One of the great challenges of having a communication disorder is the feeling of "Nobody else I know has this problem." Working through your communication struggles alongside others is an incredibly powerful change-maker. There are several advantages to group therapy, including support, accountability, and peer feedback.
Groups are open to everybody, from the newbie who has never received speech therapy, to the expert on social communication just looking for a tune-up. You do not have to be enrolled in individual therapy at speech IRL, but best outcomes come from simultaneous participation in both group and individual sessions.
In individual sessions, you and your clinician will create a treatment plan, set goals, and learn new skills that you can reinforce and practice in group sessions.
No. This is not a speech therapy treatment program, and as such is not eligible for reimbursement by insurance.
Some employers may pay for this type of program as part of "communication training" or "professional development". speech IRL encourages participants to let your employer know that you have signed up for this course, and determine if partial or full reimbursement is possible. We can provide you and/or your employer with receipts and records as needed to facilitate this arrangement.
Please leave a phone number! The course instructor will reach out to confirm your registration and discuss your goals for the program. It is highly important to us that each of our clients get the most out of our programs. Additionally, if you are able, we’d highly encourage you to come in for a free consultation to make sure this is the right fit.
