Someone Told on Hammer Properties NW, INC in Bellingham

"I-CAN is a pediatric therapy center that is still open for face-to-face appointments despite having the ability to telework. Although SLP, PT, and OT are on the essential list, their services consist of routine outpatient therapies that are not critical (i.e., not acute or subacute care for hospitalized patients). They are also providing in-clinic and home-based ABA, which is NOT on the essential services list. Behavioral health is on the essential list, but behavioral health includes mental health and substance abuse treatment, which ABA is not. I-CAN claims to be following guidelines, but cleaning and distancing "when possible" is not sufficient given that they could very easily be providing these services through telehealth, as 99% of SLPs, OTs, and PTs in the area are doing. ABA is not essential and should be put on pause during the pandemic if they cannot figure out how to conduct their business remotely. They are putting children, families, themselves, and the larger community at great unnecessary risk." – Shelly Gramza, MA, CCC-SLP, PC
