Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my child’s speech and language skills are age appropriate?

      I am happy to offer a 30 minute complimentary phone consultation to discuss concerns about your child’s speech and language development and to determine if intervention is needed. Ultimately, a need for services will be determined by a comprehensive assessment.

 

How often will my child need therapy and how long are sessions?

      Sessions are typically 30 minutes or 60 minutes in length – the length and frequency of sessions are determined by the nature of your child’s speech and language goals and their overall needs. I leave time at the end of every session to chat with parents/caregivers about progress and strategies to try at home to promote generalization.

 

What do sessions look like?

      I’m glad you asked! Our sessions are fun, engaging, and tailored to the specific needs of your child! I use developmentally appropriate games, toys, and materials to address the goals of your child’s individual therapy plan. Some children learn best through play-based activities, while others are more successful with structured tasks. We will work together to find the best approach for your child.

 

Do you take my insurance?

      At the moment, I am out of network with all insurance plans. Many families can still request reimbursement from their insurance company by submitting the bill. Please check your insurance policy to see if this option is available for you.

 

What areas of need do you treat?

      I specialize in working with children who have speech sound disorders, language disorders and language delays. This may include difficulties with articulation, phonology, pre-linguistic skills, play development, pre-literacy and literacy skills, executive functioning, social communication, and language processing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are you doing to ensure safety during COVID-19?

      The health and safety of the families I serve are of utmost importance to me. At this time, it would be unsafe for me to visit multiple homes in one day, spreading the germs from family to family. I will provide services via HIPAA-compliant teletherapy platforms for the time being. Thank you for understanding!

Do you take my insurance?

      I am in the process of being credentialed with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, and Tufts. Sometimes the credentialing process can take a while, so until I am fully in network with those insurances, I am happy to provide a Superbill - documentation that allows families to request reimbursement from their insurance companies. Please check your insurance policy to see if this option is available for you.
