Getting started

Getting started with the Therapy Referral Process can take up to 2 to 4 weeks.  This process begins with an appointment with your physician to discuss your concerns.  After discussing concerns with your provider, a referral will be initiated to the provider of your choice for Occupation, Physical, Speech, Developmental, or Applied Behavior Analysis.

Step 1: Schedule an Appointment with your provider:

Before you come in, make sure to check with your insurance provider as to whom is in-network with your insurance plan. At this appointment, your provider will go over your concerns for therapy, and send a request to the therapy coordinator to send evaluations if applicable.

Step 2: Therapy Coordinator will send the paperwork:

The therapy coordinator will send all necessary paperwork to the provider of your choice. (Therapy Providers in Northwest Arkansas)  The therapy provider will contact you to set up an evaluation. They will contact you at the number in our NWAP records.  If you have not heard from anyone in 7-10 business days, please call our office at 479-442-7322.

Step 3: Evaluation with the Therapist

After your child’s evaluation with the therapy provider, the therapist will write up their recommendations from the evaluation.  This can take up to 1-2 weeks.  The therapist will provide you and our physicians with a copy of their recommendations (Evaluation).

Step 4: Request for Treatment

Once our Physician receives a copy of the evaluation, they will review recommendations and sign for treatment.  Please be aware, steps 1-4 must take place before we can sign for treatment. 

Ongoing Therapy Referrals

To maintain uninterrupted therapy services, patients should maintain regularly scheduled appointments with their pediatrician, including annual wellness checkups or therapy consults to address all therapy concerns.

Ongoing therapy referral requests are typically processed in 5-7 business days after your wellness or therapy consult visit.  For any questions or concerns, please call 479-442-7322.
