COVID-19 Update

Texarkana Therapy Center Patients and Families, 

This message is intended to inform our families about how we are addressing COVID-19 in the context of keeping children and families safe while receiving therapeutic treatment. Our first priority is to ensure the health and well being of children and families in our community.  

Information regarding COVID-19 is frequently changing. We continue to monitor the situation regularly just as you all are as well. At this time we have determined that it is in the best interest of the families we serve to continue to provide services at TTC with the following precautions.

 

Texarkana Therapy Center Precautions:

Our staff has been taking extra precautions to keep clients, families, and our staff healthy in our treatment and waiting rooms.

 

  • Each caregiver will be required to fill out a questionnaire upon arriving to determine if your child has encountered any person(s) with COVID-19.

  • Your therapist will use a fever scanner on your child's temple prior to entering a therapy treatment room. 

  • All patients and clinicians will wash hands when arriving, and prior to entering treatment spaces.

  • Hand sanitizer will be made available in the waiting area and treatment hallways.

  • Hand washing and social stories regarding personal space will become a prioritized goal for children attending therapy sessions. It is important that children learn this as a daily life skill during this time.   

  • Staff is reminding patients to avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouths during sessions.

  • Our staff is cleaning AND disinfecting frequently touched surfaces / toys during and in between treatment sessions. 

  • All toys and magazines have been removed from the front lobby to limit germs. 

  • If you would like, a therapists will escort your child from your car to their therapy session if you would like to avoid the waiting room. 

  • Our clinic is already professionally cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. An increased priority will be made to disinfect all surfaces in the clinic.

Online Therapy Sessions

 

We are currently looking into alternative forms of care including Telehealth, a virtual treatment option for your child to receive therapy at home. If you would like more information regarding this treatment option and whether this would be a viable option for your child please contact the front desk.

A child must be symptom free 24 hours before resuming therapy sessions. This includes fever (100.4 degrees or over), pink eye, lice, or diarrhea. If you should have a question regarding this policy, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Please note that during this time we will be doing our best to make accommodations for rescheduling make-up sessions.
