permitted to participate without a clearance letter from a medical professional.
If a child becomes sick while with us, a parent or guardian will be notified immediately, and the child must leave until better. Depending on the illness, a doctor’s note may be required before returning.
What constitutes sickness?
Green/yellow runny nose, coughing, fever, diarrhea, vomiting, and unidentified rashes qualify as illnesses. If a child has allergies that seem like cold or flu symptoms, documentation may be requested indicating the nature of the symptoms.
If a child contracts a contagious illness, such as the flu, mumps, chicken pox, pink eye, and strep throat, please notify our main office so we can look for additional cases in other children or therapists your child may have interacted with.
