Navigating your child’s options can feel overwhelming. Our list of FAQs are here to help.

You do not need a doctor’s referral to access private speech and language services. If you have concerns with your child’s speech and language, please feel free to contact us. A brief phone consult at no charge will be provided in order to determine if an assessment is needed.

No, Speak Volumes is a private speech and language service and is not covered by OHIP. Some private insurance plans may cover the cost of sessions. Clients are provided with receipts when payment is received, which can be submitted to a private insurance plan if applicable. Your child may also be eligible for publicly-funded services through the Preschool Speech and Language Program or your Local Health Integration Network. Parents are encouraged to investigate these covered services by following the links below:

Payments can be made by cash, cheque or e-transfer. Payments are due immediately following each session.

Our fees are determined based on the Ontario Speech and Language Association fee schedule suggestion. However, we strive to keep our costs as low as possible to help ensure our services are accessible to families. Please contact us for our current rates.

A discussion regarding the  severity and areas of difficulty will take place after your child’s assessment. Depending on the concerns, the number of recommended sessions and frequency of sessions may differ. However, parents have the ability to decline further treatment at any time should they no longer have concerns with their child’s speech and language.
