Intake Assessment

  • 90-minute home or community visit session 

  • Review of records and parent interviews combined with observation of the child in the natural setting.

  • Goals are collaborative, and family-driven, and are addressed in the home, school, and/or daycare settings

  • The Joyful Connections approach involves ongoing communication between all members of the child's team (teachers, therapists, family, etc.)

  • The primary goal is to establish what strategies and supports are most effective for your child and ensure that the strategies and approaches are streamlined and universal across settings.

  • The frequency of in-person visits is determined by the family and can occur at daycare, school, or in the community.

  • Home and community visits are goal-focused and include collaboration with teachers, caregivers, and other therapists to streamline communication and advocate for optimal services and support.

What works for you? Please be open and honest about what is feasible for your family. 

A few things about home visits...

  1. Please do not concern yourself with cleaning up your house. Abundant clutter and occasional snack remnants create a most welcoming environment. 

  2. Please don't worry about being dressed and groomed. Pajamas, bedheads, and bits of leftover breakfast on the cheeks is a great look! 

  3. Be prepared to ask questions and don't hesitate to communicate openly about issues or concerns you have.
