Speech and Language Evaluation
Used to determine your child's strengths and areas of communicative need.
May include a parent interview, obtaining medical history, standardized testing, and observations of your child in the natural setting.
Testing may take 30-120 minutes depending on areas of concern.
Once the assessment is completed, you will receive an evaluation report that identifies areas of need and targeted goals for your child.
Speech and Language Therapy
This is where the "magic" happens! I wish I could wave a magic wand and say "your child's communication is cured!" but that's just not reality! With hard work, practice, and use of strategies, we will see results. My expectations for clients is to always work hard and we will have fun!
Treatment will be provided at your home, in a public space, and/or virtually. This will give you the opportunity to see how I conduct therapy and you can be as involved as you would like with therapy. If you can learn from what I do and practice with your child once I leave, that will often lead to faster outcomes.
1 hour sessions - 45 minutes of direct treatment, 15 minutes consultation
Payment is due at the end of each session or at the end of the month. I accept cash, check, or payments electronically.
I am an out-of-network provider and do not belong to any insurance networks, however, I encourage all families to utilize their health insurance benefits even though I am not contracted with your provider. Upon your request, I can provide you with an invoice (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance company. You may be entitled to reimbursement.
If you plan to submit an invoice to your insurance company, I strongly suggest you check first to determine whether or not you have coverage for speech and language services. It is your responsibility to determine whether or not you have coverage, as well as, if any preauthorizations are required to evaluate or treat your child.
I am happy to provide any information your insurance company needs to determine coverage such as assessment reports and progress notes.
If your child requires additional support in addition to speech and language, I work closely with other professionals that you can trust.
I would refer you and work with the following additional team members:
