Physical Therapy

  • What is occupational therapy for kids?
    Pediatric occupational therapy is a healthcare profession that uses sensory, motor, emotional, cognitive, and environmental strategies to help kids do the things they need to do and want to do so they can play, move, learn, and perform their best throughout the day.
  • How will OT help my child?
  • Is my kid too young/old for Kidable?
    Kidable provides occupational therapy to toddlers, adolescents, teens, and young adults. Our experienced therapists are passionate about creating individualized strategies for various ages and skill levels so your child can achieve their maximum potential.
  • Does Kidable accept my insurance?
  • How do I set up services? Do I need a physician's referral?
    You do not need a physician's referral to begin services. Though professional referrals are happily accepted, they are only required if your insurance company needs the referral to support out-of-network reimbursement (this is rare). If your PCP would like to send an OT referral, please have them fax it to 540-566-5149. The fastest way to get started with services is for the child's primary caregiver to email Dr. Lauren Vistarakula, our owner and pediatric occupational therapist. Lauren@kidabletherapy.com Lauren will be able to answer all your questions and even set up a phone call to make sure Kidable is a great fit with your family prior to setting up an evaluation. Consult calls and evaluations can also be scheduled on Kidable's client portal: kidable.janeapp.com

  • What are your office hours?
    Kidable does not have traditional office hours since therapy is typically provided in the comfort of your home. We also can meet the child at their daycare/school, within the community, or at the Kidable Clubhouse, which is primarily used for inclusive play groups. We have day and evening hours to fit your family's busy schedule. Your appointment time will vary based on your family's schedule, when your child could use the most support, and appointment availability.
  • Does my child need to receive therapy services to sign up for play groups at the Kidable Clubhouse?
    Nope! Our play groups are open to the community! The activities are designed to fun for all skill levels. The perks of Kidable's play groups include being designed and led by pediatric professionals so we can support sensory, motor, and social skills, as needed. Children without any diagnosis or social concerns are welcome to join in the play! Check out our play groups! www.kidabletherapy.com/groups
