For the convenience of students and parents, we currently offer therapy services to students at several local schools: Bayside Elementary School, Kent Island Elementary School, Matapeake Elementary School, and Matapeake Middle School. We are considering adding school-based therapy services at other QACPS schools, including Stevensville Middle School and the Matapeake Annex, so feel free to call us to ask if we can see your child at a school not listed here.
Parents seeking school-based therapy services for a child should schedule an initial appointment for the child at our main office with one of our school-based therapists. At the initial appointment, the therapist can answer questions about school-based therapy, and the child, therapist, and parent(s) can discuss whether school-based therapy is the best treatment plan. To schedule the initial appointment at our office:
If your child attends Matapeake Elementary School, Matapeake Middle School, or the Matapeake Annex, use this Matapeake Link to open a new window where you can schedule with Ann Dodge, LCPC (you can learn more about Ann here).
If your child attends Bayside Elementary School or Kent Island Elementary School, use this KIES/BES Link to open a new window where you can schedule with Coleen Lynn, LCSW-C (you can learn more about Coleen here).
If your child attends any other school, Book An Appointment here with either Ann Dodge or Coleen Lynn, and be sure answer “yes” when the scheduler asks about interest in school-based therapy.
Insurance coverage for school-based therapy is no different from insurance coverage for therapy at the office. Except when children have state medical assistance (Medicaid), we do require parents of children receiving school-based therapy to provide authorization for CBPS to charge a credit card on file for parental financial responsibilities such as copayments and deductibles—since insurers require us to collect copayments at the time of service.
