Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a referral to begin services?

No. A referral is not required to get started with services. In the state of Texas, a physical therapist can evaluate and treat for 10 business days without a referral. If services are expected to extend past 10 business days, Milestones At Play will reach out to your primary care provider and obtain a referral for you. 

Do you accept insurance? 

No. Our goal to help your child be their unique self without limits, especially without limitations placed by insurance providers regarding number of visits and when those visits can be utilized.  As an out-of-network provider there are no requirements to qualify for therapy, waitlists, prior authorizations, or session caps. All costs are known upfront; those unexpected bills months after rendered services won't happen here!

We do not accept insurance, however can take HSA/FSA as payment. We will create a superbill or invoice upon request if you wish to submit for reimbursement through your insurance however reimbursement is not guaranteed.

How long will it take to achieve my goals?

It depends. For more wellness based preventative care, typically, we see families for approximately 2-4 sessions. In some cases, with musculoskeletal concerns and/or gross motor delay with a co-occurring medical diagnosis, the length and frequency of services can vary. We individually create care plans and frequency of services to meet the needs of each child and the family's values. When families are committed to the process, we usually see steady improvement. Families who get the best results are those who work diligently and patiently with their child daily and focus on purposeful play and home exercise strategies — change is hard and progress is rewarding! If there is a functional plateau or if the situation worsens, we refer to another provider either in addition to our services or instead of our services.

What can I expect at the evaluation? 

This is a one-on-one, in-depth evaluation consisting of an age-appropriate analysis of posture, balance and coordination, flexibility, strength, mobility skills, transitional movements, quality of movements, motor planning, gait/walking quality, and higher-level gross motor skills, if appropriate. You will receive a written report with observational and standardized results outlining your child's strengths and areas that could be improved with physical therapy, demonstration and education on purposeful play activities specific to your child and home, a detailed home exercise program complete with pictures and videos specific to your child and their gross motor goals, a list of developmentally appropriate toys specific to your child and their goals, and ongoing concierge support via phone and/email to ensure success.

What is a pediatric physical therapy?

Pediatric physical therapy helps children improve their movement and function. More specifically, pediatric physical therapy helps children improve their posture, strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and motor planning to reach their developmental goals and achieve functional independence at home and in the community. Disorders that impact a child's motor development can be orthopedic, neurological, and genetic and are often related to other medical conditions but may also occur without a known cause.
