Helpful Information

How do I know if my child needs speech therapy? 

If you’re wondering if your child’s speech or language skills are developing as they should, follow your intuition. You know your child best, but I can help you determine if services are needed. All children develop at different rates and with their own strengths. Click here to read about expected speech/language milestones for ages birth to 5.

Do you take insurance?

At this time, Playhouse Kids Therapy LLC is an out-of-network provider. Payment is due at the time of service. However, I can generate a superbill statement that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. You are responsible for verifying if a superbill is accepted within your individual insurance plan. I can provide you with a guide containing step-by-step instructions so you will know exactly what to ask your insurance company. I can also accept Health Saving Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) payments.

Does my child need an evaluation?

It is best practice to begin with an evaluation to identify both a child's current skill level as well as any underlying challenges contributing to the areas of concern. If you have completed an evaluation at another facility within the last 6 months that provides all of the necessary information, that evaluation may be accepted, and therapy started immediately. If the evaluation was completed over 6 months ago or additional information is required, your child will need to participate in an evaluation.

Is online therapy (teletherapy) right for my child?

Research shows that the type of therapy, not the medium (teletherapy vs. in-person) in which services are delivered, makes the biggest impact on your child's progress. Both parent coaching and therapy to address speech sound disorders/delays are well suited for online therapy. Parents love the convenience of online therapy! Attending a session is as easy as clicking on a link, and your child still gets to play fun, interactive games just as we would in person while addressing their speech therapy goals.

What are the technical requirements for teletherapy?

All you need is a secure internet connection, as well as a device with audio/visual capabilities. You may use a computer or a tablet; however, some teletherapy features may not be supported on iPads/tablets. Client privacy is of utmost importance. All client information is protected as it is confidential and encrypted. Videoconferencing and all client communication are protected by HIPPA.

Can I be present for my child’s session?

Of course! Whether you’re attending in-person or via teletherapy, I’d love for you to be involved in your child’s sessions. Depending on the type of goals we’re addressing, I welcome families to observe and/or actively participate during therapy sessions. Family involvement can greatly improve children’s ability to use the skills they’ve learned during sessions across all environments! For early communicators, we will collaborate with one another during sessions, demonstrating and practicing strategies to embed in your natural routines and play!

What types of clients do you serve?

At this time, I primarily serve children ages 2-12 with speech sound disorders/delays and children ages birth-3 years with language delays/who are late talkers. If your child doesn’t fall directly into one of these categories and you have concerns about your child’s speech or language skills, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

What are the benefits of private therapy?

  • NO referral is needed for evaluation or therapy.

  • There are no specific requirements for a child to qualify for services. If you and I decide that your child needs therapy, your child will receive therapy.

  • There is no wait time to start therapy.

  • Your child will make progress more quickly because treatment is tailored to you and your family and you will be trained to use strategies like a therapist.
