Physician/provider order form for Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) services

Thank you for entrusting Boston Children’s Hospital to partner with you on your patient’s care. The Center for Communication Enhancement offers the following programs with speech-language pathology services:

If you are a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner with a patient who requires non-urgent speech-language pathology services in one of the Center for Communication Enhancement programs, please complete, print, and fax the form below to 617-730-6213. The Center for Communication Enhancement will contact the family within five business days to schedule an appointment or begin a scheduling intake process, when applicable, and close the loop with your practice.

This form is required to be completed for each new patient referral and for re-evaluation referral requests after 60 days from the original request. This form does not replace and is not an insurance referral request form, which is a separate document. If you have any further questions regarding this new process, please call 781-216-2200.
