Questions about Speech & Language Therapy?
We can help
Are your services covered by health insurance?
Our fees are competitive and follow the recommended fee schedule from the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA). Our fees are discussed at the time of referral. Clients are responsible to pay directly on a per session basis. Our services are not covered by OHIP; however, many clients have extended (supplemental) health care plans that provide partial or full coverage for speech and language services. You are encouraged to check with your benefit plan for this coverage.
Do I need a doctor's referral?
A doctor's referral is not necessary for a speech and language assessment or treatment. It may be required, however, by your extended health care plan for reimbursement of fees.
How long are sessions? How long will therapy be required?
Assessment sessions are typically 1-2 hours in length. This allows for the necessary testing to be completed, as well as time to review the assessment findings and recommendations.
Therapy sessions are typically one hour in length. This includes work with the client, as well as consultation with clients, parents or carwegivers to discuss progress, strategies and home programming. It is strongly encouraged that parents or caregivers are involved in the therapy so they may continue the therapy goals at home and incorporate them into daily routines.
The length of time therapy is required varies and depends on a variety of factors, including the nature and severity of the problem and home practice. Home practice is a significant factor in overall progress.
