Now offering Teletherapy
Kidsplay began seeing children only via teletherapy on March 26, 2020. We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to this new way of treatment. Beginning May 4, we will have the option to receive teletherapy or in-clinic services for new and existing clients.
COVID Safety Procedure
We will meet the families in the waiting room or right outside our doors.
We bring the child back for a temperature check and hand washing.
We will provide therapy on a safe, caring and encouraging environment.
After therapy, we will meet the parent on the porch and discuss what happened during the session.
COVID Safety FAQs
To ensure your child’s safety, we are asking the parents to wait outside during therapy. Prior to entering Kidslay, your child will receive a simple temperature check and and your child will be asked to wash his/her hands with assistance as needed. Our therapist will wear masks when possible and will handwash in between each child. Our door knobs and surfaces will be sanatized throughout the day. In addition, each child will be seen in his/her own individual space and we will have limited children in the facility as we anticipate a large number of families will continue with teletherapy.
Depending on your insurance, you will have the option
to start teletherapy services or in-person services.
At your scheduled appointment time, your therapist will send you a link either through your text or email. You will click on the link, sign the consent, then allow access to your microphone and camera. It is very simple. All you need is internet and a phone, laptop, or computer with a camera and microphone. Once the therapist is connected with you, she will work with you and your child to determine the best therapeutic intervention to help your child reach his/her goals.
We have had great response to teletherapy so far. While it might not be the best solution for all children, we have found that the majority of children are making improvements and responding well to teletherapy. One parent expressed, “I really did not think teletherapy would work. However, every Wednesday my son gets so excited because his therapist is going to call him!”
Social stories can ease anxiety that some children may feel to new or different situations. Here are some social stories that may help your child.

Absolutely! Some insurances require parental involvement and some parents choose to come back for various reasons. We just ask that the parents where a mask and stay 6 feet away from the therapist when possible.
