Q: How do I get started?
A: Call Sora Pediatric Therapy at (763) 755-4275 to get started.
Q: How are services at Sora Pediatric Therapy different from services offered through the school district?
A: Therapy at Sora Pediatric Therapy is provided in a one-on-one (one therapist to one child) setting. Parents are encouraged to observe and participate in therapy sessions and are given individual instruction on how to continue therapy activities at home. Many children participate in therapy at Sora Pediatric Therapy in addition to receiving school-based therapy.
Sora Pediatric Therapy also evaluates and treats many children who do not meet the strict criteria needed to qualify for school-based services. Many children who do not qualify for services in the school may still benefit from therapy services.
Q: Does my child need therapy?
A: If you have any concerns regarding your child’s development, we recommend scheduling a comprehensive evaluation. This evaluation will compare your child’s abilities to those of other children his/her age. Results of the evaluation will provide you and your family with the information you need to make an informed decision about the need for services.
Q: What if my insurance does not cover therapy?
A: If you are not covered by health insurance or if your specific plan does not reimburse for therapy, private pay options are available. We have worked with many insurance plans and successfully appealed denials. We are willing to work with you to advocate for coverage of therapy services.
Q: We started therapy elsewhere. Can we transition our care to you?
A: Absolutely. Call our intake line to begin the process of transferring care.
