Important Information!!

Due to many therapy requests and the high workload of our team, no intensive therapies are planned for new families up to and including December 2022. The additional therapy capacities are currently aimed at families who live in the immediate proximity of Essen (30 km radius). Thank you for your understanding.

1. Contact form

We will work with you to develop an individual therapy plan. For data protection reasons, please do not formulate your request in too much detail.


2. We contact you

Our office usually responds within 1-3 working days. Your request will be included in the "new patients" file and you will receive further information brochures about our therapy concept.


3. Initial telephone Interview

You will have the opportunity to formulate your request in an initial phone contact with us. You can formulate your concerns and questions directly with a therapist and we have the opportunity to find out how we can best help you. You will receive another email in which an appointment for an initial telephone consultation will be suggested to you.


4. Create a therapy plan for you

If you decide to have our therapy, you will receive an anamnesis form from us, which you can send to us together with video sequences and other medical documents. Depending on the therapy program, there will also be occasional home visits during this period.
Based on the documents you provide, a non-binding cost estimate bill will be prepared for you, precisely tailored to the needs of your child. This serves - in addition to the cover letter prepared by us and an individual assessment protocol - for submission to your health insurance company.


5. Scheduling

As soon as we create a therapy program together with you, we will create a therapy period that suits you. This date varies depending on the program.


6. Therapy initiation

With a therapy program created individually for you, you already know in advance what to expect.
This also includes a follow-up period, individually tailored to your therapy performance, so that you always have the security and freedom to formulate questions and concerns (detailed information can be found in the protocol).
