What's New?

  • TRICARE Operations Manual UpdateTRICARE dropped an update on 12/22/23. The most significant change is in the Exclusions section:   8.10.11. Services outside of the physical space of the home, clinic, office, school, or telehealth. This update was to clarify what constitutes the location and means that no services can be conducted outside of the physical space. Examples of outside the physical space would include such things as the playground (but would not include your own yard). 

  • Weather Cancellations. Weather cancellations or delays are posted on the website (, by 7am on days with inclement weather. We don’t use the same criteria as the school system (we don’t have to worry about buses, for example), so don’t assume that if schools have closed, that we are too!

  • Important Reminders. The beginning for the year is always a good time to remind you about our holiday cancellations, who to contact, and more!


  • Don't forget to create your CentralReach Parent Portal account! Check your child's progress and graphs, communicate with your therapy team, and more!  

  • Having trouble creating the account? We can help. Call the office at 571-297-4308 or email Tamera at
