SPEECH THERAPY

Speech therapy on a convenient online teletherapy platform for school-aged children. 

WHAT WE TREAT

We offer speech therapy evaluations and treatment for select speech and language concerns for older children including:

Articulation

Difficulty producing specific speech sounds expected for age. Common sound errors include: K, G, R, L, TH, lisp.

Phonological Disorders

Difficulty producing an entire group of sounds that make it difficult to understand child. (e.g. dropping the last sound, reducing consonant blends)

Language 

Concerns with a variety of aspects of expressive/receptive language (e.g. grammar, comprehension, vocabulary)

WHY CHOOSE PRIVATE SPEECH THERAPY?

Many children are eligible to receive speech therapy services from a speech-language pathologist at their local school or health care facility. However, there are several reasons that parents choose to seek private speech therapy instead of or in addition to these services:

  • Qualifying for school-based services can be a long process (often 2 months or more) with many meetings. Some parents want to get the ball rolling with therapy sooner.

  • Students are often seen in large groups at school. Private therapy allows for 1:1 individualized sessions that lead to faster progress.

  • Students must demonstrate a significant disorder AND that disorder needs to have an impact on their academic achievement. Often, kids with mild speech and language concerns do not meet the eligibility criteria for school-based services. 

  • Our therapy is private pay only. What we are able to treat and how often is dependent on the child's/family's needs and not on insurance reimbursement and visit limits or school eligibility. 

THERAPY TIMES THAT WORK WITH YOUR SCHEDULE

We offer evaluation and therapy services via a 100% online teletherapy platform. This platform is interactive and motivating for children and promotes increased engagement and progress. Most kids are able to navigate therapy sessions independently, some younger kids may additional support from a parent.

Save time and money! No need to stop what you are doing, load everybody up into the car, and drive to a clinic for your therapy sessions. Just log onto a computer and set up your child in a quiet space for them to focus. It's convenient, effective, and easy. Most families have better attendance and improved therapy outcomes due to less cancelled sessions. 

We offer therapy times before and after school and Saturday! We provide convenient online scheduling of evaluations and therapy sessions via our client portal. It's easy to keep track of upcoming sessions and reschedule for a time that works for you if needed. Choose to receive appointment reminders so you never miss a session.

If you have any concerns about your child’s speech or language and are not sure if you should be worried or not,
