Free Consults

Free consults for children (18 months - 12 years of age) will be offered in various locations throughout our programming year (September-May).

Consults are scheduled in 15-minute time slots (see below for availability). While the children are encouraged to engage in various activities, families will meet with a pediatric therapist, complete a checklist and learn strategies to help their child at home.

    The Virtual Speech and Language Consults are filled, but please register here for the waitlist. We will notify you if a spot becomes available before the event.

    You can join us in the virtual waitlist room the night of the program. Sign on and join the program at 6:30 pm. You'll be moved into a waitlist breakout room, and when a spot becomes available or a registered family does not sign on (which is common), we'll come into the breakout room to get you for your consult. No need to stay at your device while you wait; we can text or chat you to let you know a spot has become available. 

    This is not a guarantee of a consult spot, but at the very least, we can make sure you leave with resources to support your child.
