How long will my child be in therapy?

A child’s speech and language development depends on factors such as age, attention span, willingness to participate, underlying etiology of the diagnosis, severity of the speech-language problem, frequency of therapy sessions, regular attendance, family involvement, and at-home practice.

We will monitor your child’s progress and make adjustments to their treatment plan when necessary. Some children may receive services for a few months, while other children receive services for years, as they work up to more complex communication goals.

How often will my child need therapy?

The frequency of sessions is up to you as the caregiver. We can provide speech therapy as frequent (multiple times a week), or infrequent (every other week) as you would like. After your evaluation, The Child Inspired will provide a recommendation based on the needs of your child, and together we will discuss and agree upon a frequency that works with your preference and lifestyle.

How long are therapy sessions?

The length of our Huntersville, NC speech therapy sessions are based on individual needs. 

One-on-one therapy sessions are 30-45 minutes in length including parent education. We will review information learned in the previous session before learning new material. We will provide “homework” to ensure the carry-over of skills learned throughout our sessions into your child’s daily routines.

Our Happy Clients

Hear from our clients on their experience with The Child Inspired

"Alyssa has worked with my ten year old son for a few months now for speech. She is thorough in her evaluation and explains all of the steps that she takes for each session and her goals for his progress. He has learned so much already and has showed improvement in a short amount of time. He enjoys his sessions with her because she makes it fun for him while she is teaching him the tools to use for improved speech. We highly recommend her to anyone!"

-Sharon B.

"We LOVE working with Alyssa and we're so grateful for her. We have been working with her for a little less than a year, starting with parent coaching sessions. Our two-year-old has gone from saying two words to now regularly communicating with us using both words and sign language. As worried parents, we can't express how knowledgeable and helpful Alyssa is. Alyssa makes it easy to implement new strategies and is there to coach you (as the parent) through them. She is always there to answer questions, offer advice, and to help your child have fun, while also gaining confidence and new vocabulary. We can't recommend Alyssa + The Child Inspired enough!!"

-Claire M.

"Working with Alyssa was the highlight of our week. She made the process so easy and comfortable for our daughter and we saw results almost immediately. I highly recommend The Child Inspired!"
