To our Ocean Speech Families:

We are excited to announce Ocean Speech and Learning Center will re-open on June 1, 2020 to resume in-person therapy sessions in a phased approach. We are excited to welcome you back!

Rest assured we are following state and CDC recommendations for best practices involving hygiene and infection control. We are confident we can see our patients and provide the exceptional care you have always received in the past.

Effective immediately, the following are the guidelines and policies that will be in place:

  • Do not come to the office if you are experiencing symptoms of an illness or have been in contact with someone who has been sick recently.
  • Magazines and toys have been removed from our waiting area.
  • In order to follow social distancing guidelines, we are limiting the number of people in our waiting room. We are extending our waiting room to our hallway and ask that you wait in your car until your child’s session is complete.
  • Appointment times will be adjusted to allow for social distancing between patients. Sessions will be decreased to 30 minutes of direct therapy.
  • We will use contactless thermometers to check temperatures before the start of a session for both the therapist and patient.
  • Our staff has been supplied with face shields for use during sessions.
    We have moved to contactless payment procedures.
  • Cash/Check – We will supply envelopes for check and cash payments that can be placed in our lock box which is located next to the reception window.
  • Credits cards will be kept on file and will be charged after your session before the end of our day.
  • We will continue to clean and sanitize all surfaces and materials used in our therapy sessions in between clients, as well as, all common areas.

Our team misses your smiling faces and we appreciate the trust you have given us over the years to care for your children. It is our passion and we can’t wait to see you again in person soon!

We will continue to update patients and their families using our text and email systems. We will also post updates to our website and social media pages. If you would like to join our email list please visit our “Contact Us” page to submit your email address.

Stay safe!

Latest COVID-19 updates

Dear Ocean Speech Families,

During this unprecedented time, I wanted to reach out to you directly with some updates from Ocean Speech and Learning Center. In accordance with the Governor’s stay-at-home order, our office is still closed for therapy sessions. UPDATE: Office opening June 1st. Based on current COVID-19 guidance, we anticipate resuming office operations and in-person sessions on May 18th. We will implement new processes which we will communicate soon.  When we reopen, we will implement new hygiene guidelines with a modified schedule to keep everyone safe. 

Like many medical offices, we are reviewing options for video therapy sessions but are unable to implement them at this time. The State of NJ is working on protocols for this service to adhere to privacy and security laws. We will provide an update once we receive this guidance. We’ll also help you determine if this option fits your child’s treatment plan and work to provide alternate arrangements as needed.  

Stay tuned for future updates via email, here on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We plan to provide resources and fun activities for our kids so take this time to follow us on social media. 

I want to personally thank you for being part of our Ocean Speech family. My team and I truly miss seeing you at our office and can’t wait until we can see each other in person again! Until then, we remain committed to excellent care for your children and are available as a resource during this time. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for support and questions. 

Stay safe!
