Frequently Asked Questions

What services do you offer? 

Currently, we offer a variety of speech/language therapy and consultation services. Please check the Services tab for information regarding specific treatment areas. Sessions either take place in your home or online via Zoom. Under certain circumstances, we may be able to provide services at your child's private school or daycare.

What areas do you service?

At this time, we travel to the following towns for in-person services: Weston, Wayland, Wellesley, and Newton. We also service parts of Boston, including the South Boston and Seaport District areas. If you are located somewhere close by, we still encourage you to contact us. Teletherapy services can be provided to anywhere within Massachusetts. 

What ages do you work with?

We work with children ranging from birth to 12 years old. We are happy to refer you to another practice if you do not meet this criteria.

Do you take insurance?

Aloha Speech is a private pay practice. We do not accept insurance, but we can provide a SuperBill for you to submit to your insurance. We always recommend contacting your insurance company to determine your coverage prior to your child’s first session.

What are the benefits of private pay?

No referral is needed! You do not need a referral from your child's pediatrician or another physician for services. With private pay services, sessions are child-focused and family-centered. Every aspect of therapy can be customized to your child's specific needs. Services can include direct therapy, parent coaching, as well as consultation with other providers including your child's IEP Team. In addition, private pay services do not restrict the number or type of sessions your child will receive, which insurance companies often do.  

What are your rates?

We accept private pay only. Please contact us to learn about our rates.

How long are sessions?

Sessions are either 30 or 45 minutes depending on your child's needs. At the end of each session, a free minute consultation is provided to parents as needed. 

How do we get started?

Contact Kathy to set up an initial consultation. We may need to meet and informally assess new clients in order to determine what type and frequency of therapy will best meet their needs.

Why "Aloha"?

 

​By definition of the Hawaiian Spirit Law, the “Aloha Spirit” is the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It brings each person to the self. Each person must think and emote good feelings to others.

 

​The aloha spirit is the driving force behind the interpersonal connection between child and clinician. The name Aloha Speech was chosen because it represents the guiding principles of our practice. We believe that embracing the aloha spirit is a successful technique that leads to increased progress in therapy. We encourage you too to embrace the aloha spirit.
