FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Wondering if Speaking Sensory is a good fit for your family? Here are some common, frequently asked questions that might help point you in the right direction! Still unsure, contact us today.

  • How do I know if my child needs speech therapy?

    We are team “trust your gut” vs. team “wait and see.” If your child is not using 50 words by the age of 2, is difficult to understand at the age of 4, a history of feeding/swallowing difficulties, these are all strong indicators that your child would benefit from an evaluation from a speech-language pathologist.

  • What’s the first step in this process?

    We always offer a FREE consultation to get a better understanding of your child’s strengths and needs. From there, we will set up a time for an evaluation. After the evaluation, you will receive a detailed evaluation report with a treatment plan outlining goals/objectives based on your concerns. We then work together to come up with a frequency for therapy that fits your family’s needs (1x/week, 2x/week, monthly, etc.). Parent education is incorporated into each session.

  • What areas do you serve?

    We service Charlotte and the surrounding areas. Our center is located in Charlotte, NC (4446 South Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28209). Speech therapy sessions can take place at our center, or we can provide home visits if your home is located within 10 miles of our center.

  • What ages do you work with?

    We service children ages Birth to 21, with specific focus on the birth to five population.

  • Do you accept insurance?

    At this time, Speaking Sensory is out of network with insurance providers. We do, however, provide superbills upon request. We also utilize IvyPay, a HIPAA compliant payment processing service that allows you to use your FSA/HSA funds towards therapy!

  • Do you provide home visits?

    Yes! We will provide therapy at your home if your residence is within 10 miles of our center.

  • Do you provide daycare visits?

    Yes! We will provide therapy at your child’s school and/or daycare if their school is within 10 miles of our center.
