Speech Therapy

There are currently a limited number of slots remaining for children enrolled in the spring preschool/toddler programs. Currently, speech therapy services are provided remotely, with a few in-person spots available.

A limited number of teletherapy sessions will be available (p.m. slots only) for children who are NOT enrolled in the toddler or preschool programs. An introductory session is available free of charge to help you and your child get acquainted with the format and be sure this type of service delivery is a good fit for everyone. 30-minute sessions are $40.
