Our Process


The Speech-Mechanic offers affordable, life-changing solutions to individuals with speech and language challenges.  The process to get started is very simple. 

Getting Started

An initial appointment can be scheduled by calling 704-909-2824 or by doing  so on-line.  No referral is necessary.  Someone will be delighted to talk with you  about your concerns and help you learn about the many options that are available.

What to expect 

Depending on the outcome of the initial meeting,  a speech screening may be administered  to determine if a comprehensive evaluation is  needed.  The evaluation will be useful  in identifying and describing the nature of the communication disorder.  

Once  an assessment has been completed, a follow-up meeting will take place to review the test results and to make the appropriate recommendations.   Every clinical decision and action  is driven by evidence based research, collected data, and  by the client's input.  


The Speech Mechanic is an out-of-network provider, therefore you pay us directly. We provide you with a monthly receipt of paid services. Then, you submit this to your insurance company for reimbursement.


If you are interested in using your insurance, please call your insurance company to verify coverage to receive reimbursement for "out of network" services. Verify if you have a PPO plan or out-of-network benefits for speech and language therapy before you call The Speech Mechanic. Many families who have the following plans take advantage of their out-of-network benefits: Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield,  Aetna,  and United.​
