Frequently Asked Questions

Please reach us at intake@essentialspeechtherapy.com if you cannot find an answer to your question.

Speech teletherapy, also known as telepractice or telehealth speech therapy, is a form of speech-language therapy that is conducted remotely using digital communication tools and technology. It allows speech-language pathologists (SLPs) to provide assessment, diagnosis, intervention, and support to individuals with communication and speech-related difficulties without the need for in-person interactions.

There is evidence to suggest that speech teletherapy can be just as effective as in-person speech therapy. Numerous studies and reviews have found positive outcomes and improvements in communication skills for individuals receiving speech teletherapy. Our evidence-based approach to therapy has proven to be highly effective in treating a variety of speech and language disorders. However, the success of therapy ultimately depends on the individual needs and goals of each client.

  • Accessibility: Teletherapy allows individuals to access therapy services from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need for travel time and potential transportation barriers. This can be particularly advantageous for people living in remote areas or with limited mobility.
  • Convenience: Teletherapy offers flexibility in scheduling, as it eliminates the need to coordinate travel and wait times. It can be especially beneficial for individuals with busy schedules, such as working professionals or parents with young children.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Teletherapy may be more cost-effective since it eliminates transportation costs and reduces the need for office space. This can result in lower fees for therapy services.
  • Privacy: Some individuals may feel more comfortable opening up and discussing sensitive topics from the privacy of their own homes, potentially leading to a more open and productive therapeutic relationship. Continuity of care: Teletherapy allows individuals to continue their therapy even during travel or unexpected circumstances that might inhibit face-to-face sessions. This helps to maintain the continuity of care and progress made in therapy.
  • Increased access to specialists: Teletherapy can connect individuals with specialized therapists who may not be available locally, thereby expanding access to expert care.

The purpose of the consultation is to provide a brief interaction between a potential client (you) and a service provider to assess your needs, determine if the service provider is a good fit, and discuss the potential course of treatment.

This consultation allows you to ask questions, share concerns, and get a sense of the therapist's expertise and approach. It can also help the therapist gather relevant information about the client's condition or goals in order to determine the best way to proceed. To summarize, the consultation is meant to provide an initial connection and establish whether further evaluation or treatment is warranted.

  • Administrative costs: When we bill through insurance, they have to spend time and resources to handle the complexities of the insurance billing process. This includes verifying coverage, submitting claims, following up on payments, and dealing with any denials or rejections. The administrative burden can be time-consuming and costly, which may increase the overall cost of therapy.
  • Reimbursement rates: Insurance companies typically negotiate lower reimbursement rates with healthcare providers. This means therapists may receive lower payment amounts for the services they provide when billing through insurance, compared to private pay rates. To offset these lower rates, therapists may need to charge higher fees to cover their costs and make their practice financially viable.
  • Limited sessions: Insurance companies often impose limits on the number of therapy sessions covered or may require extensive documentation and justification for ongoing treatment. These limitations, combined with the additional administrative tasks, may result in therapists needing to charge higher fees to sustain their practice.
  • Flexibility and control: Private pay allows therapists to have more control and flexibility in their practice. They can set their own rates, establish payment plans, and focus on providing care without the restrictions or requirements imposed by insurance companies.

  • Pricing: Bundled packages are priced at a discounted rate compared to purchasing individual sessions separately. This can make it more cost-effective for individuals seeking consistent or extended therapy.
  • Consistency: Bundled sessions encourage consistent attendance and engagement in therapy. Regular practice and attendance are important for achieving the best results in speech therapy.
  • Progress tracking: Speech therapy sessions are progressive, with goals and objectives set for each session. Purchasing sessions in a bundle allows for better tracking of progress and goal achievement over time.
  • Flexibility: Bundled packages might some degree of flexibility in rescheduling sessions in case of unforeseen circumstances.
  • Completion and renewal: Once you've completed all the sessions in your bundle, you can assess your progress and determine whether further therapy is needed. You may choose to purchase another bundle or continue with individual sessions as needed.
