Building Confidence & Success

Does your child say “wed” instead of “red” or “dod” instead of “dog”?

I have found with speech therapy I can help children feel more confident socially and be more successful in the classroom. Speaking clearly helps children feel more confident when speaking with peers and participating in the classroom. Get your child the help he/she needs to succeed at public speaking.

The change you will see in your child will be astonishing as children who speak clearly are more confident, do better at school and end up more successful in life.

The R is one of the most common articulation errors for children.

Most children have difficulty with articulation (e.g. the /r/ /s/ and /l/ sounds) by the time they start kindergarten. Contact me for additional information about what children have difficulty with. I am PROMPT and SATPAC trained which are proven to be effective in remediating articulation errors.

Pricing & Insurance

Billing Information

Apple Speech Therapy is not contracted with any insurance companies. At your request, we can provide you a “superbill” which you can submit to your insurance company for any reimbursement you may be entitled to according to your plan and coverage.

The “superbill” will contain diagnostic and treatment codes to be submitted to your insurance company.
Payment is due at the end of each therapy session. We accept cash, check, and credit card.

We highly recommend you verify with your insurance company whether or not you have coverage for speech and language services.

We will happily provide any additional information or documentation your insurance may need in order to determine coverage. Occasionally, insurance companies may request assessment reports and progress notes.

Questions to ask your insurance company

  • Does my insurance plan provide “out of network” reimbursement for speech and language services?
  • What is the reimbursement rate for assessments and treatment?
  • Do I need initial approval from the insurance company before I can arrange for a speech and language evaluation?
  • Are benefits only for evaluation or also ongoing speech and language therapy?
