• For children under 6 we do recommend an articulation evaluation. For children over 6 with only one or two sound errors, the therapist will complete a brief informal articulation assessment during the initial therapy session and immediately start therapy.
  • Both languages should be supported in the presence of a language delay or disorder. The therapist will typically support English, the language of the greater community and most often the child’s current education system, during the therapy sessions. The therapist will work closely with family members so they can support their child’s other language in their home and immediate community environments.
  • We offer screenings by appointment for $20.  The screening is conducted by a certified speech language pathologist and takes about 20 minutes to complete. The therapist will assess your child’s speech and language development, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with helpful recommendations and resources.
  • Absolutely! We typically match therapists to children based on your child’s needs and the therapist’s areas of expertise. Scheduling and therapist availability are also taken into account. If you or your child don’t feel that we have found the best match for your child’s needs or personality, please let us know and we would be happy to schedule your child with another therapist that may be a better fit.
  • The length of the appointment is determined by each child’s individual needs. Appointments times can be 30, 45, or 60 minutes. Generally, if the only concern is articulation, appointments last 30 minutes.
  • The length of the evaluation depends on your child’s age and needs. For most children, a Speech and Language Evaluation usually takes about 60 minutes to complete.
  • No. Under most circumstances, the therapist can work directly off of the previous evaluation report. If the evaluation was completed more than six months prior, additional testing to update scores may be needed so the therapist can tailor the intervention program to meet your child’s current needs. Please forward any records prior to your child’s first therapy appointment so the therapist has time to review this information before they meet with your child.
  • Most children are scheduled for one to two times weekly depending on their needs. Floating appointment times are also an option for families who are unable to commit to a weekly session and who may prefer to schedule less frequently. The willingness of families to complete home programming activities also impacts the frequency and duration of the therapy sessions.
  • We encourage parents to be involved in the therapy process as long as it doesn’t interfere with the therapy session. Sometimes it is beneficial for a child to have one on one time with the therapist and have parents observe for a few minutes at the end of the session.
  • Yes. It is sometimes very helpful for us to have contact with babysitters and nannies who spend time with your child. We can provide them with information and techniques so they can better support your child during the day. Parents can remain in contact with their child’s therapist via phone and email so they can continue to receive up to date information about their child’s progress in therapy.
  • We no longer offer direct billing to insurance companies as most insurance companies do not cover speech therapy services unless related to accident, illness, injury, or autism.  High deductibles and copays led many of our families to select self-pay discounts over insurance billing options. We will provide a detailed invoice that includes billing, diagnostic codes, etc. if you would like to submit claims to your insurance company.
