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

We try to check your benefits every year, even if we’re out-of-network!  This helps ensure everything runs smoothly and there are no surprises.

We submit superbills & claims for you even if we’re out-of-network!  Claims are typically submitted at the end of every week.  Reimbursement is sent to you.

Offering services on-location within our driving area!  We can go to homes, schools, daycares, etc.  It’s the ultimate in cutting-edge & convenient therapy!

We stop, think & plan before our day begins and after every appointment.  This improves their experience and helps you reach your long-term goals as efficiently as possible.

We always strive 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.


Initial Meet & Greet

Not sure if speech-language therapy is necessary?  Want to talk to the therapist first?  We understand.  Let’s meet via phone or telehealth and discuss your concerns.  Schedule your Meet & Greet here.


Targeted Evaluations

Only concerned about specific speech sounds or fluency/stuttering? Cheerful Chatter will respect your wishes and limit testing to one area. Everything will be explained in a clearly worded and highly detailed report.

Insurance reimbursement may be available… and we’ll help figure it all out!


In-Depth Evaluations

We will test what needs testing.  That may include motor-speech, oral language, written language, cognition, and/or social skills. Cheerful Chatter will work with you to determine your priorities and your child’s strengths and weaknesses. Everything will be explained in a clearly worded and highly detailed report.

Insurance reimbursement may be available… and we’ll help figure it all out!


Independent Evaluations for Local Schools

Parents: Not in agreement with the evaluation completed by your school? State law gives all parents the right to an independent evaluation by a provider of their choice. 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.

How to Schedule an Evaluation


  • Start the conversation by completing a contact form at the bottom of any page
  • Complete some paperwork online and send us photos of the front and back of your insurance card
  • We will check your insurance benefits and explain what we learned
  • We’ll schedule the evaluation and meet for testing
  • After the evaluation, we will provide you with a clearly worded, highly detailed, written report

Individual Therapy


Individual Therapy (45 minutes total)

Appointments include time for your child and time for you… Because children make the most progress when skills are reinforced at home, it is important for us to stay on the same page.  Taking the time to review their progress, answer your questions, and disucss how you can help them at home can make a world of difference!

Come once per week or multiple times per week… we’ll make a recommendation, but work within your schedule and budget.  Appointments are held during the week in the afternoons and evenings to help avoid conflicts with work and school schedules.

Social Skills Groups & Programs

Research-based. Evidence-based. Parent-assisted. Proven results! Click here for more information.

Mommy and Me Groups


the ART of reading

Using research and evidence-based activities, we will build early sound and letter knowledge in a creative and dynamic way.  Not only will they learn skills critical for learning to read and spell, but they’ll be ready for kindergarten before you know it!

Each class includes storytime, a mommy and me arts & crafts activity, and open playtime to encourage exploration, creativity, cognitive, and social skills.  While the kids play, mommies (or daddies or other caregivers) will relax with refreshments and good company!  Perfect for children 3-5 years of age who are typically-developing or at-risk of learning disabilities.  For more information click here.

Homeschool Haven Groups



We combined vocabulary development, word study, and art for a fun, creative way to boost langauge skills and have fun. 



We took creative writing, turned it on it’s head, and added the fun of illustration.  Kids will create a story together, but illustrate their books independently.  It is sure to be a fun and creative time for all!



Our homeschool families have been looking for a way for their kids to simply have fun, meet others, and find friends.  We have the answer… Recess!!  A time for homeschool families to gather, meet each other, and bond over common interests.  The format is open play so kids can simply be kids.
