What is Speech Therapy?
Speech therapists work with children and young adults who have a variety of communication difficulties and speech disorders. Therapy often focuses on the client’s ability to produce speech sounds correctly and fluently as well as mastering the ability to understand others. Speech therapists also help clients practice communicating in social situations by helping them organize their thoughts during conversation and learn how to utilize necessary problem solving skills during interactions with others. In some cases, the speech therapist may provide and train clients and their caregivers in the use of augmentative and alternative communication devices, also known as AAC devices.
How do I pay for Speech Therapy?
Meaningful Day Services is in-network with most private insurance companies and Medicaid plans. When speech therapy services are denied by insurance and Medicaid providers, Medicaid Waiver may be utilized as a funding source. Our team of insurance specialists are available to assist families with their individual questions about each funding source.
