As seen in:
Pediatric Occupational Therapy provides children and their families with the necessary tools to perform daily living activities more efficiently, cope with everyday stresses, and promote success at home and school.
OT helps children close the gaps in their abilities while learning new skills.
Pediatric Physical Therapy facilitates gross motor skills and refinement. Our PTs help children who are struggling to achieve their large and small motor milestones while improving the child’s ability to move around safely in their environment.
Kids engage in fun and challenging activities while working on the underlying issues affecting their gross motor skills and function.
Our Speech and Language Pathologists work with children of all ages to develop the skills required to communicate effectively throughout their daily routine.
We build articulation, interpretation, and social skills, ensuring that your kid can convey their needs and ideas at home, with friends, or at school.
Our therapists use play-based activities designed to build relationships, oftentimes in a collaborative effort with other types of therapies.
ABA Therapy simply is the scientific study of learning and behavior. Our ABA therapists can target a wide variety of skills including but not limited to academics, self-help skills, social skills, play skills, increase communication and increase/decrease target behaviors.
When working on these skills we might teach them through play; other times we might need to sit at a table, or go out into the community. Sometimes it might look different from traditional teaching, however learning is always occuring!
ABA therapy is individualized based on each child and their family’s needs.
Mealtime can be chaotic for many parents. Whether your child has difficulty with the fine motor aspects of eating, has delays in meeting feeding milestones, or is just a picky eater, our therapists have a number of techniques to assist in the process.
We work together with parents, providing strategies and tips in therapy sessions that you can use at home. Our therapists are trained to assess and treat the physical, behavioral, and emotional issues that may be troubling your child during feeding.
Many children struggle to reach their developmental milestones. Delays in learning, speech, mental, or physical abilities can be a great stress.
Our therapists work with you and your child to give them the tools to thrive.
Whether these developmental issues stem from Autism Spectrum Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Ataxia, or any other issue, our therapists are trained to evaluate and assist your child as we develop and treatment plan.
In the age of COVID-19, we’ve adapted our services to ensure that kids can still get the therapy that they need without having to run the risk of meeting in a physical location.
Teletherapy sessions are available via video call, allowing for access of each of the therapeutic services that we offer. Your child won’t have to miss out on any of the attention they need!
Our therapists have all been trained to offer the best services, ensuring that learning is still fun and engaging.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take insurance?
We work with all out-of-network insurance providers.
How do I get started?
After the initial contact is made either through our 24-hour phone service or email, FTC patient advocate will contact you within 24 hours.
She will send you the link to fill out all necessary paperwork which can be found on our website and a place to upload a copy of your insurance card front and back.
Our team will check your insurance before your first appointment so you will have a full understanding of what coverage you are entitled to.
If you don’t hear from us within 24-48 hours, you can call 973-339-0141. We will schedule your screening/evaluation.
After my initial contact with the FTC client advocate team, how long will I have to wait for an appointment?
We try to schedule you within 1 week, but depending on schedules it may take up to two weeks.
Do I need a prescription/referral from my doctor?
FTC Kids can legally treat your child without a prescription/referral; however, if we are billing insurance, they may require the referral.
Our FTC client advocate team will do everything in their power to ensure reimbursement.
We may ask families to get a referral signed by a medical doctor, nurse practitioner or psychiatrist to help the case.
What is the difference between a screening and an evaluation?
FTC Kids offers complementary screenings. This is a time where parents can express their concerns and ask questions to qualified therapists about their child’s behavior and skills.
The therapist will observe the child playing naturally and may have him/her complete some simple activities to get a quick “snapshot” of your child without formal testing.
Evaluations are required by all insurance companies for prior-authorizations or approval to start services at FTC Kids. Your insurance policy may list coverage for therapy services; however, it must be medically necessary.
The results from the evaluation will determine not only if therapy is beneficial but if it is necessary for your child’s development.
What should I expect at my first session/screening?
You will be required to bring copies of your insurance cards and all completed paperwork if not filled out online prior to session.
Parents and child will tour the facility and be introduced to the evaluating therapist.
If the child is comfortable, he/she will transition with a therapist for testing while the parent completes an interview with a patient advocate.
Insurance coverage will be reviewed and information gathered from the interview and screening will be shared with parents.
Together the parent and therapist will create a plan for next steps and following session will be scheduled.
How long does an evaluation take?
This is usually conducted over one or two 1-hour sessions where the child completes a series of developmental movements, reflex testing, visual motor testing and standardized testing.
How long should I expect to receive a finalized written report?
Evaluations are typically completed in 7 days; however, they have been known to take up to 10 days depending on the complexity and workload of the therapist.
Do you accept evaluations conducted at other locations?
We can not use a school evaluation since it is not a medical evaluation but it may be useful in treatment. Depending on your insurance we may be able to use evaluations completed within 6 months at another therapy clinic.
Do you have a waitlist?
We occasionally have waitlists for “prime time” slots (3-5pm) but we always have slots during the week if you are more flexible.
Do you have weekend and evening hours?
Yes. Depending on the therapist and availability our therapists offer Saturdays and weekly sessions until 8:00pm.
Do we have the same appointment time and therapist each week?
It is most convenient to schedule the same and time each week. If a make-up is warranted due to illness or family emergency we will do our best to reschedule or find a therapist to fill in.
Can I do more than one therapy service at your location?
FTC offers Occupational, Speech, Physical, and ABA therapy both individually and in group sessions.
Depending on the child, it may be beneficial to participate in a Speech session before or after a Physical or Occupational therapy session.
Some insurances will only reimburse one therapy session per day and these services would not be combined.
Are siblings and or parents welcome in the therapy sessions?
Parents are always welcome. We believe family participation is crucial for your child’s progress and continued success.
Due to COVID precautions and space restrictions, we would not be able to accommodate this need during popular times of day. We will happily schedule a time or day when the facility is less occupied.
Siblings are not typically involved in therapy sessions unless this family dynamic is a primary concern.
The treatment plan must include goals and objectives to address these needs and an appropriate time must be scheduled when the gym is not as populated for sibling sessions.
we look forward to hearing from you!
