Kelly Ott has a Speech Therapy practice that is out of network with everyone.


Her practice is called Speech Pathology Services which is located in central Missouri. Listen in to see how she built her business and some unique ways she gets paid. 


Kelly and Lara Wakefield also have a website called S.M.A.R.T.E.R Steps that educates therapists on how they can achieve federal and state compliance while completing IEP’s. Kelly and Lara also have a book that is a 7 Step Prompting System for Developing IEP Compliant Goals



Here is what we cover:



  • Why she decided to not bill insurance

  • How she markets her practice

  • Tools she uses to bill clients

  • Unique ways of getting paid – Hint – It’s called bartering

  • Her tool to help you create and be compliant with IEP’s
