Speech Sound Therapy

If a child substitutes one sound for another or changes a word by adding or removing sounds, it can be difficult to understand what the child is saying. Speech sound therapy focuses on learning the correct way to produce sounds.

Language Therapy

Children might have trouble understanding and using words and sentences, which can make it difficult to respond and communicate effectively. Language therapy helps children express themselves and understand others by expanding their vocabulary and improving cognitive processing.

Our Speech Therapy Process - 4 Steps

1. Phone Consult

You’ll have a complimentary phone consultation with Caitlin to determine if the needs of your child and family align with Caitlin’s specialty areas.

2. Speech Evaluation

If we have a good match, we’ll determine where services will be provided and schedule a speech-language evaluation.

3. Go over results of evaluation.

This is followed by a consultation to go over the results and discuss a therapy plan.

4. Start working to achieve your goals!

Then we’ll schedule recurring therapy sessions and start working to achieve your goals!

Other Services

Independent Educational Evaluations

We specialize in working with children who have complex communication needs. We can provide an independent educational evaluation to compare with your school’s evaluation and support your decision-making process.


Parent and Professional Consultations

Do you have questions or concerns about your child? We would be happy to schedule parent and professional consultations to discuss these matters without taking away from the therapist’s one-on-one time with your child.

Our Rates

Evaluations:  $400

Evaluations are the first step for all new clients!  Has your child been evaluated in the last 6 months?  If your report addresses your concerns and appropriately informs therapy, let’s skip this step!  Our evaluations cost $400 and include a written report and discussion with the family regarding the child’s treatment plan.

Therapy Sessions:  $115/45-minute session

Therapy sessions include direct time sent with your child plus a quick debriefing with the family regarding how the child did and what can be practiced at home between therapy sessions.  45-minute therapy sessions are scheduled on a weekly basis for consistency and progress and cost $115 per session.

Parent and Professional Consultations:  $150/hour

Parent and professional consultations cost $150 per hour and are charged in 15-minute increments.  

Independent Educational Evaluations and AAC Trainings:

Independent Educational Evaluations and AAC trainings are offered.  Please contact us for pricing details.

Caitlin is a  NCSEAA approved provider. 

A private pay model....

Although we can provide a superbill if you have out-of-network coverage, and certain types of therapy may be covered by a health savings account (HSA) or flexible savings account (FSA), The Little Speech Tree does not accept health insurance.

A private pay model gives us the freedom and flexibility to operate in a way that’s best for the child. Caitlin can maintain a low caseload and spend more time with each child and family, offering more comprehensive, personalized therapy with innovative techniques. This approach allows us to make more progress in less time compared to cookie-cutter therapy plans.

You want what is best for your child.

Unfortunately, speech-language therapy is sometimes delayed as parents hope their child will grow out of whatever is causing them difficulty. Early intervention, however, is critical to identifying the cause of a child’s difficulty and the right treatment plan as quickly as possible. Let’s have a conversation to discuss your concerns.
