Q&A:


What about allergies?

The office is peanut and tree-nut free. We strictly adhere to this policy so that our clients have a safe environment. Please disclose all of your child’s allergies and medical conditions with the therapist.

Can a parent attend the sessions?

We have an open door policy. The parents are welcome to attend every session. If you would like a different adult (family member, nanny/caregiver, another therapist) to attend the session we will ask for consent in writing. Please note: only one adult is allowed to attend at a time.

How often will my child need to come to speech therapy?

Therapy mandates will be determined based on the initial evaluation or evaluation paperwork from another sources i.e. EI, Board of Education, another therapist. Typically, children over 18-months come once or twice a week for individual 45 minute sessions. Children under 18-months usually have 30 minute sessions.
