Welcome to our Practice

Welcome to Dallas Reading and Language Services, our special speech therapy clinic where we help children experience success, in school and in life!  At DRLS we “Embrace the Amazing” in every Child!  Our Speech Language Therapists passionately help clients accept their gifts, as well as develop tools and skills needed to move through their challenges.

As speech therapists, we know that children with speech language delays and disorders are at a higher risk of having learning difficulties.  Working directly with reading and written language, within a hierarchy alongside functional goals, is the missing piece that can give these kids a way to get caught up, and to keep up in school as their progress generalizes to stronger academic language skills.

Dallas Reading and Language Services is a special training ground, where we all are discovering how to more deeply embrace a “whole child intervention” practice, with results that are at times no less then astonishing.

What is the process to enroll my child in speech therapy?

Though this process can change based on insurance requirements (and client requirements), the intake process is generally as follows:

The first visit is a free screening where we determine if there is a need to proceed forward with an evaluation and what your child's strengths and weaknesses are.

If evaluation is recommended, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine necessary goals, frequency of therapy, and to develop a plan of care.

Once insurance has deemed Speech-Language therapy as a "medically necessary" service, we are able to schedule regular visits

Private pay clients and some patients with private insurances are able to expedite the therapy process by beginning therapy immediately, sometimes within the same week as the evaluation.
