Speech-Language Evaluations, Therapy & Social Skills Groups

Our Services Go Well Beyond Testing and Therapy
We Solve Problems Before They Happen

We check your benefits every year, even if we’re not in-network with your plan. Typically, each one of these calls takes about 45 minutes. This helps ensure everything runs smoothly and there are no surprise charges.

We submit claims for you… even if we’re out-of-network! When it comes to problematic in-network claims we processed and submitted, many are settled long before you find out there was an issue.

We stop, think & plan before our day begins. This allows us to revisit how things went during our last session and reach your long-term goals as intelligently and efficiently as possible.

We’re always striving to be better today than we were yesterday. We are constantly seeking new research and advanced trainings in areas that directly benefit you, your child, and your family.

Independent Evaluations for Local Schools

Parents: Not in agreement with the evaluation completed by your school? State law provides all parents with the right to an independent evaluation by a provider of their choice at the school’s expense. If interested, let your Child Study Team know that you want Cheerful Chatter to complete an independent evaluation of your child’s speech, oral, written, and/or pragmatic (social) language skills.

Schools: Do you need extra support? Cheerful Chatter is here to help. We contract directly with schools on a limited basis to identify the strengths, weaknesses, and needs of your students in the areas of speech, oral, written, and/or pragmatic language.

Therapy
=

Individual Therapy ($75/90*)

30 minutes of therapy + 5 minutes of parent training + 5 minutes of documenting what we did, how they responded, and what we’ll do next

Come once per week or multiple times per week… we’ll make a recommendation, but work within your schedule and budget. In the beginning, we’ll figure out what sparks their interest, how they want to learn, and which strategies work best for your child. Each day, during the parent training portion of the session, we’ll answer your questions and explain how you can help from home during your usual, daily activities. By partnering together and bringing little moments of therapy into their daily routines, your child will experience true and lasting progress.

Sessions are held during the week in the afternoons and evenings to help avoid conflicts with work and school schedules. If not participating in the session, you can relax in the waiting room while watching a live stream of your child’s progress. Coffee, tea, and water are always available. Rooms and materials are cleaned with a food-grade surface cleaner between every client.

No coverage? No problem! Pre-paid packages are available at a discounted rate.
