Therapy services

& pricing

Do you know a child who has a hard time communicating? Our speech-language pathologists treat a wide variety of communication impairments, from problems with articulation, like difficulty saying an /s/ or /r/ sound, to challenges with thinking of the words they want to say, or other language problems.

Our process

Have questions about our services? Feel free to set up an initial, free consultation appointment with a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist. We learn about you, your child, and your goals for your child’s therapy.

From there, we can talk about which services you'd like to try for your child. Not sure if your child needs therapy to help with communication? Reach out to us today and we can talk through your concerns.

Frequently asked questions

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 when 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. If you have specific questions, please contact Amy at [email protected] 

Our monthly subscription plan is great for kids who have a hard time with pronunciation of sounds because it’s designed based on what we know about motor learning. Learning the movements of the mouth that are needed to produce a sound a certain way can be hard, and 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 in order 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 personal trainer adjusting the exercises you’re doing to help maximize your work out time in between. 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.

Slow progress in speech therapy can be related to a number of causes, but two of the major reasons have to do with either difficulty knowing how to make the sound, or challenges related to getting enough repetition. 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! ​

You can get some ideas of tips and tricks that 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 just 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 they can, progress follows! ​

Absolutely! Your therapist will work with you to determine what sort of frequency will work best for your child’s speech and your family’s needs.

Nope! You can discontinue services at any time you’d like or cancel a monthly subscription 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 payment has been processed—so, if you cancel your subscription mid-month, you will still finish out that current month.

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!

Currently, access to our games includes participating in sessions with one of therapists. This ensures that your therapist can create a customized reinforcement plan for your child that will be delivered via the game. However, we are introducing an option to purchase our games separately in the near future.

At this time, Verboso does not submit claims to insurance carriers. However, we will provide you with any documentation needed if you would like to submit directly to your company for reimbursement.

The short answer is, it depends. If you’re travelling within state, this could be possible, but keep in mind that if you’ll be staying in a hotel with other siblings or family, you may consider if your child will have the most productive session. If travelling out of state, there may be licensing and regulation 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 therapist in advance of any planned vacations and determine what scheduling arrangement works 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 (so you would have one 30-minute session in Month A and three 30 minute sessions in Month B). 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.
