Therapy services are billed at a rate of $130 per hour. Evaluations are billed at a rate of $180 per hour.
We can accept payment via cash, personal check, electronic bank transfer, or credit card.
You can pay on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. This will be discussed and agreed upon prior to the start of services.
We offer one-hour individual therapy sessions. Each session includes 50-minutes of direct contact treatment and 10-minutes of indirect treatment. This allows the clinician time to complete session notes, track progress, and provide feedback to the parents or caregivers.
We strive to include the family throughout the treatment process. Parents or caregivers are invited to observe and participate in the first 2 sessions. Then you and your clinician will determine how often you should participate in therapy sessions with your child. It is important for your child to have one-on-one time with the therapist to establish new skills and work through challenges. Your clinician will invite you to observe sessions when appropriate so you can help your child grow and develop at home between sessions.
We encourage you to be an active member of your child's treatment. You and your clinician will determine the best means for feedback and how often it will occur. We understand that life can get busy. We are happy to communicate with you in person, on the phone, via email, and through text message. Formal progress reports can be provided for an additional charge.
Because every child has different abilities, your initial consultation includes an evaluation. Based on your child's needs this may involve observation, parent interview, and administration of formal assessment tools. Completing an evaluation allows us to fully understand your child's strengths and challenges. You will be asked to complete a history form and a parent questionnaire. We may ask you to provide copies of previous reports from other service providers, including doctors, therapists, and teachers. The amount of time needed to complete an evaluation varies. We will discuss how much time you should allow when you make an appointment.
Following the evaluation, you will receive:
If recommended, your child will then begin individual therapy sessions. Please see the Therapy section for more information.
Budding Voices is pleased to offer a FREE initial consultation to all new families. This is a 30-60 minute session during which you and your child can come meet with our clinical director, Tiffany. You will have the opportunity to express any concerns about your child's speech-language development, as well as discuss any relevant background information. Tiffany will also spend some time engaging you child in informal assessment through play-based activities. The consultation is the first step to becoming part of the Budding Voices family.
