Teletherapy Services

Feel free to set up an initial, free, no-commitment consultation appointment with a licensed and certified speech language pathologist.

We learn about you, your child, their communication skills, and your goals for your child’s therapy.

From there, we can talk about which therapy services you’d like to try for your child. For some families, telepractice might be the best option for busy schedules. Children and caregivers that don’t excel in a telehealth setting have other options, too. 

Not sure if your child needs therapy to help with their communication skills? Reach out to us today, and we can talk through your concerns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

There’s a wide range of what’s expected when it comes to a child’s speech and language development. As a general rule of thumb, we expect kids to be understood by parents and close relatives about half of the time when they’re two years old, about 75% of the time when they’re three, and close to 100% of the time they’re four.

If you feel like you have a hard time understanding your child, there’s a good chance they would benefit from some testing. Plus, even if our speech-language pathologists find that your child’s skills are within an expected range, you’ll still get recommendations for how to help them continue to develop and strategies to work through any possible areas of relative weakness. A child who has been diagnosed with autism, a traumatic brain injury, or social communication disorders may require speech-language therapy. This is often the best way to address language delays in infants and young children.

Slow progress in speech therapy can be related to several causes. Still, two of the major reasons have to do with difficulty knowing how to make the sound or challenges related to getting enough repetition. Different articulation disorders and deficits affect people of all ages. However, addressing communication problems in young children means you need to look at their individual needs. When the problem is that the child has never learned how to make the sound, the solution is using various techniques to help them be successful with the components of how that sound is made—and our speech therapists are trained to do this. With the right tools, home practice teletherapy and in-person therapy practices can stand on equal footing and address specialized audiology and speech therapy needs.

You can get some ideas of tips and tricks that speech-language pathologists (SLPs) use by checking out the resources on our blog.

The second problem—not enough practice or repetition—causes issues in how the skill gets generalized into everyday speech. If kids don’t get enough practice to build muscle memory or automaticity of the skill, then they stay in therapy for a long time because they haven’t quite cleared the hurdle needed to graduate. That’s why we’ve created video games that allow them to practice their speech sounds. Once a kid knows how to produce their sound and has the motivation to practice as much as possible, progress follows!

Nope! You can discontinue telepractice services at any time you’d like or cancel a monthly subscription bill plan at any time as well. Please note that you’re billed at the start of a month, and we do not issue refunds after the bill has been processed. Therefore, if you cancel your subscription mid-month, you will still finish out that current month. This means it’s easy to access our speech therapy apps, speech therapists, and audiology experts when it works for you.
Yes! Just let your therapist know that you’d like to sign up for a set period of time, and they will certainly accommodate you or your family member. Our speech pathology practitioners work to set up a plan of care that works for your unique needs.

Verboso is currently in-network for United Healthcare and is willing to work with you to understand your insurance benefits and coverage.

The short answer is, it depends. If you’re traveling within the state, this could be possible, but keep in mind that you may consider if your child will have the most productive session if you are staying in a hotel with other siblings or family. If traveling out of state or outside of the United States, there may be licensing and regulatory considerations that would prevent your regular therapist from being able to hold the session. Plus, family time is important too, so you may prefer to reschedule. Talk with your practitioner in advance of any planned vacations and determine what scheduling preferences work best for your child and family.

Sure! Ask your therapist about adding an additional one time appointment if needed.

As long as you’ve followed our policy regarding timely reporting of the scheduling needs, your therapist can let you roll over an appointment to the next month. Please remember that if you miss an appointment without telling your therapist in advance, you are not eligible to reschedule that appointment on the monthly plan.

Our monthly subscription plan is great for kids who have a hard time pronouncing sounds because it’s designed based on what we know about motor learning, accent modification, and speech improvement. Learning the mouth movements that are needed to produce a sound a certain way can be hard, but it’s what your therapist is trained to do. Think of a coach teaching your child the technique to score a basket. The other half of the equation is practice, practice, practice.

Our games are designed to engage kids and make them want to come back for more speech practice in between sessions. Plus, our proprietary software allows the therapist to determine what types of productions your child needs to produce to progress through the games. This way, they learn the muscle automaticity needed for improved speech. Meeting with the therapist every other week allows them to check on progress and increase the complexity of the task. Think of it like a physical therapist adjusting the exercises you’re doing to help maximize your physical therapy efficiency. By building a program around motor learning principles, we’re able to have your child see the therapist when it’s most beneficial to them—at those points in the process when they need a skilled professional to help them try something harder to advance their skills. By looking at your child’s specific milestones, we can make better recommendations and adjustments.
