Don’t forget to Book your Virtual Parent Meetings!
Parent meetings are dedicated calls to focus attention and ensure all of your questions or concerns are addressed. These calls can be used to connect with a variety of people in your child’s life, including parents, teachers, and/or other therapists. Individual clients are reminded and encouraged to schedule a consultation call every 5 sessions, at no additional cost. Additional a-la-carte calls can be added at any time.

Preparing for Your First Session
If it’s your first day with us or 5th month, new routines & new people can bring excitement and nerves. We honor each child’s feelings and aim to help them feel safe and comfortable in their own time and in their own way. To help your child prepare for their first session:
- Read the Welcome Packet together with your child
- Prepare your child’s bag together
- Check out the site map
- Look through the site photos below
We welcome caregivers to join individual sessions every week. During therapy groups, a trusted caregiver is welcomed to join the session with advance notice.
If your child is participating in a therapy group and you hope to drop off your child and he/she is feeling nervous, that is okay. It’s also okay if you are feeling nervous. New transitions can feel scary, here are some ideas to consider.
- You can stay in your car or enjoy the chairs in the barn during the therapy session
- You can ask your Therapist or Group Assistant to text you an update part way through the session the first day
- Some kids may enjoy Daniel Tiger, Season 4, Episode 12 “Grown Ups Come Back”. Here is the song from the episode.
- You can join the group session and slowly fade into the background.
If your child feels sad during therapy sessions, your therapist or group assistant will join your child, honor their feelings, and offer comfort via proximity to an adult, a walk around the session space, an activity break, storybooks, and more. If your child continues to feel sad we will text/call the parent to make a collaborative decision on what might be best for the child.
What to Wear
We recommend dry fit, long sleeve shirts, hiking pants, and non-cotton socks because they help our kids to stay dry, cool, and comfortable. Plus it helps to keep the bugs away & cuts down on the need for sunscreen and bug spray . These Amazon Affiliate links are merely suggestions. When you buy from these links, we get a very (very) small kick back (at no additional cost to you). You can also find similar items locally at Thrift Stores and between friends. We have a limited number of Treeline “Play Wild” long sleeve, dry fit shirts ($25 youth, $30 adult) available for purchase the first few weeks.
