We are open and accepting new clients during COVID
Therapy sessions are most effectively conducted at home. For this reason (and for your convenience), we conduct all therapy sessions in your home or via teletherapy. We take a very client-directed approach with high levels of family involvement. Families are given the tools to continue therapy during the week between sessions, which ensures that we are making as much progress as possible.
Research says that "family-implemented intervention and collaborative consultation" is highly effective when working on speech and language delays. Ultimately, we want to work not just with clients directly, but with their families as well so that families can provide intervention during the week between sessions. The results last much longer and are more impactful. This may be a slight deviation from the traditional service delivery model in which speech therapists work exclusively with their clients and there is little family involvement. We strive for something different because we want you to make the most progress possible and thrive, and family cotreatment and collaboration is the best way to make this happen.
Therapy sessions are conducted either in a half-hour or hour-long format, following the clinical hour (25 minutes of direct therapy with 5 minutes of post-session discussion for the half-hour format; 50 minutes of direct therapy with 10 minutes of post-session discussion for the hour-long format). For pediatric services, parent involvement is crucial for enhanced communicative success. Sessions may be conducted following a speech-language evaluation, or a current speech-language evaluation from another therapy provider may be used. NOTE: Insurance is not being accepted at this time.
Develop a second Standard American English accent for use at work or in the community. The accent modification program is typically 12 weeks long, one hour per week in class, and short daily homework assignments are assigned between classes. The program is personalized for every participant and follows an in-depth evaluation. Each evaluation is an hour in length and is used to set the course of the individualized twelve-week program.
Communicate more effectively at work, at home and in the community with improved listening skills, empathy and socially appropriate assertiveness.
