Talk Tools Oral Motor Clinic
Conducted by Renee Roy-Hill M.S., CCC-SLP
If you are not familiar with Talk Tools or Oral Placement (Motor) Therapy, you can watch the video below by Sara Rosenfeld-Johnson who is the founder of this methodology.
You will be given the scheduling information along with your confirmation letter. Scheduling will start soon. To schedule an appointment you will be required to view a Talk Tools introductory video. Please allow a couple of weeks for viewing as we have a few copies to share between new families. Appointments will only be confirmed once the video has been viewed.
Neither The Foundation or Talk Tools process insurance forms, however, if you are covered by a program that allows you to go 'out of network' some of the cost for your evaluation MAY be covered. It is up to each parent to check with their insurance company to see if this is possible. We request that you do that because if it is possible to cover a portion of your expense then we can offer even more families scholarship money for the clinic. Please note: if you have insurance and your child has any history of feeding difficulties (gagging, reflux, choking, and food aspiration/pneumonia) or you have a plan that covers Speech Therapy, the evaluation or program plan update may be covered. We recommend you verify in advance and to include a letter from your doctor when your insurance paperwork is submitted. Please be mindful that it is the family’s responsibility to contact their health provider, as Renee can only accept payment (what is not covered by the scholarship) directly from the family (in the form of a personal check, Visa, MasterCard or American Express).
Talk Tool's Cancellation Policy
Please note the typical way the clinics work is with a “21-day cancellation notification” policy, which means they require, a minimum 3 weeks notice for any cancellation. Since our program is happening so quickly ONLY REGISTER IF YOU ARE CERTAIN YOU CAN ATTEND. Our goal is to keep costs down for the families, we make airline reservations approximately 1 month prior to travel so that we may take advantage of optimal travel fares. Failure to cancel per the standard guidelines will result in a charge of $150.00. This policy is implemented in an effort to avoid further financial burden to the families who honor their commitment and the impact caused by the last-minute withdrawal of a family from the schedule.
