Great Speech Inc. Strengthens Its Presence Nationwide with Medicare Enrollment

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Great Speech Inc., a national virtual speech therapy company committed to improving health equity for America's underserved seniors, today announced its affiliated clinical group Great Therapy Group LLC, has significantly increased the breadth and depth of its provider network nationwide by receiving its own Medicare number.

"With over 10,000 people turning 65 each day, this expansion will align Great Speech's therapists to support the senior population from the convenience of their home and on their schedule. No need to weather the storm, ask for favors or try to figure out how to get a ride to your nearby clinic," says Avivit Ben-Aharon, Founder and Clinical Director of Great Speech.

Our goal is to assist with social determinants of health since numerous studies indicate that communication skills of older adults are strong predictors of their mental health. Poor communication skills can not only evoke anxiety, depression, and stress in older adults but also predispose them to social isolation and loneliness (*citation).

Individuals eligible for Medicare Part B in 41 states can request a free screening today to determine eligibility and start services immediately.

Great Speech commonly treats: Alzheimer's & Dementia, Articulation disorders, Autism Spectrum disorder, Cognitive Communication Disorder, Head & Neck Cancer, Hearing loss, Language disorder, Parkinson's disorder, post-Covid complications, Stuttering, Stroke & Aphasia rehabilitation, Traumatic Brain Injury, Voice Disorder & More

Montclair Speech Therapy Expands Practice to New Facility to Better Service Its Patients’ Needs

CALDWELL, N.J. -- Montclair Speech Therapy, Northern New Jersey's premier private speech and occupational therapy practice for infants, toddlers, children, teenagers, and adults with speech, feeding, swallowing, and language disorders, announced today the expansion of their practice with an additional facility at 307 Bloomfield Avenue (The Wilson Building) in Caldwell, N.J.

The new offices are just down the street from the practice's existing space and will better accommodate the practice's growing roster of patients and additional staff. The practice will be keeping their 333 Bloomfield offices as well.

"Word has spread about the successful outcomes we're providing here at Montclair Speech Therapy," said Lori Caplan, licensed Speech Language Pathologist and co-founder of the practice. "Our new offices were specifically designed with patient need and comfort in mind. We're offering more suites, food prep stations, and wonderful new staff members, all in an iconic landmark building conveniently located along one of Essex County's most travelled corridors. We have also added a state-of-the-art sensory gym to accommodate the needs of our clients who are seen with our occupational therapists."

The Wilson Building, which once housed a major bank, has an entirely reconstructed interior and incorporated green technologies to make it energy efficient and healthier to reside in. A mix of residential, professional, and retail tenants occupy the building which is centrally located in the heart of Caldwell.

In addition to an expanded facility, patients will find more parking spaces and a convenient proximity to shops and restaurants. There's also a larger, more spacious waiting area, that, when health and safety conditions eventually allow, will give parents a place to watch their child's sessions via iPad and children can stream Disney+.

"Being able to design our space at The Wilson gave us a terrific opportunity to focus on the patient experience," said Ben Colon, the practice's co-founder and business manager. "We wanted to build a space where our patients could feel comfortable while working toward their goals, and I think we've really succeeded in that."

Montclair Speech Therapy's new offices are located at: The Wilson Building, 307 Bloomfield Avenue, Suite 201 in Caldwell, NJ. Their existing office is just steps away at 333 Bloomfield Avenue, Suite 102.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Great Speech, Inc., a pioneer in the online speech therapy space, has partnered with Ignyte Healthcare Strategies LLC to increase consumer access to much-needed virtual speech therapy services.

In response to the pandemic, Ignyte has launched a strategic Return to Work Plan to help governments, businesses and organizations re-open safely, resume normal operations, and maintain a healthy work environment.

"We strongly support the mission of the Return to Work program and are confident that offering speech and language telehealth services will reduce employee stress and parental anxiety while promoting strong return-to-work outcomes."

National Online Speech Therapy Company Creates Free Resource Library in Response to Pandemic

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. -- Great Speech, Inc., an online speech therapy company, saw a spike for service demand when the pandemic hit. Founder and Clinical Director, Avivit Ben-Aharon, MS Ed., MA CCC-SLP, also quickly realized that many consumers who desperately needed services, lacked the financial resources or insurance coverage to pay for online services.

With a strong desire to fill the void, Ben-Aharon along with her team of therapists, created a free resource library of how-to videos, eBooks and blogs with speech therapy exercises for children and adults.

"The pandemic has highlighted the strong need for online speech therapy services," Ben-Aharon explained. "Despite stay-at-home and stay-safe orders, we need to keep moving forward. Children who are out of school as well as seniors who are rehabbing from a health crisis such as a stroke, can quickly fall behind in their learning and/or recovery. These free learning and exercise resources empower people to continue to make communication improvements."

These free online speech therapy resources can help everyone from a child who stutters to an adult on the autism spectrum or a senior recovering from a traumatic brain injury. They are also ideal for the parent-turned-teacher for activities and exercises to practice at home. The technology really resonates with how more and more businesses are moving to remote and online operations.

The advantages of online speech therapy are endless. For example, a grandmother in Chicago who has suffered a stroke can connect online with a speech therapist from Houston, while her daughter in Cleveland monitors the session; or a therapist who moves out of town can still provide services to their clients and provide continuity of care.

Great Speech's highly-trained speech therapists provide effective techniques for everything from articulation and phonology to stuttering, voice therapy, aphasia and more. Each speech therapist holds a master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology; a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA); and is licensed by various state licensing boards.
