At Indy Speech Services, we pride ourselves in making sure each of our specialists aligns properly with not only the speech and language goals that we want your child to meet, but also in the relationship that is built. Establishing rapport with a child is essential to making good progress in therapy. We ensure that your family is paired with a coach that fits your needs.
We provide services in the comfort of your home because we believe kids are most at ease in a comfortable environment. Kids feel secure and safe in their home, making them more natural, which helps us navigate their communication goals faster. Therapy at home also provides us ample opportunities to train parents and caretakers, nannies and babysitters along with grandparents and siblings!
a team built with you in mind.
