Speech Therapy Beverly Hills

1to1 Kid Talk provides Beverly Hills speech therapy for toddlers to 18 years old, children with speech delay, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), speech impediments, r sounds, s sounds, AAC devices, Down Syndrome, Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS).

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Not only can our team help you identify if your child is struggling with ASD, but we can also help your child work on their social habits through activity-based speech therapy. ASD can cause challenges in a child’s communication and social habits. Through various activities and play, children can begin to build relationships and express their needs and interests.

In some serious cases, a child with ASD will experience a loss of words among other symptoms. It is best to seek out an experienced speech therapist to help your child regain their speech and vocabulary.

Childhood Apraxia

Childhood Apraxia is a disorder where children struggle to perform the movements necessary for speech. It usually becomes apparent to parents between 18mo – 4yrs of age as these are the formative years children learn to talk.

While it isn’t known for certain, it is thought that childhood apraxia causes a child to have difficulty retrieving motor speech commands from their brain, and others theorize that the commands are not programmed correctly to begin with. In-home speech therapy with 1to1 Kid Talk can help alleviate these symptoms and help children develop speech skills quicker.

If your child has apraxia, 1 to 1 Kid Talk offers the best speech therapy Beverly Hills can provide.

How Does 1 on 1 Speech Therapy Work?

1to1 Kid Talk in-home speech therapy provides individualized, one-on-one therapy for children from the comfort of their own home or virtually for those who need it. Providing speech therapy in your home makes it is easier for kids to generalize their progress during speech therapy sessions to times when the kids are not in therapy. Therapy includes training for parents to equip them with the necessary skills to continue their children’s growth outside of individual sessions. Parents will gain the tools to create learning opportunities for their children in their everyday interactions so that they can maximize their time spent with their children. By involving parents and having a weekly plan for which specific skills to target, kids get to make more progress than in other settings. Children will develop new vocabulary and words throughout the day as parents and speech therapists work together.

How Often Are Sessions?

The number of sessions per week varies according to the plan of care. Sessions are typically 1-3 times per week.

Are The Therapists at 1to1 Kid Talk Licensed?

All our clinicians are licensed with the State of California and have national licenses from the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. Some of our therapists are also Board Certified Autism Specialists.

Do You Answer Questions and Provide Expert Opinions About Children's Speech or Do I Have to Schedule an Appointment?

Yes, we do answer questions and are happy to offer our opinion about your toddler or child’s speech. We would be delighted to speak to you and answer any of your questions. We provide free phone consultations and speech screenings. However, an online or in-person evaluation will give us the opportunity to interact with your child and determine if speech therapy is recommended.

How Do Evaluations Work?

1to1 Kid Talk does an initial home visit where an interview with parents regarding their child is conducted and an informal assessment is completed. Parents receive a recommended plan of care including a recommended number of sessions. If parents would like a formal written report can be provided to parents for an additional charge.

Do I Need a Referral to Receive Speech or Language Therapy?

In some cases, you may need a physician’s referral or prescription to receive therapy if you plan on submitting a superbill to your provider. Private-pay clients do not require a physician’s referral or prescription, however, our therapists may ask for one to keep on file.

Do You Take Insurance?

We do not accept insurance directly. Each family should check with their insurance provider and review their policy coverage and restrictions to see if your plan covers out of network speech therapy. Many insurance companies do reimburse payment for speech and language therapy services. While 1to1 Kid Talk is not a provider for any insurance company, we will provide a detailed monthly superbill that you may use to request reimbursement from your insurance company.

I’m Worried That My Child Will Not Be Ready for Kindergarten. Can You Help?

All parents want their child to start off kindergarten with the best possible chance of success. 1to1 Kid Talk will work with your child to improve their communication. We can also help with the transition to kindergarten by consulting with your child’s teacher.

How Do You Help and Work With Kids With ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)?

“The longer a child with Autism goes without intervention, the harder they are to reach.” (Byron, T. 2009)

The core deficits of autism are communication and social interaction. Speech-language pathologists earn a masters degree in communication disorders and are also specially trained to develop spoken and written language. Our therapists target these two areas to improve your child’s ability to connect and communicate with those around them. By utilizing advanced training from the PECS, Hanen Center and Social Thinking, our clinicians have the knowledge to provide your child with the best opportunity to improve. While every child with autism is an individual, the field of autism intervention has grown tremendously over the past 20-30 years, and if one treatment intervention does not work well for your child, there are many more available to try. For example, most children with Autism go through a stage of echolalia in their language development. Most children with Autism enjoy kinesthetic movement and music. Many are gestalt learners and learn new information such as the alphabet and numbers in chunks. We also know that the recommended amount of time of intervention for children with autism is 20 hours a week. For this reason, 1to1 Kid Talk works closely with parents to use strategies that will work at home and therefore generalize to time between sessions. Our goal at 1to1 Kid Talk is to help you connect and communicate better with your child. We also use the latest treatment approaches such as video modeling, naturalistic intervention, and AAC.

How Do You Help Kids With Apraxia?

Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a motor planning speech disorder. This can cause the child difficulty when planning the complex movements of the jaw, lips, tongue, and breath in order to speak. It can be difficult as a parent to watch your child struggle through these movements. It is just as difficult to find a professional who will fit into your and your child’s routine. We provide speech therapy in an environment that fits the easiest into your lifestyle, whether that be in-home sessions, daycare or school appointments, or online therapy. My treatment approach draws upon my masters degrees in communication disorders as well as additional trainings in CAS from experts in the field, such as Edythe Strand. Every child is different. That’s why we have experience working with children with multiple diagnosis, such as Autism and CAS. It’s important to me that I can help your child no matter what their diagnosis. 1to1 Kid Talk’s treatment sessions are highly focused and fun! They begin with maximum cues/prompts that fade as the child improves. As a parent, you are involved in the treatment process too. Parents and I work together to select target words each week. An effort is made to select target words that are socially powerful, such as “Hi”, “bye” and “More” in order to intrinsically motivate your child to communicate. I also follow ASHA best practice guidelines and encourage frequent practice for best results.
