In-network provider for most major insurances 
Due to the Shelter-In-Place notice, Language Essentials' San Ramon and Livermore offices will be temporarily closed.  Our fully functioning tele-therapy solution is in place to serve our clients during this, hopefully, short disruption.  We also have immediate openings for new clients needing services.
Language Essentials is a proud member/contributor to Therapy for Heroes. 
 This group provides free speech, occupational and physical therapy to
 health care workers during this crisis.
**************Teletherapy Now Available************** 
Language Essentials is providing several hundred teletherapy sessions per week while our clinics are closed.  These sessions have proven to be very effective and allow patients to continue their therapy programs from the safety of their own homes. We are licensed to provide therapy anywhere within California. Teletherapy is covered by most medical insurances and Medicare.
