Payment Options

While we accept insurance and self-payment, we also have a sliding fee scale for families who income-qualify. It is our goal to be a resource to all individuals in our community. If you would like to apply for a fee reduction, or have insurance questions, please contact Marla Williams at or 423.622.6900 ext 201.

*We offer onsite speech and hearing screenings for children at area private schools, pre-schools, and childcare centers. Participation in these screenings requires parental permission and a nominal fee. Parents are provided with written results and recommendations the day of the screening, which outline their child’s speech and language development, as well as their hearing status. To schedule the Speech & Hearing Center to come out to your institution, please call Carla Wiksell at 423.622.6900 or email her at
