New Client Process
Call us to learn more about our services and schedule an evaluation. Please complete the intake packet prior to your appointment. We will review your insurance coverage and the potential costs for treatment. For families without insurance, we do offer discounted pricing. Free consultations are available for parents who would like to talk with a therapist before scheduling an occupational or speech therapy evaluation.
A lead therapist will meet with you and your child to assess your child’s skill level and discuss your concerns & goals for treatment. The initial evaluation typically lasts about 1 hour and may include standardized testing, parent interview, and clinical observations during therapist-led activities.
Once a treatment plan has been developed, you and your therapist will work together to find a schedule that fits your family’s needs. We often see children weekly or twice weekly in our clinic and may be able to provide services at home/school/daycare if circumstances allow. We strongly value parent involvement and collaboration with school staff to maximize progress.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does my insurance cover OT and Speech Therapy?
JS Therapies is a credentialed provider with most major insurance companies in the Virgin Islands. Our billing manager can verify your benefits to determine if services are covered, if there are any session limits, and if there is a copay (typically $25-$30 per session). For families whose insurance does not cover services or who are without insurance, we have discounted pricing and financial assistance available. You can contact our Billing Manager, John, for more information or for a financial aid application.
Do you see clients in homes, schools, or daycares?
We do have some availability for working with children in their homes, schools, and daycares, depending on therapist availability and location. Our services outside of the clinic have been limited due to covid restrictions, but please contact us for the most current information about service locations.
Where are you located?
St. Croix: Our clinic is located in Suite 6 of the Antilles Building in Gallows Bay, at Island Therapy Solutions. Enter through the atrium and come upstairs: we are directly across the hall from the dental office.
Do you offer services for adults?
We do! While pediatrics is our passion, our therapists have experience treating clients throughout the lifespan with a variety of conditions. Please contact us for more information on our therapy services for adults.
Do you accept MAP/Medicaid or Medicare?
We now accept MAP of the Virgin Islands. At this time, we are unable to see Medicare clients but can refer you to another local therapy provider.
