Default Voice Banking Question

Hi again,
For those who've done it, could anyone tell me how you go about the voice banking process? We have a referral to a speech therapist but do they need to specialize in this to help with the process? Is it available in every state? The first person I spoke with had no idea.

I used modeltalker too. Took me a couple months to record the 1600 phrases but I did drag it out since there was no immediate need.

I am trying modeltalker which a friend's husband used...the issue is that all the rooms downstairs have wood or tile and the sound reverberates...Any suggestions apart from going upstairs - not very safe or doable for me...I was thinking of putting a sheet over my head on the bed and trying that, I just need to make it repeatable...

Do you have a walk in closet? Or smallest room. I put blankets down all around me and closed all window coverings.
