Initial Visit

The initial visit with your speech therapist will be an evaluation session that will include completion of paperwork, a parent interview, and appropriate standardized assessments. Evaluation sessions typically last about one hour,
but vary based on the patient’s age, participation, and necessary testing.
Following the evaluation, the Speech Therapist will score the tests, interpret results, and write an evaluation report to include goals to be targeted during therapy if recommended.

During the initial treatment session, parents are encouraged to discuss goals with the speech therapist so that they can be well suited to the family’s needs. Therapy sessions are either 30 minutes or 45 minutes in length and typically 1 or 2 times a week. The length and frequency of sessions will be determined based on patient’s age, attention of the child, payment source and family’s needs.

Each child will have 6-month goals written based on testing results and caregiver concerns. These goals will be reassessed and modified as needed by the speech therapist, based on the patient’s progress. The speech therapist will provide weekly feedback, and homework following each session. Monthly updates on progress will also be reported to the family. The speech therapist will submit documentation to doctors, teachers, and other care providers if written consent is provided.

 

Payment

We are in network with Medicaid, Care Source, United Healthcare, WellCare, Peach State, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia, Aetna and Amerigroup. We also accept checks and debit/credit cards for private paying patients. We are not in-network with any private insurance companies. Payment is due at the time of service. Many individuals are reimbursed by their out-of-network insurance benefits for our services – but it is the parent’s responsibility to seek reimbursement.
