Frequently Asked Questions
Does My Child Need An Evaluation?

If your child has had an evaluation from another provider in the past year, or currently receives speech therapy services via an IEP or IFSP, your child does not need an evaluation.

How often will my child have therapy?

The number of therapy sessions for your child will be determined by the severity and diagnosis of the speech and/or language disorder.

What ages do you work with?

I work with children from 12 months to 11 years old.

Will you go to my child's daycare?

Yes! If your daycare or preschool allows, I will gladly provide therapy at that location. I can also provide therapy at any community location including the park or playground.

Do You Take Insurance?

No, Bright Beginnings Speech Therapy is currently an out-of-network, private pay entity. We accept credit, debit and HSA/FSA. Payment is due at time of service.


If you choose to seek reimbursement from your insurance company, Bright Beginnings can provide a superbill upon your request. Please contact your insurance company directly to determine any out-of-network coverage for speech-language therapy.


Being private pay allows Bright Beginnings the freedom and flexibility to provide services without any red tape from insurance companies. In comparison to the insurance company who tells YOU how many sessions are approved, you and I decide the frequency of therapy based on your child’s needs. With private pay, there are no regulations or restrictions over preauthorizations, continuation of services or referrals from pediatricians. We are able to start therapy as soon as you and your child are ready to commit.

What Are your rates?

Comprehensive speech-language evaluations are $250.


The length of therapy sessions are determined by the nature and severity of the speech-language impairment. Sessions are typically either 30 or 45 minutes. A 30-minute session is $75 and a 45-minute session is $100.


Therapy is conveniently located in your home or desired location.
