What if I am unsure if speech therapy is the right option?

We will provide a free initial consult if you want more information.  You will complete a case history giving details about the speech/language concern and possibly past evaluations and treatment plans.  We will review those documents and can offer a free consultation  up to 30 minutes to help make a decision if the timing for therapy is right.

Where are therapy services provided?

COVID-19 Update: We are committed to keeping clients healthy and safe by currently providing teletherapy only. As it becomes safe to do so, we plan to offer services at your child’s school, your place of business or home, or at a to-be-determined Madison West side clinic near the University Hospital.

Does SOS Speech accept insurance?

Our billing relationship is with you. SOS Speech is currently an out-of-network provider with all insurance companies. Once you have paid for services at our clinic, we are happy to provide a statement that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. ​Typically asking for prior authorization is required for utilizing an out-of-network provider.

Do parents usually sit in during therapy sessions?

Parent and/or family involvement is key to therapy success.  For many children that may mean a parent or caregiver being present during the all or part of the therapy session.  However, Laura is creative in finding ways to involve parents/caregivers who cannot be present during a therapy session.

How often is speech therapy?

We are flexible at SOS Speech and will try to accommodate different scheduling needs.
