During Covid-19 Endemic

Neurotherapeutic Pediatric Therapies is offering both in-clinic appointments and telehealth as options for services. Available in-clinic appointments are based on scheduling availability, capacity limits, and continued safety for our clients and staff.

We are following updated procedures and guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and local health departments to help keep your family members and our Neuro team safe and healthy. Please see below for details regarding in-clinic services, what to do when you are sick, arrival, and check in guidelines

In-Clinic Services

In order to keep everyone safe, we have the following requirements for all in-clinic services at this time.

  • Contact us immediately if you, your child have symptoms of illness, have been exposed to COVID-19, or if anyone in your household has a positive COVID-19 test.
  • Do not schedule or attend in-clinic visits if you have COVID-19. We will reschedule your session to telehealth or when it is safe to do so.
  • Handwashing or the use of hand sanitizer is required upon entry.
  • Medical Grade Masks are required indoors for all staff as well as clients (ages 2 and up), parents/guardians, and visitors. We will provide masks for you.**
  • Concerns over mask tolerance can be discussed with your therapist or our Medical Director, prior to your appointment/visit to our clinics.

** Even with the lifting of masking mandates for indoor public spaces, masks are still required for healthcare facilities like ours.

What to do when you/someone in your household is sick

Our waiting rooms are closed at this time. We ask for you to remain outside of the clinic or in your car when you arrive. Here is what you can expect to do/experience when checking in for your in-clinic appointments.

  • Call the receptionist to check in and answer screening questions. If no one answers, it is okay. Your therapist is expecting you and will be out shortly.
  • Please wait where you are, the therapist will meet you and escort you/your child into the building and treatment room. Only one family member/caregiver will be allowed to attend the session. Interpretive services will also be allowed if needed.
  • The therapist will complete a temperature check
  • Everyone will hand wash/sanitize before the session
  • Stay 6 feet apart from non-family members when possible
