FAQ

What is the process to get started with therapy or an evaluation?

We are happy to speak with you to discuss your concerns, answer your questions, and provide you with more information about our services. Please call us directly at (773)-827-4495 to schedule a complimentary consultation call with one of our Speech-Language Pathologists or to schedule an appointment.

-How do I get started?

Our process is simple.  If your child has not had a recent evaluation in the past six months we will schedule a comprehensive evaluation that provides us with an in-depth communication profile of your child’s current speech and language skills. Following the evaluation, we will determine whether therapy is warranted and set up services.  We need to meet and evaluate new clients in order to determine what type and frequency of therapy will best meet your child’s needs.

-Can we do an informal evaluation if my child was recently evaluated?

Yes.  If you have a recent (six months or less) speech-language evaluation we will ask you to share that with us when we meet with your child in order to do an informal evaluation to see if the goals/treatment decision continues meet your child’s needs.

Will you communicate with my child’s school, other therapist, and/or pediatrician?

We love collaborating with outside schools, providers, and medical professionals. We are happy to email or schedule phone consultations with
any member of your child’s team (in most cases free of charge).

-How OFTEN WILL YOU SEE MY CHILD?

Sessions are typically between 30-45 minutes in length depending on the needs of the client.
Clients are seen anywhere from 1-3 times per week depending on their communication needs and the results of the assessment (i.e. testing). We work with clients and families all over the Chicagoland area and neighboring suburbs. We strive to go above and beyond to bring convenient therapy to you and offer in-home or community-based speech and language therapy.

Do you take insurance?

BCBS PPO: Inclusive Speech & Language Services, LLC. is a BCBS PPO provider. We are happy to bill your BCBS PPO plan for speech-language therapeutic services. However, not all BCBS PPO plans cover speech therapy. Prior to calling for your initial evaluation, we ask that you 

1) check with BCBS to verify your speech-language therapy coverage

2) determine if you need a referral from a physician, and

 3) find out what exclusions your policy may have.

CO-PAYS and CO-INSURANCE: Many BCBS PPO plans have co-pays or co-insurance.  These are due on the day services are rendered.

OUT OF POCKET: Please call or email for our out of pocket rates.  We are willing to work with your family in order to provide the services your child needs to foster his/her communication skills for future success.
