Frequently Asked Questions
How long are treatment sessions?
This is dependent and individual to each child. Some factors to consider are insurance, as well as professional recommendations.
How often will my child have therapy?
This is recommended on each child's plan of care. Typically, we recommend therapy from 1 session weekly, up to 3 sessions weekly; however, this may fluctuate and is dependent on the individual child's needs.
Where will therapy take place?
You pick! Therapy takes place in the home, school, daycare, behavioral clinic, or outside! The SLP may make suggestions if a specific place is determined to be more distracting than others. The goal would be to limit distractions during this time.
I sent in the required paperwork. When will therapy start?
Once the evaluation has been scheduled, typically it is a minimum of two weeks from that date, however, it can fluctuate. A few factors to consider are a write-up of evaluation and pediatrician approval, as well as the processing time for insurance (if used) to approve the initiation of therapy services.
Here's what our families say about their overall experience collaborating with Speak 2 Me:
"I can not say enough great things about Speak 2 Me! From the beginning (2 plus years ago) Stephanie has helped my son tremendously. She took the time to explain to me what my son needed, the goals we set for him to achieve and always reassured me when I had any questions. The team is very informative and teaches you ways you can work on your goals at home as well after your sessions. My son went from barely talking to now speaking 4-5 word sentences. We can't thank you enough!" - Priscella, Mom of 4-year-old boy
"Myself and my daughter are having a wonderful experience working with Speak 2 Me Therapy. The staff is incredibly welcoming, supportive, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this business to others." - Latoya, Mom of 5-year-old girl
"My 3 year old son has been in speech therapy with Speak 2 Me for the past ten months and it has been a great experience working with this company from the start. I was having a bit of difficulty finding a speech therapist that could provide in home therapy, but as soon as I reached out to Stephanie she was able to sign us up and get us started right away. Our therapist, Cassidy, is a wonderful and professional young lady. It has been a pleasure every time she comes to our house for therapy services and we have seen great improvement in our son’s speech. He wasn’t saying much at all when we first started, but he has been steadily progressing thanks to Cassidy and Speak 2 Me Speech Therapy!!" - Danielle, Mom of 3-year-old boy
