What to Expect at Your First Appointment

During the first visit, the child and parent or caregiver will meet with our neurodevelopmental pediatrician and motor therapist (who will specialize in physical therapy or occupational therapy). Our specialists will conduct physical and neurologic exams and complete standard motor testing on the child.

The test results will be reviewed during the visit with the child’s caregiver. Our clinic will send a visit summary and the test results to the child's pediatrician or other referring care provider. It's up to the parents or caregiver of the child to make a copy and share the results with other providers if they choose to. 

If our providers identify a problem, we will make recommendations based on the results of the clinical evaluations. Developmental services can be accessed in a variety of ways and are tailored to each child and family's needs. We will give you information on services offered in your community.

The entire appointment will last about one hour. Our Salt Lake clinic has a café if you'd like to purchase food or drinks before or after your appointment.
