Episodes of Care

To better serve our patients, therapists at Children’s use a philosophy called Episodes of Care. It is designed to help create a specialized treatment plan for your child. This plan helps therapists identify the goals and intensity of rehabilitative care.

You are an important part of this process. As a part of the rehabilitation team, you can help us consider several factors, including:

  • ­Your child’s needs based on his diagnosis
  • ­Goals for your child’s therapy
  • ­Amount of therapy needed
  • ­How your child progresses during therapy
  • ­Resources (e.g., availability, transportation, funding and family support)

Episodes of Care consists of four treatment paths:

  • Intensive therapy – frequent visits for a limited amount of time (three or more a week)
  • Weekly therapy – regular visits for a limited amount of time (one or two a week)
  • Periodic therapy – one or two visits per month
  • Consultative therapy – visits scheduled as needed

Once your child reaches therapy goals, he will be discharged. However, a discontinuation of therapy can occur for several reasons, including a change in your child’s medical condition, lack of parent participation and a decrease in funding source.
