While we are not in-network with any health insurance, our prices are similar or less then many plans' co-pays.


You may be able to get partial reimbursement for what you pay us through your out-of-network benefits or in-network benefits through a Network Deficiency/Coverage Gap Exception/Network Inadequacy (showing there is limitation with in-network providers in the area, ex. long wait lists etc.). Please ask us for the insurance codes that apply to your services so you can inquire with your insurance carrier about your benefits before starting with us.

A discount is given when 2 or more children are seen back-to-back at the same location even if they are not related (e.g. at the same childcare center). You will also earn free sessions when you refer family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. to us

Sessions are 30, 45, or 60 minutes long and can occur every other week, weekly, or multiple times per week depending on your child’s age, what they are working on, etc. Sessions are 1:1 and tailored to your child’s needs and personality. 

 When Should I Contact a Speech Therapist? 

Below are a few key communication milestones a child should have at various ages. If your child is not showing these skills, you should consider contacting a Speech Language-Pathologist to decide if an evaluation is needed.

  • By 3 months old: smiling and reacting to others.

  • By 7 months: babbling, their gaze follows sounds, react to objects that make sounds.

  • Between 9-12 months: gesturing, waving, pointing, imitating sounds. Makes good eye contact.

  • By age 1: producing a few words (ex. mama, dada) with intent, understands common words.

  • By 15 months: imitating simple words, saying at least 10 words spontaneously, follows simple directions, reacts to “No.”   

  • By 18 months: producing 50 words spontaneously, starting to put two words together (ex. “more juice”).

  • By 2 years: most vowels are produced correctly, but they are producing various consonants, especially at the beginning of words, leaving the last consonant off of words, being understood 50% of the time by parents, combining two words consistently, talking during play when alone and with others, producing /b,d,h,m,n,p,t,w/, starting to ask simple questions (ex. “Where daddy?”). Answering “yes/no” questions. Using 150 words. Follows 2-step directions.

  • By 3 years old: not leaving the last sound off words, producing the above sounds and /k,g/, being understood 75% of the time, the average sentence contains 3 words, playing with other children, answering “What” and “Where” questions. Using 300-400 words. Follows 3-step directions.

  • By 4 years old: average sentence contains 4 words, producing the above sounds and /f/. Communicates efficiently and effectively. Even people not familiar with your child understand 90% of what they say.   

  • By 5 years old: their average sentence contains 5 words, producing “sh, j, y, ch” /l,s,z,v/ -ing

  • By 6 years old: producing /r/, consonant blends (e.g. gl-, tr-)

  • By 7 years old: producing “th”

If your child consistently repeats things said by others days ago, from TV or repeats things verbatim that is not functional (e.g. you want your child, Joey, to say “bye” to someone, and you prompt him, “Say bye, Joey,” and he repeats “Say bye, Joey” rather than just “bye,”) this could be echolalia which is not a typical step in language development and a Speech Therapist should be contacted.
