Making Waves provides individualized speech, language, and feeding therapy, consultations, and evaluations by a highly experienced, certified and licensed speech and language pathologist. 

Services

We provide assessment, therapy, and consultations for a variety of difficulties, delays, and disorders including but not limited to:

  • Feeding and Swallowing Disorders and Difficulties (e.g., oral phase deficits, the “picky eater” with atypical eating behaviors including food selectivity/refusal and negative reactions to food, a co-existing medical etiology resulting in problems with acceptance of solids and/or liquids, chewing and/or swallowing difficulties)

  • Receptive Language Disorders (understanding of spoken language such as for attending to information, following directions, answering questions)

  • Expressive Language Disorders (producing language such as length and complexity of sentences, vocabulary)

  • Articulation and Phonological Productions/Speech Sound Productions (e.g., articulation errors, phonological processes, intelligibility and clarity of speech, apraxia)

  • Pre-linguistic communication (joint attention, intentionality, communicative gesturing)

  • Developmental Disabilities (e.g., specific language impairment, attention-deficit disorder)

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger Syndrome

  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)

  • Pragmatic communication (social and functional use of language)

  • Fluency (stuttering; cluttering)

 

All services are provided in the comfort and convenience of your home.

We have chosen to remain an out-of-network provider and not take insurance directly for the following reasons:

  • The insurance industry has become more about making money than about providing the best quality of care for its clients.

  • In order for insurance companies to continuously rationalize their denial of or limit of care for a client to receive, many companies have become intrusive into the kinds of information they request as well as often to the detriment of the therapy process (e.g., demanding repeated formal testing that would then have to occur during therapy session appointments and thus precluding the client from receiving the actual therapy they need).

We can contact your insurance company and ask specifically about your out-of-network benefits for speech, language, and/or feeding therapy with a certified and licensed speech and language pathologist to find out if you are eligible for reimbursement. We can provide you with a monthly invoice specifically to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement that will include receipt of payments, code(s) of the service(s) provided, and diagnosis.
