  • Covid-19 Vaccination Policy

    Due to COVID-19, and in our best efforts to do all we can to flatten the curve and follow safety guidelines set out by the CDC, Emerge is requiring vaccination against COVID-19 for all positions, paid and unpaid, who may be interfacing with clients. If you have personally chosen to not receive the COVID-19 vaccination, please let us know so that we can review the level of risk and implement additional measures to keep our clients, staff, and families safe.

  • 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. Khakis/chinos, scrubs, or dark-wash jeans are acceptable pants. Please refrain from wearing distressed jeans, exercise pants, leggings, shorts, dresses, or skirts. Collared shirts or simple tops and blouses are acceptable. Please refrain from wearing low cut tops and graphic t-shirts. Only minimal jewelry, if any, should be worn; nothing that a child could potentially pull off of you. Wear shoes that can slip on and off easily. Socks are optional. Emerge is a scent/smoke free facility. Refrain from wearing perfume or scented lotions. Dress comfortably, while adhering to the above requirements.

  • 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.
