what we do

Areas of Practice + Rates


screenings + initital telephone consultations

We do speech-language and hearing screenings for students in schools in order to identify children who may require a more extensive evaluation for issues that may interfere with their learning and interpersonal relationships. We also offer telephone consultations with parents and pediatricians to discuss the possibility that a child may benefit from a full evaluation.

Rates: No charge


speech-language therapy

Speech-language therapy sessions usually last just under an hour with a brief follow-up conversation with the parent or caregiver or classroom teacher. 

Rates: $125 per hour


teletherapy

We offer speech-language pathology services to clients who cannot come to Williamstown, Massachusetts via secure, HIPPA-compliant video chat. This service is available to anyone in Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island and any non-English speaking country outside of the United States.

Rates: Minimum of $375 for evaluation + $125 per hour for therapy


evaluations

Effective therapy is predicated upon a careful evaluation and an accurate diagnosis. Speech-language evaluations include a review of a child's educational and medical history, clinical observation, standardized testing, and interviews with parents, caregivers, and teachers. Every evaluation results in a written report with actionable recommendations for home and school. Andrea’s reports have been praised by parents, healthcare professionals, and educators as clearly written and extremely practical.

Rates: Minimum of $375 / usually about $500 depending upon nature of the case
