The Intake Process at Small Steps

The first step in the intake process is to contact us and we will organise a time to meet with you and discuss your needs and what we can offer. Your child does not need to attend this interview and it takes about 90 minutes.

We will talk about whether you and/or your child needs a set block of therapy or ongoing sessions, costs and payment methods.

Depending on availability we can then book your next sessions. 

Sometimes it is most valuable for parents to attend for a couple of sessions before the child comes. This helps to set up the therapy for success. When dealing with the child - the family is the greatest influencer in the process. We work together as a team so it is important to know how you can best support your child during therapy.

Following this process your child or family will be able to start therapy as soon as a place is available, there may be a waiting period.
