Frequently Asked Questions
What is your attendance and cancellation policy?

Consistency of attendance is very important to the process of therapy. In the event a session needs to be canceled, clients should notify their direct therapist of the cancellation within 24 hours of the start of services for anything other than emergency or illness. Cancellations must be made with 24 hours notice or a $50 cancellation fee will be incurred.  Insurance cannot be billed for this fee.  Advanced notice allows us the ability to offer appointments to another client, as well as show courtesy toward the therapist. Cancellations for a client illness must be made by 9:00 am the day of their appointment.  Any call outs for illness made after 9:00 am will be charged a cancellation fee.

What happens if we miss a scheduled session?

Makeup sessions will be offered for all missed sessions. 

How will I be billed for services?

Any patient responsibility is due at the time of service. The office will verify your therapy coverage through insurance prior to services. However, we recommend that you also verify your benefits with your insurance provider. Any outstanding balance not paid by insurance is the patient's responsibility. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.

Where will services be provided?

Speech therapy services are provided in our 3 convenient center locations: Morganville, Monore, and Princeton NJ.

ABA Therapy is offere in client's homes (Mercer, Middles, Monmouth counties), in our therapy centers (Morganville, Monroe, Princeton), at private daycares, and/or in the community (e.g., grocery store, library, etc.).

Is an evaluation required prior to services beginning?

Yes, all clients will need to have an initial assessment conducted by one of our therapists.

Can I drop my child off and come back when the session is over?

Yes, parents are not required to stay at the center during their child's sessions. Parents might be asked to stay in the building in the event that there are no other employees in the building at the time of your child's service. For in-home visits, someone over the age of 18 must be present at all times during ABA sessions. 

Can we continue therapy after our insurance benefits run out?

Yes, we do offer private pay rates for both Speech and ABA therapy if we are not in-network with your insurance carrier.

Contact us for rates.

How long will my child need therapy?

Each client receives services on an individualized basis, meaning that the amount of therapy needed for your child depends on the recommendations made by the therapist.

Will you collaborate with my child's other therapists?

The Speech Tree uses a collaborative, inter-disciplinary approach. Each center offers Speech, Physical, and Occupational Therapy services. If your child receives these services elsewhere, your therapist will work to ensure there is consistency across all programs and therapies. 

How many hours of therapy will my child need?

Each Speech and ABA therapy program is individualized. This is determined by the therapist.

Do you offer teletherapy? What are the benefits of online therapy?

We provide teletherapy, or virtual therapy services, although we generally recommend in-person therapy for children because it emphasizes a hands-on learning approach.

 

However, upon mutual agreement between the therapist and the family regarding the suitability of teletherapy for the child, we deliver tailored, interactive, engaging, and effective services to meet their specific needs.
