What is the process for getting my child started in therapy?

1) Contact me! Feel free to call, email, or use the contact button at the top right of the website.  

2) If using insurance, I will verify benefits and coverage for your specific plan.

3) I will contact your child's pediatrician for a signed order for speech therapy.

4) I will send you the intake paperwork via a secure online portal for you to sign electronically and submit back to me.

5) Once those are done, I will contact you to set up an evaluation at my office.

6) The evaluation will be completed and if your child qualifies, a treatment plan will be created with goals for therapy.

7) Therapy begins!


What is involved in an evaluation?

1) A standardized assessment will be completed by me, a certified speech-language pathologist.

2) In addition, other informal assessments such as a language sample, oral mechanism exam, or intelligibility rating may be completed.

3) Parent interview to understand your concerns and goals for therapy to develop a plan together.
