FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Don't see your question? Give us a call! We will be happy to answer your questions, discuss your concerns, and provide guidance on the next steps.

How do we get started?

If your child has not had an evaluation in the past six months, we will schedule an evaluation. Following the evaluation, we will determine whether therapy is warranted and set up services. If your child has had a speech/language evaluation within the past 6 months, we can get you scheduled to begin with direct therapy right away during our 15 minute consultation call.

Do you take insurance?

We do not take insurance. We are private (out of pocket) pay; however, we provide a superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider for potential full or partial reimbursement. 

How long are therapy sessions? Frequency?

Most of our sessions are 30 or 60 minutes in length. The frequency depends on each individual child's needs, ranging from 1-3 sessions per week.

What is gestalt language?

If your child uses "scripting" or delayed echolalia, they are likely a gestalt language processor. There are two ways that children process language: analytic and gestalt. While analytic processors process language word by word (e.g. "mom", then "mom go", then "mom go up"), gestalt processors process language in "chunks" or gestalts (also known as scripts/scripting). Single words are not processed as single units of meaning until later in language development. These students use delayed echolalia (often of whole phrases/songs/movie lines) to acquire language. Most autistic students are gestalt language processors (85% +), but neurotypical children can process language this way as well.

How do you work with gestalt language?

We use the Natural Language Acquisition (NLA) framework, coined by Marge Blanc, to support gestalt language processors to move from delayed echolalia (scripting) to novel, self-generated language. Their echolalia is validated and valued.

What ages do you work with?

We work with a wide range of ages from 2-21.

Can I be present for my child's session?

Yes! In fact, we encourage it. Since we are in-home based, we value the opportunity to connect with the child's family and really integrate the methods we are using into their everyday routine.

Can you work with my child if they see another speech therapist as well?

Yes! And we are always more than happy to collaborate with other team members.
