Helpful Information

Billing & Insurance

At this time, Spark Pediatric Therapy does not accept insurance. We are an out-of-network provider accepting private-pay clients. Upon request, we will provide you with a superbill as a statement of your services. You can submit the superbill on your own behalf to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. It is highly recommended that you check with your insurance company to determine what out-of-network speech services are included in your plan. A doctor's referral is not needed for an evaluation or services at Spark Pediatric Therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my child needs speech or language therapy?

If you're wondering whether your child needs speech or language therapy, consider the following questions*:

  • Is your child having difficulty meeting speech and language milestones?

  • Do others have difficulty understanding your child?

  • Does your child struggle with certain sounds?

  • Is your child having difficulty following directions or understanding what is being said?

  • Is your child having difficulty asking or answering questions?

  • Does your child have limited words or difficulty combining words into phrases?

  • Does your child struggle to interact with others in social situations?

  • Does your child have a condition, such as a genetic disorder or autism spectrum disorder, that may increase their risk for a speech/language disorder?​

 

*It is important to note that these are general areas of concern, and the best way to determine if your child needs an evaluation or therapy is to schedule a complimentary phone consultation.

How do I know if my child needs feeding therapy?

If you're wondering whether your child needs feeding therapy, consider the following questions:

  • Are mealtimes stressful or exhausting for your family?

  • Does your child eat a very limited diet, eating less than 30 different foods and often refusing certain foods/preferring certain brands?

  • Does your child gag, vomit, spit food out, and/or cough often during meals?

  • Does your child have difficulty tolerating foods on their plate or the smell of many different foods?

  • Do you experience pain while nursing, or is your baby struggling with bottle feeding?

  • Is your child struggling with the transition from breast or bottle feeding to eating solid food?

These are general areas of concern, so it is best to schedule a complimentary phone consultation to discuss your child's specific needs and determine if an evaluation or therapy is recommended. 

How do I get started?

To get started with speech therapy or feeding therapy, fill out our online contact form below. We will reach out to you to schedule a complimentary 15-minute consultation call to discuss your concerns, answer your questions, and determine if a speech, language, or feeding evaluation is recommended. 

Do you require an evaluation to begin speech therapy or feeding therapy?

All new clients must be evaluated prior to beginning speech or feeding therapy unless an evaluation has occurred in the last six months in the areas of concern. We believe that evaluations are crucial in guiding our treatment process to ensure the best possible outcomes in therapy.

What is your cancellation policy?

While Spark Pediatric Therapy understands that illnesses and emergencies occur, we respectfully request that you avoid frequent cancellations or “no-shows.” We require 24-hour notice to avoid a cancellation fee. Whenever possible, we will work with the family to move in-person sessions to teletherapy to ensure there is no disruption in care. Advance notification for any cancellations resulting from a conflicting appointment, vacation, obligations for work or family, or any other event is always appreciated. Please refer to our cancellation policy in your intake paperwork for additional information.
