FAQs

1. How do I make an appointment?

Email melissa@melissaspeechtherapy.com to begin the process of scheduling a time to meet one-on-one to discuss your family member’s specific needs.

2.  Frequency of therapy sessions?

There is no one answer to this question as no two patients are the same. It depends totally on the condition and the needs. While some patients receive treatment one time a week, others may be seen multiple times a week.  I strive to make therapy as convenient as possible.

 

The scope and duration of your therapy will be decided at the initial visit consultation and be reassessed on an on-going basis.

 

3.  Do you accept insurance?

I do not accept insurance; however, I provide families I work with invoices, with the appropriate codes, so they can be submitted to insurance for their reimbursement.

 

4.  Do you have private pay rates?

Yes, I can provide a listing of our private pay rates. 

 

5.  What is your cancellation policy?

There is no charge for cancellations made 24-hours prior to a scheduled appointment. Failure to cancel with less than 24-hours’ notice will result in a no show fee proportionate to the appointment cost. This policy is strictly enforced and applies to all patients.

 

6.  What is speech-language teletherapy?

Speech and language teletherapy is the online delivery of speech and language therapy services via high-resolution, live video conferencing. Teletherapy sessions are very similar to traditional speech and language therapy sessions with one major exception. Instead of sitting in the same room, students and therapists interact via live video conferencing.  This is an evolving situation due to COVID-19. Typical sessions last anywhere 30, 45 or 60 minutes.. 

 

7.  What is a virtual playgroup? 

A virtual playgroup consists of 2 friends engaging in structured activities to promote communication and interactions between the friends using video conferencing.  These playgroups are designed for the age of the children. It is not designed for children under 3 years old.
