Funding

Kettle Valley Kids is a private clinic, so families may pay for services directly, explore private insurance coverage, or use any of the funding options listed below (if you are eligible).

If you don’t have access to funding or extended health benefits for Occupational Therapy, please reach out to Marissa to discuss reduced rates.

OT Fees Explained

Kettle Valley Kids OT offer home, community, virtual, and in-clinic appointments.

Home or community-based sessions are billed at a slightly higher rate to accommodate for travel time, gas, and the time needed to prepare/pack/unload therapy materials and equipment.

Administrative services (i.e. reports, equipment forms, etc.) are billed at a lower rate to sessions, as they do not require cleaning or the same amount of preparation.

OT sessions require a lot of “behind the scenes” work, such as preparing for a session; setting up the space or gathering materials to bring; cleaning/sanitizing materials between clients; putting items away; and documenting information from the session. Marissa’s goal is always to customize sessions to be as enjoyable and meaningful as possible for clients, which takes a bit of preparation.

If sessions are planned to be shorter or longer (i.e. 45 min, 75 min, etc.), the cost will be pro-rated based on the adjusted length of the session. This will be determined ahead of time by the parent and therapist.

Services

In-Clinic Appointments

Our first appointment will be a meeting for Marissa to learn more about your child, including your goals and concerns. By the end of this appointment, we will make a plan of what type of assessment could work best to explore your priorities and concerns.

Younger children do not need to attend this first meeting, though some, particularly older children, may choose to join. 

Parents/caregivers are welcome to drop off/pick up or attend the sessions. There is a separate room parents are welcome to wait if their child is distracted having them in the same space.

Both assessment and intervention sessions can take place in the clinic.

Check out our home page for photos of our space and benefits of clinic/home sessions.

A consultation meeting may be booked following an assessment or a series of intervention sessions to discuss observations/results and possible recommendations. This is typically booked as a virtual meeting, though in-person can be planned if preferred.

Home or Community Appointments

Note: Home/community-based appointments are only being offered on occasional/as-needed basis due to availability/scheduling. Regular/re-occurring appointments are being offered in-clinic only.

Appointments that take place in the home or community are charged at $20 higher than in-clinic or virtual appointments. This increased rate accommodates for gas and the extra time needed to gather and prepare equipment/materials to bring to appointments.

Parents/caregivers are welcome to participate in sessions or take a break in another part of the home. For community appointments (i.e. at a playground), parents may stay or drop-off their child for the session.

**Marissa cannot drive clients in her vehicle.
