Employee Assistance Programs
For adults, some companies have Employee Assistance programs that may help with full or partial funding. Several former New England Fluency Therapy Program clients have funded their participation through these types of programs, coming from such varied industries as Biotech, Finance, Marketing, and Computer Technology.
Coverage for services varies from policy to policy. The American Speech and Hearing Association, The National Stuttering Association, and The Stuttering Foundation have all developed guidelines in the area of working with insurance companies to seek coverage and reimbursement for speech therapy for stuttering.
