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 Process - 4 Steps

2. Speech Evaluation

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

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.

Caitlin is a NCSEAA approved provider.

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.
