Our team of Speech-Language Pathologists in Dallas Texas are here to provide Speech therapy from the comfort of your own home. We aim to inspire and empower our students as we Embrace the Amazing in Every Child from online via your computer, tablet, or phone. Speech Language Therapy online has been shown to be an effective service delivery model with teletherapy working well for most students.
How do telehealth services work? After scheduling services with our front office, you will be given a link to attend a HIPAA protected therapy session. The online system that we use contains many Apps, visual boards and therapeutic games to keep students engaged as they practice their speech sounds, make up sentences about an interactive scene, assemble sentences, and address many other communication and literacy skills. Individual stories and other materials are easily uploaded on the screen for more specific targeting of the child’s goals.
Children as young as Pre-School 3- and 4- have shown success with Online Speech Therapy with the help of a parent – if your child has trouble attending to structured tasks, we may request that a parent or adult attend and help the child stay engaged during their sessions. Not only will this improve your child’s performance but will also help you learn ways in which to best help your child in their communication goals. Many students thrive on computer interaction, but LIVE computer interaction is even better, and it’s customized to meet their needs.
The intake process for teletherapy services is the same; we start with either a Screening or comprehensive Speech-Language Evaluation. Our clinic offers free Screenings where you and your child can meet with an SLP for a “mini-test”. After completing the full Speech-Language Evaluation the SLP writes a report with individual goals for therapy. The evaluation may take place online or in our clinic.
Due to the current health crisis, many insurance companies have made it easier for providers to serve clients remotely. We accept insurance and directly bill Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, and TriCare, and the Medicaid plans Parkland, Amerigroup, Children’s, and TMHP. We also offer private pay services on a sliding scale basis and will keep a credit card on file to bill for each session or any copays at the time of service. Please contact us directly to discuss private pay services or additional payment options.
Our team also offers specialized reading tutoring online, which is available nationwide to boost reading decoding, reading comprehension and written composition skills. Our services are tailored to the individual specific needs for a range of students, from beginning readers, Elementary, Junior High and through High School.
