Q: Do you accept insurance?

A: Unfortunately, we do not participate directly with insurance providers.  However, we will assist you in submitting claims to your insurance company by providing you with detailed invoices following each session.  All invoices will specify the date and description of services, as well as associated diagnosis and treatment codes necessary for reimbursement purposes.

Q: What ages do you serve?

A: We provide speech and language services to children aged birth and older as well as adults.

Q: What qualifications does your staff have?

A: All of our clinicians hold a master’s degree in speech-language pathology.  We are licensed in the state of Virginia and the District of Columbia and hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (i.e., ASHA).

Q: What type of therapy programs do you offer?

A: We offer individual and small group therapy programs.  Please call us to inquire about specific programs that meet your needs or the needs of your child.

Q: How do I initiate services?

Please call us to discuss your specific needs or the needs of your child.  At this time, we will discuss any questions or concerns that you may have.  Prior to your or your child’s first diagnostic or therapy session, you will be asked to complete specific background forms to help us develop an individualized plan tailored to your needs or the needs of your child.

Q: What are your service fees?

A: Service fees vary based on type of program (i.e., individual/group) as well as length of session.  Please contact us to discuss specific service fees.

Q: How long will it take to make a difference?

A: The amount of progress achieved by our clients is highly specific to each individual.  Factors that may influence progress include severity of impairment, amount of practice, client motivation, family support, and client attendance.

Q: How do you measure progress?

A: Typically, diagnostic assessments are used to determine an appropriate baseline for future progress comparison.  Throughout the therapy process, periodic re-evaluation and input provided by the client, family, and other professionals are used to determine treatment progress.

Q: How do you determine when it is appropriate to use the services of a professional speech-language pathologist?

A: For children, speech and language developmental milestones provide a general snapshot of their current communication proficiency.  However, it is important to remember that all children are different and that they will often achieve communication milestones at different times.  If you suspect that your child has speech and language concerns, we recommend that you contact a professional speech-language pathologist as soon as possible as early intervention is important in remediating communication difficulties.

For adults, speech and language services may be beneficial for a variety of reasons including referral from another professional or a desire to improve overall functional communication skills.
