My 2 year old son was evaluated by a speech therapist today. Two-hundred dollars later I was told his speech-age-score was 12-15 months and should have one day of speech therapy per week at 200 dollars a pop! I dont know who has this kind of extra money laying around, but I don't and to be honest, I am not extremely concerned. I do believe he's a little delayed, but he does have words and signs (baby-sign-language) and communicates pretty well. From speaking with other parents and his pre-school teacher, I have discovered this is typical of a single-child male. My questions are 1) does anyone know of any good books, activities or any way I can find ways/tools i can use to work on his speech at home? and 2) does anyone know of a way I can find a cheaper, insurance covered or govnt assisted way to get him speech therapy (in the Vetnura/LA county area)?
