Commonly asked questions about our services.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO GET STARTED WITH THERAPY OR AN EVALUATION?
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Our process is easy. If you or your child has not had a recent 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. This process is the same for both group and individual therapy. Our therapists need to meet and evaluate new clients in order to determine what type and frequency of therapy will best meet their needs.
CAN WE DO AN INFORMAL EVALUATION IF MY CHILD WAS RECENTLY EVALUATED?
Yes. If you have a recent (six months or less) speech-language evaluation we will ask you to share that with us when we meet with your child in order to do an informal evaluation to see if the goals/treatment decision continues to meet your child's needs.
HOW LONG ARE YOUR THERAPY SESSIONS AND HOW OFTEN WILL YOU SEE ME OR MY CHILD?
Sessions are anywhere from 30-60 minutes in length. Most sessions are 45 minutes long.
Clients are seen anywhere from 1-3 times per week depending on their communication needs.
We work with clients and families in our clinics in Westmont and Naperville. We provide teletherapy for anyone in the state of Illinois and some of our therapists are licensed for teletherapy in other states (California). We provide world-wide consultations/coaching on gestalt language development and echolalia to professionals and parents.
WILL YOU COMMUNICATE WITH MY CHILD'S SCHOOL, OTHER THERAPIST, AND/OR PEDIATRICIAN?
We love collaborating with outside schools, providers, and medical professionals. We are happy to email or schedule phone consultations with any member of your child's team (anything 15 minutes or less is free of charge).
