Autism Screening Sessions:
Autism Screening/Consultation Sessions are 75 minute sessions held within the family's own environment. The cost includes therapist observation of the child and a parent interview. Additionally, the cost includes discussion around potential autism "red flags," recommended next steps for the family, lists of community resources as well as helpful strategies for best supporting the child's individual needs. *Please note, this is not the same as clinical diagnostic testing and will not qualify your child with a diagnosis of autism*

Individual therapy sessions billed to Premera are 30 minutes long. The only services we bill Premera for are individual speech therapy sessions and speech and language evaluations.
At this time, the Social Skills Laboratory is not contracted with any other insurance companies and does not bill other insurances directly; however, we are happy to provide families with a detailed invoice/superbill of each therapy session that you may then submit to your own insurance company for potential reimbursement after the fact. We also accept most HSA cards for some services.We cannot provide any guarantee of any kind of insurance reimbursement, so please speak with your insurance company prior to beginning speech therapy services. Also, please note that our peer/friendship groups are education-based services and are not eligible for insurance reimbursement or coverage.
