Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve never tried teletherapy before. How does it work?
Teletherapy is therapy done from the comfort of your own home, with the use of a computer, tablet, or smartphone. During these uncertain times, many families are deciding to have therapy done in a safer, more controlled environment. Everyone’s needs are different, so we tailor our therapeutic approaches to your specific needs.
What’s the difference between teletherapy and traditional speech therapy?
The main difference is the service delivery. While teletherapy may not be optimal at times, teletherapy can place parents on the front line of helping their children succeed! At Speech Therapy For All, our mission is to help teach parents how to follow up with the therapeutic techniques shown during the session, and then continue teaching their child after the sessions have concluded. When children go to school, many parents are unaware of what exactly is being done, and more importantly, how to implement these strategies at home. When parents are active participants, this can greatly reduce the amount of time your child may need to be receiving therapy.
If you would rather have a face-to-face appointment, please make an appointment to be seen in our office. 🙂
How long will it take?
Unfortunately, this is not possible to explain in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them, and the length of therapy necessary to accomplish your goals depends on many factors.
What if it doesn’t work?
We offer a free consult to see if speech teletherapy works for you. If you feel that this isn’t the right fit, you can stop at any time or come to the office for in-person, one-on-one sessions. There are no contracts or hidden fees.
Will my insurance cover the costs?
We accept Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Emblem Health (GHI/HIP), Humana TriCare, Magnacare, Medicare, NYSHIP, UMR, and United Healthcare, among others. Please contact us if your insurance is not listed.
