Texarkana Therapy Center is dedicated to seeing children thrive and perform at their highest capabilities. It is our passion to invest in the lives and success of our patients and families. We understand it takes a village to raise a child, therefore TTC is committed to partnering with our families and community to provide the best care possible for children.
We see children from infancy to adolescence for speech, physical, and occupational therapy. Our therapists are highly trained in treating children with developmental disorders, learning disabilities, communication disorders, and developmental delays.
If you have not visited your Primary Care Physican within the past six months, please make an appointment with them to discuss your concerns. Texas and Arkansas Medicaid both require a referral from your Primary Care Physician in order to be authorized for a speech, physical and occupational therapy evaluation. Although many private insurances do not require an initial referal, we recommend consulting with your PCP before recieving an evaluation.
When arriving for your scheduled evaluation, please check-in at the front desk. If you did not receive initial intake paperwork in the mail prior to the appointment, you will be given it at time of check-in.
Parents/Guardians are recommended to attend the entirety of the scheduled evaluation. You will be asked questions regarding your child’s everyday behaviors.
At the conclusion of the evaluation, the therapist may recommend home exercises and areas of concern to work on.
After your initial visit, please allow 2-3 weeks before inquiring on results. Once the report has been completed and all insurance requirements have been met, we will then contact you regarding the results and scheduling. Please keep in mind that many insurances require physician signatures and prior authorizations before scheduling therapy.
Speech Evaluation: If you have any records of a hearing or swallowing test, we ask that you provide us with a copy.
Feeding Evaluation: If you have any records of a swallowing test, your therapist will need a copy for the evaluation. It is required that you bring the following materials:
Physical Evaluation: If you have any records of a prior surgery or procedure, we ask that you provide us with a copy.
Occupational Evaluation: If you have any records of prior behavioral or sensory testing, we ask that you provide us with a copy.
When arriving for your scheduled therapy session, please check-in at the front desk. You will be provided with a Welcome Packet that includes your copy of the Evaluation.
If your child is being potty-trained or needs assistance with using the restroom, please do not leave the center.
