Private, in-home speech therapy for
children on the Westside of Los Angeles
I provide in-home and in-school evaluation and intervention services for infants, toddlers, children, and adolescents on the Westside of Los Angeles. Additionally, I am available for consultations, observations, and teacher/staff trainings in other environments (e.g., school, camp, recreational activities, corporate).
At this time, my company is private pay (insurance is not accepted). However, I do offer superbills that you may submit to your insurance carrier for potential reimbursement. Every insurance plan has different policies, so I recommend that you check with your insurance company regarding their acceptance of superbills from out-of-network providers. I am also a vendor with the Westside Regional Center.
Comprehensive evaluations are conducted in-home when a client has not yet been diagnosed or treated, or upon request. Evaluations typically use a combination of standardized assessments, parent interview, informal testing of skills, and clinical observations. The process begins with the completion of an intake form, which aids in the selection of appropriate testing materials and provides important background information. A detailed assessment report will be written to include standardized assessment results and recommendations for therapy (if warranted), including frequency, length of sessions, and treatment goals.
In-home or in-school speech and language intervention is provided using various programs, strategies, and techniques. Therapy sessions are typically one hour in length. All services include parent education and training to facilitate generalization outside of the session and to ensure the highest quality of services. Based on parent/child preference and age of the child, parents may participate in the entire session or in debriefing and training for the final 5-10 minutes of the session.
