Therapista is mostly good. My child has worked with two therapists. One is temporary, while the primary is on maternity leave. My child receives therapy at his school and neither of us (the parents) participates in sessions, though we would love to, mainly because when either of us iswith our child during the session, he mainly wants to play with us, and does not want to participate in therapy. So in our case it is better for us not to participate but to instead follow up by email and read the notes on play activities. About once a month, one of us meets with the therapist, usually for 10 minutes to check in and discuss, and then leave so therapy can continue.

I found it rather difficult to find a therapist that could work around our schedule so our child sees a therapist at the very end of his nap, not the best time.

One 60 session, 50 minutes of therapy and 10 minutes of notes, is $120. The therapist can come to your home, school, etc.

Our childs primary therapist has a good sense of humor and personality. The temporary therapist has a different style and I often feel that she is patronizing. I do not think that is her intent but she comes across as patronizing. Shell suggest A-M, emphasizing how critical it is do A-M, and I am well aware that A-M are critical to my childs development. Its like she does not think we get it or that we are with it.

Therapista fails in the insurance billing/using good procedure codes. Therapista does not accept insurance and is not in-network in any PPO which is generally fine for us. This means you will pay for the service up front and Therapista will provide a super bill that you may submit to your insurance for reimbursement. We have a PPO that covers out-of-network providers and unlimited OT once we hit our low deductible. This being said coverage is dependent on Therapista using good and reimbursable procedure codes. I have struggled for reimbursement of this service. It would be helpful if they used a billing specialist to help with this aspect of their service this is not to say that they should accept insurance but have someone do the codes so parents/guardians/etc. can get more money back. I would pay more for their service if they could provide better coding.

We use many non-network providers for our care and are reimbursed successfully. It is only with Therapista that we have trouble with reimbursement. If other providers that do not accept insurance that practice privately can successfully get reimbursement for their clients than Therapista should be able to too. I do not want to be told by the head of Therapista that s/he is not familiar with codes.

Background on us. We are two professional parents. Our child also receives other services so we have a broad sense of what therapy is, looks like and what the expectations are of us. We also have a good sense of what works for our child. So this is to say that Therapista is not our only experience with child therapy.
