ABOUT US

At Albers Therapy Group we have the opportunity to focus on individualizing not only our therapies but also our therapy environments to best match you and your child's needs.  Home and community based therapies result in skills and routines that are tangible, rewarding, and more easily generalized.

Direct Services

With OT services, the goal is to build independence across play, school, and daily activities (ex. dressing or at mealtimes).   

 

OTs help with:

  • Self regulation and attention, 

  • Sensory processing, 

  • Motor coordination and strength, 

  • Fine motor skills,

  • Daily life skills (ex. feeding, dressing, grooming), and handwriting or keyboarding skills. 

 

Albers Therapy Group offers direct services:

  • in client homes

  • in the community (ex. playground)

  • and virtually 

Consultation Services

Consultation with an OT is often an individually tailored service.  It can look like:

  • Parent or sibling coaching

  • Partnering with the family to help create opportunities for all members to be successfully included in family meals, special events, or simple routines.

  • Helping a family create events uniquely tailored to their child's special needs (ex. birthday)

  • Consultation with community programs to maximize accessibility 

  • Collaboration with other providers (ex. SLP, PT, LCSW, Psych, including advocates, review of evaluations, goals, and services)

Payment Options

We are a private pay clinic operating on a subscription based payment model.  Most often, clients enroll in a monthly plan of 4 or 8 60 minute therapy sessions.  

 

Most payments are processed through a client portal on our website.  This makes it easy to manage card options and to schedule make-up sessions or consultations which are included with your paid plan.

 

You can use FSA or HSA funds (or pre-tax monies deducted from a paycheck for health care expenses).  

 

We offer superbills.  Superbills are an invoice for services already received and paid, that are formatted specifically to submit to an insurance company for potential partial reimbursement.  If you choose to explore using a superbill, we suggest you:

 

1) Call your insurance provider.  Here is a quick reference sheet to guide you with things to ask.   

 

2) Share with us a formal diagnosis code.  

We can use a physician's recent referral or we can get a diagnosis code directly from you and your current medical documents.  This is important because insurance companies need a diagnosis code to justify payment for services. 

 

If you have any questions or specific requests, please do not hesitate to contact us and ask.  While this is our general service plan, we know that no one size fits all.
