Welcome to Sunny Day Pediatric Speech & Feeding Therapy

I love working with children and families! My goal is to help your child reach their goals by providing research-based therapy and a big dose of fun.

Speech and Language

Let me help your child develop speech and language skills in an evidenced-based, child-centered environment. Parent education is provided to help you help your child learn to communicate.

Feeding

I have worked with children from toddlers to teenagers and young adults to learn to expand their variety of foods eaten and to develop oral motor skills to make eating easier. Family education is integral to this therapy.

 

Frequently asked questions

Where are you?

Sunny Day Speech is located in my home in a bright and sunny walk-out basement that opens onto a patio and flower garden midway between Lowell and Ada, just off M21.

What is the method of payment?

  • I am an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies. I will provide monthly invoices with all necessary insurance reimbursement information. Please contact your insurance company for any additional requirements and to understand your coverage. 

  • ASHA provides more information on reimbursement for speech therapy at:  ASHA's Insurance Page .

  • If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) let’s discuss how to use your deposits to become reimbursed for your sessions.

  • Payment for service is due at the time of your child’s visit.

How long are the sessions?

  • Therapy sessions are 30, 45 or 60 minutes long depending on your child’s needs and the therapy provided (feeding therapy typically takes at least 45 minutes per session).

  • Each session includes parent education at the close of the session. For example a 30 minute session consists of 25 minutes of direct therapy and 5 minutes of parent education/documentation. Longer sessions allow for 10 minutes of parent education/documentation at the close of each session. 

What do I do during my child’s therapy?

  • Parents are welcome to observe, join in or wait in the lounge area.

  • I ask that parents join in all feeding sessions to promote carry over of methods to home.

  • If you have other children who will be with you, there is space with books and other quiet activities to keep them entertained during sessions.
