  • Choice of elective services (Accent Modification, Social Skills Groups, “It Takes Two to Talk” The Hanen Program, etc.) which constitutes private pay.lity
  • Need a doctor’s order/Plan of Care for non-elective services.
  • Sessions can typically be 30-45 minutes depending on the type of treatment.

Educational Setting:

  • SLP can service students in a group and/or individual.
  • Eligibility has to be educationally relevant.
  • No elective services
  • Need an IEP (Individualized Educational Program) to receive speech-language services
  • Amount of time is decided by an IEP  committee (SLPs, teachers, parents, administrators, and any other authorized committee member)
  • Sessions are dictated by what is documented in the IEP
