Assessment 

At Meridian Rehab, our therapists will provide an individualized assessment that best determines your child’s areas of strengths and areas that require growth and development. We will help to identify areas to develop that will make a difference in your child’s ability to participate and succeed in day to day living. 

OT or SLP Assessment – $460
– The initial OT or SLP Assessment is typically 1-2 hours. The report that follows includes an analysis of assessment data and an initial treatment plan with functional goals and recommendations for services moving forward. The report will also provide objective information from observational/standardized assessment, comparison to age appropriate norms, goals, and further therapy recommendations

Please note that the assessment pricing does not include therapist’s travel when booked outside of the Meridian Rehab office. All travel is billed at $115/hr for OT/SLP.

Consultation 

Our therapists can provide support to groups (e.g. an organization like a school) and individuals through a consultative model (little to no direct treatment, but coaching and supporting other adults in the child’s environment).  We believe that building the capacity of the adults in the child’s environment can be one of the most effective ways of supporting a child.  If we can help parents or caregivers sneak therapy type learning into everyday activities, we can see the child’s skills grow exponentially!  

Rates for consultation are individualized based on the child or organization’s needs.  

Treatment  

We provide individualized treatment programs. We can see you in our clinic, in your home, or at community locations (e.g. daycare, schools that allow private therapist to attend).  OT & SLP sessions are typically 45 to 60 minutes in length –but this can be customized to meet you and your child’s needs.  

At Meridian Rehab, our OTs & SLPs bill an hourly rate of $172.50 for direct treatment (i.e. a therapy session) and do not bill for most indirect costs associated with formulating and running a comprehensive therapy program. Travel and report writing is billed at $115 per hour.  This format of billing allows for easy and predictable costs related to your therapy program.

We know that excellent therapy requires time and energy spent behind the scenes to develop a strong functional program.    The ‘indirect’ work that goes on outside of the treatment sessions include:

  • Preparing a plan and activities to meet treatment goals (for each session) 
  • Communicating before / after session with parents 
  • Documentation of session (it is mandatory by our regulatory bodies that we keep documentation of the work that we do) 
  • Creating specific materials for your child (e.g. visual schedules, communication pictures, speech sound cards for home practice etc…) 
  • Emails / phone calls 
  • Communication with other team members

Groups 

Meridian Rehab offers a variety of group programs.  Group size will vary based on the children’s needs and abilities.  Groups are customized to the goals of the children involved and provide an important venue for children to practice their skills. Some of the groups that we offer include:
