Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect at our first visit?
The first session is very important for relationship building. I will meet with you and your child in your home, discuss concerns and any evaluations or reports, and begin to determine goals. We will also begin any assessment that is necessary based on your child’s communication needs. This session provides us with the preliminary information needed to collaboratively create a therapy plan.
Do you provide speech therapy services in my child's home?
Yes, my services are home-based, and I provide speech and language therapy directly to children in their home. The majority of a child's time is spent at home and with his or her family—it only makes sense that treatment occurs there as well. In this context, children make meaningful communication gains. The therapy plan is customized for each child and family.
I am interested in parent training. How do I carry over interventions between training sessions?
I teach parents simple and effective techniques to promote communication by way of everyday routines and activities (like bath time and playtime). The beauty of this model is that you don’t have to do anything extra—you simply learn how to capitalize on the things that you already do!
Do you work with other providers?
Yes. With consent from the parent, I communicate with, and provide consultation and support to, school districts, classroom staff, and home-service providers.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes. At this time, I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan, United Health Care, Unicare, Cigna & MassHealth in addition to private pay.
