Do you accept insurance?
Bilingual Speech & Language Services, LLC is a fee-for-service practice, therefore full payment by cash, check, or credit card is due at the time services are rendered. We are not a participating provider with insurance companies at this time. We are considered out-of-network with all insurance companies. We can provide you with necessary documentation (i.e. evaluation report, progress notes, receipt of service, insurance coding, etc.) for insurance reimbursement. Reimbursement is dependent upon an individual’s plan.
Will my insurance cover my child's speech and language therapy?
Some insurance companies do cover or reimburse payment for speech and language therapy services. Please check with your insurance company and review their policy coverage and restrictions to confirm.
What ages do you work with?
I provide services to toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children.
What to tell your child?
Tell your child that they are going to come see "Miss Jesenia" and that she will have pictures and books to look at. We will also play games and take breaks as needed. If your child is very shy, they may want to bring a special toy or book to show as an "ice-breaker".
Parents are welcome to sit in on evaluations, listen from the waiting area, or leave and return to pick up their child. Together, we can decide what the best situation for your child is. You may want to bring snacks for your child to the evaluation/assessment.
Will I stay with my child during therapy?
This can vary on case by case basis. Parents are absolutely encouraged to observe and participate in therapy sessions. Younger children typically have parents participate or nearby during therapy. Older children can be dropped off after the child and parent are familiar with the therapist and environment. Some parents prefer to sit in on every session and others prefer to sit in the waiting room or go on a brief errand.
What might a typical speech-language therapy session look like?
Therapy activities are tailored to the developmental level and interests of the child. Older children targeting specific speech-language goals may work with cards or board games to learn new skills. For younger children, therapy sessions are centered around functional and structured play activities. Regardless of the age, developmental level, or specific needs, your child should feel comfortable and enjoy his or her time in therapy.
How often will my child have to be seen for speech therapy?
Appointment durations and frequencies are based upon the needs and schedule of each child. Services can be provided daily, weekly, or monthly. Individual therapy sessions can range from 30-60 minutes.
