We follow the CDC's physical distancing and safety guidelines with Covid-19 and continue to monitor and/or change our protocols as necessary.
Possible symptoms of Covid-19 are closely monitored and staff or clients exhibiting symptoms will not attend therapy until they have been seen by a doctor, received a negative Covid-19 test, or are no longer exhibiting symptoms.
We have implemented several changes since Covid-19 in order to keep everyone safe*:
*While we are doing everything possible to avoid the spread of illness, we cannot guarantee illness won't happen.
We continue to be mindful in carrying out treatment that will help our clients achieve school readiness and social goals. These goals will include group and social skills activities with one or more peers. Clients participating in group and social skills activities are required to wear a mask at this time.
We realize that having our staff out will impact your child's ABA therapy session. We continue to do our best to limit cancellations and/or provide as much notice as possible of an upcoming impact to ABA therapy sessions. We ask for your flexibility and understanding when these cancellations occur. The goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy.
We request that those families who have children participating in ABA therapy with us to be mindful of what they are doing away from therapy. Many of our clients under 3 years of age do not wear masks regularly and we want to avoid the spread of illness between the learners. Therefore, if you are traveling or participating in a large group social event, we may request your child get a covid test prior to returning to therapy.
As noted above, we strive to keep our facility clean and free from germs, however, this is not always possible. To keep the spread of germs at bay, the following rules apply to clients and therapists:
A client’s therapy session must be canceled if the client or therapist exhibits any of the following symptoms within 24 hours prior to the session.
- Temperature 100.4 or higher
- Persistent Cough
- Eye infection (red/itchy eyes, discharge)*
- Unusual nasal discharge
- Exhaustion (i.e., did not sleep the night before)
- Rashes (other than diaper)*
- Apparent symptoms of Covid-19 per CDC*
* For any contagious illness, we MUST be notified immediately so all visiting families can be aware of possible exposure.
*** IF A CHILD IS TOO SICK TO GO TO SCHOOL, THE CHILD IS TOO SICK TO HAVE THERAPY. ***
