In order to serve you better, The Therapy Place requires that you fill out a few forms on your first visit including a detailed health history, emergency contact information, and insurance information. For your convenience you can request these forms to be sent to you prior to your first appointment. Please bring your insurance card and identification on the day of your evaluation.

A through evaluation will be completed on your first visit. Evaluations can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 hour. Following the evaluation, if determined that speech therapy services are indicated we will go over a plan of care and therapy schedule that is best for you.
