Our Path Forward

What is our re-opening plan?

We are following all state and federal guidance to maximize the safety of our clients and staff.

We may revise this plan as new information becomes available.

 

We are Open!

  • As Cumberland County is now designated “green” according to the PA State Department of Health, we are offering services both in-person and via telehealth in the following manner:
    • New evaluations and intakes will occur in-person or by telehealth according to each family’s comfort level.
    • Treatment plans will be individually designed or updated to include a combination of in-person and telehealth visits to maximize progress toward goals while minimizing in-person visits.
    • All in-person visits will follow the policies below.

  • What if my child develops symptoms?
    • If your child presents with any symptoms listed on the CDC symptoms list for COVID-19, please call us right away. We will ask that your child remain at home until either:
      • You receive doctor’s clearance to return to regular activities OR
      • Your child’s symptoms have been improving for 72 hours AND it has been at least 10 days since initial symptoms appeared.
    • While under quarantine, you are welcome to receive telehealth services if your child feels well enough to benefit.

 

 We are still implementing all of the policies found below, in order to help protect our clients and staff.

  • Our office asks screening questions and takes your temperature prior to you entering the office. 
  • When you enter the building, we ask that you immediately wash your hands in the bathroom. We have hand sanitizer available for those who are unable to wash hands.
  • We ask that you and your child either remove shoes upon entry to the building, or change into clean, inside-only shoes. Socks must be worn if not wearing shoes.
  • Our waiting room remains closed.
  • One parent, if wearing a mask, is welcome to join the therapy session. Alternatively, we will come to your vehicle to greet your child and will bring them back to your vehicle when the session is over. Unfortunately, at this time, we are not able to permit siblings or more than one adult to join sessions.
  • Appointments are managed to allow for social distancing between clients, as well as time to disinfect in between consecutive clients. This might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointments.
  • Large equipment that cannot be immediately disinfected will only be used by one child per day, with appropriate cleaning/disinfecting occurring before its next use.  This will mean that some of the equipment that your child may be used to will not always be available to them. Play Doh, putty, crayons, or other small items used in sessions will be designated for one child only, and will be isolated and kept in separate bins for the duration of your child’s course of treatment.
  • Staff will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment for everyone’s safety.
  • Per the CDC, children over the age of 2 are encouraged to wear a cloth mask when in public. However, we understand that some of our clients may experience extreme distress wearing a mask, or that masks may present a safety concern for some children. We encourage parents to refer to the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations pertaining to children and masks to make an informed decision for their child (these may be found here: https://services.aap.org/en/pages/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-infections/masks-and-children-during-covid-19/).

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every client and family, safe in our practice. Please feel free to contact me in person and in confidence at 717-761-4754 or [email protected] Thank you for being our client.

Sincerely,
