Preparing For Your Appointment
Before Your Pediatric Therapy Appointment
At Creighton Pediatric Therapy, we’re dedicated to providing the best possible experience for you and your family.
During your appointment, an experienced faculty therapist from the occupational therapy and physical therapy departments at Creighton University will conduct a thorough examination.
The initial evaluation will take approximately one and a half to two hours.
To schedule an appointment for occupational, physical and speech therapy, call 402.280.2200. We do require a prescription from your child’s physician to begin treatment.
Prior to your child’s first scheduled appointment, please log in to the Patient Dashboard to complete the registration paperwork. You may also arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment to complete the paperwork in our office. Please note that login credentials are provided upon scheduling.
What to Bring to Your Appointment
If you’ve made an appointment for a feeding/swallowing evaluation, bring the food your child typically eats and anything they usually use (bottle, nipple, spoon, etc.). We’ll do our best to schedule the appointment during a typical feeding time to get an accurate look at your child’s abilities.
If you’ve made an appointment for another reason, have your child wear comfortable clothes. Bring any equipment your child uses (like braces, walker, wheelchair, etc.) that would help them show off typical movement patterns. Please have your child wear socks.
