This is often a major holdup for claiming, and it is a very simple and necessary process. The Supervising Therapist (SLP, OTR, PT) signs off with the date that they first observed the child face-to-face. Therapists should continue to observe the students periodically and log those dates as well. When the initial observation is complete, send the observation forms to MAG. No sessions can be billed before the initial observation date. Please schedule your observations as early in the IEP period as possible.
