What kind of clients do you see at HOPE Therapies?

We work with children and adults of all ages, developmental levels, and a broad range of diagnoses. The following list covers just a few of the more common delays we address. 

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

  • Auditory Processing Disorder

  • Apraxia of Speech

  • Self-Regulation/ Executive Functioning Delays

  • Feeding/ Swallowing Issues

  • Expressive & Receptive Language Disorder

  • Social/ Pragmatic Delays

  • Phonological Disorder

We figured this was a long enough list to start. We regularly see clients with concerns outside of this list. 

Is my child a late talker? Should they see a Speech Therapist? 

Children have stages of speech and language development that are consistent across the board. The exact age your child will reach each stage can vary based on several factors. We recommend that if you are concerned about your child's language development, you reach out for a consultation as early as possible. It is better to address this earlier before a child falls farther behind developmental goals. 

What is HOPE Therapies' approach to increase communication in individuals with Autism? 

We have found that every individual with autism needs a unique approach to increase communication.

During a initial consultation/screening, Joselynne will craft a specialized language development plan. Instead of a one size fits all model, which often neglects the dynamic nature of communication, Joselynne and her team will use an individual's personality and interests to make speech therapy fun, engaging, and effective.  


Insurance & Payment

Will my insurance cover speech therapy?

The short answer is that it depends.

  • Most insurance plans provide higher coverage and lower co-pays for in-network therapy.

  • HOPE Therapies is an out of network provider for those with PPO insurance.

  • We will work with you/your family to check your eligibility for coverage.

  • We can provide appropriate documentation of the speech-language services received.

  • We accept out-of-pocket payments/direct payment clients.
