COVID-19 Policy


What to expect for your in-office appointment.

You understand that by coming to the office, you are assuming the risk of exposure to the coronavirus (or other public health risk). If you do not consent to assuming this risk, please notify your provider to postpone your in-person appointment to a later date. You also have the right to discontinue your session for any reason.


  • Please arrange for siblings to remain home. If this is not possible, please notify the office in advance.

  • Please contact your provider to reschedule if, within 2 weeks before your scheduled appointment, anyone in your home has been diagnosed with COVID-19, experienced symptoms (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea) or cared for anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 (other than healthcare professionals working in patient care). Appointments may be rescheduled after 2 weeks if there have been no symptoms during the preceding 72 hours.

  • Clients are to call the office phone number and wait in your car until notified to come into the clinic, OR someone comes to the vehicle to get your child.

  • The waiting room will remain closed. The bathroom will be open to clients to wash their hands.

    • Please note: if you are scheduled for a longer appointment such as a psychological evaluation, depending on the independence level of your child, you may be asked to complete paperwork in your car rather than the waiting room. Please notify the office if you are unable to stay in your car for an extended period of time for any reason so that we can work with you to provide an alternative waiting area.  

  • All adults are asked to wear a mask. Disposable masks are available if needed.

  • Providers will wear a mask in all common areas. To comply with standardized procedures, providers may remove their mask while administering assessments. A 6-foot social distance will be attempted but may not be possible in all situations, especially during assessments of younger children.

  • Providers will screen temperatures for anyone entering the clinic. If any temperatures exceed 99.9 degrees, the appointment will be rescheduled. (Providers’ temperatures are also screened upon arrival to the clinic.)

  • Providers have the discretion to discontinue assessment appointment(s) if the child’s/family’s or provider’s health and safety are at increased risk due to unforeseen difficulty complying with these listed procedures. In these circumstances, providers may choose to postpone assessment session(s), utilize alternative assessment methods, and/or determine results are inconclusive or provisional.
