Our Services

Evaluations and Therapy


  • We provide comprehensive speech/language evaluations to determine your child's speech and language needs.  A treatment plan with suggested goals and objectives will be developed, as well as recommendations for frequency and duration of therapy visits.
  • We also provide individual speech-language therapy.  Parent participation is highly encouraged and homework is typically assigned to assist with carryover of skills in the home environment.  

Insurance or Private Pay


We work with several insurance companies, including Tricare, HMSA, HMAA, UHA, and United Healthcare.  Please inquire for pricing, if interested in becoming a private pay client.
