  • Dress Code

    Since we are working with children of all ages in a professional setting, you are expected to dress in comfortable and appropriate business casual attire. Clothing that is revealing in any manner is unacceptable.

You may wear open or closed-toed shoes. Be prepared to remove your shoes as many of our treatment spaces have mat floors; shoes are not allowed on the matts. Dress code is considered “business casual.” Please do not wear: distressed jeans, yoga pants, shorts, skirts, shirts that expose midriffs or cleavage, dangling jewelry. Emerge is a scent and smoke free environment. Please refrain from perfume, scented lotion, or other strong scents.

  • Statement of Confidentiality

    The employees, students, and volunteers of Emerge Pediatric Therapy are expected to adhere to a strict code of confidentiality. Clients are never to be discussed with persons outside of clinic staff, unless the parent has given explicit permission. If an oral release is given, a written release should be obtained as soon as possible, and maintained on file. Information about an individual child should never be discussed with another parent. Be aware that sound does travel easily within the office. Personal client information should only be discussed in private. If you need to have a detailed discussion with a parent, do not do it in the waiting room. Be cognizant of the child’s presence when giving feedback at the end of the session. Be aware that we live in a small community. If you recognize a client outside of the office do not talk to them unless they initiate conversation. Once conversation is initiated do not reference how you know them, unless they bring it up. By affixing my signature below, I verify that I have read and will adhere to this statement of confidentiality.

  • Statement of Professionalism

    Our first priority is always the quality of services provided to clients and families. While you observe the delivery of these services, it is expected that you maintain a high level of professional behavior. During your shadow shift, it is expected that you are strictly observing and that you are not interfering with any portion of the session activities, unless directly instructed to do so by your supervising therapist. Phones should be silenced and remain with your belongings. Phones may not be present in sessions. Your proximity to session activities may vary based on the client, and your supervising therapist will let you know what is preferred for any given client. When in doubt about what is expected, ask your supervising therapist. As a teaching facility, all therapists are happy to assist you. By affixing my signature below, I verify that I have read and will adhere to this statement of professionalism.
