Our eldest son has speech and language in school twice a week. His teacher and the speech and language teacher let us know how he is getting on and send home reports on how he is doing. I would go into the school and ask why he is only getting one session of slt a week. hope this helps

Yes if you think your child needs speech therapy just tell the school you want them evaluated.

Mrs. Stevens, It sounds like she does not want to do her job. I have worked with a lot of people in the 17 years my child has been in the world. I donot know if your child is in special education. Speach in the school is handled through prupil appriseal here (a division of the school system. Check what department of the school it is under in your town. Start with the director there. If you have to go to school superintend. for many years we were in contact with both so much we are on first names now. Do not take excuses from someone that does not want to do their job. If the parents do not fight for their children no one will.

My son gets one on one speech once a week due to him having Down syndrome. If it states it in your sons IEP that he has it twice a week then they have to provide the service twice a week. If the speech therpist is making excuses I would talk to the Director of Special Services and let them know whats going on.

My son got speech in preschool however it was at circle time and all the kids did it. When he started k and up they wanted to pull him out of class to have speech. I did not allow this because if they pull him out of class he is missing something being taught that he needs to learn. I would be trading a speech issue for a math or language arts issue. I took him to speech before school. Good luck.

My five year old daughter has been with a Speech and OT Therapist since 2 and 3 starting school. My daughter has Expressive language deficit and OT delays. Mainly poor inner body strength. How when she amazes me on her strength but its true. I have placed her in a Karate class and she loves it. Everyone though I was nuts knowing her anger but its helping her channel her anger in other ways other than hitting poor mom. The problem I have now is Was it the wrong preschool or what my daughters been in Preschool since age 3 and still does not know her alphabet. She knows there is MADISON in her first name but spelling it might be MIADSON or something. If I try at home she fights me tooth and nail. So I bought her a Leapster Explorer and that helps with drawing upper and lower case letters. The new preschool she goes to now since January basically told me if she would have been with them they would have had her knowing her alphabet by now. Now with the old school signing off shes ready for Kindergarten and now I am not sure about the new school. grrrr to say the least. Lorie

I know a number of kids in the early grades who are in speech therapy, although neither of my kids had it. My son was in anger management therapy since first grade through the school, with small results.



OTOH, I was in speech therapy when I was in kinder and first grade. I don't know why. There were certain words I had problems with and still do (squirrel and magician are two of them) and I remember practicing the "r" sound but I have no idea if there was ever a diagnosis. It could simply have been that I was the first child and my parents wanted to be sure to do everything right. I went once a week to the office and met with the therapist there.



This was 50 years ago! but I don't think it has changed much.

My older child had speach problems with one on one he did great. We were able to stop after 3 simaster. The younger child has Downs. Speach problems is normal for them. We started speach one on one when he was only a few months old through the school system. At 17 his speach is understandable if he talks slow most of the time. One lady started him with american sign at 2. He knows a lot of it but seldom uses it. I know one on one is the best way to go. If you have insurance most of the time they will pay for private. We had trouble getting private and school at the same time "it is against the rules" He did great that way. and do not take no as an answer. There is a way around it. You will have to ask around to find a way to do it.

Yes. She works with him in class to help him be involved with answering questions and in the speech room when she wants to target his needs. She also talks with his speech therapist that he see's once a week after school. Their working together has really helped my 5th grader. It really helps kids and they get more independent and confident.

My son gets speech once a week in school. He used to get it twice but needs more help in other areas. He has been diagnosed with apraxia which effects his speech. He will be getting private speech which is one on one (a lot of insurances will cover this with a script from your doc). Plus he will get it in school. They do a lot of groups in school and doesn't help as well. Make sure you check to see if they are getting at least some one on one.

My son received private speech therapy from the time he was 2 1/5 until he was 5 through a grant with St. Louis Hearing and Speech. My son has a speech disfluency, which in laymens terms means he stutters. He has received therapy through school since he began in kindergarten and he is now in the 4th grade. His school only goes to grade 5, but when he graduates and goes to middle school, he will also receive speech therapy at that school. I have no complaints regarding his therapy, except that I feel like they push techniques and my son does not like to use techniques. He is happy just to speak, and if he stutters, so be it. It's up to you (the audience) to figure out what he is saying. He is comfortable in his skin and i am comfortable for him. Ok, so I told you his life story...why do you ask? lol. Oh, and he is 10 years old and still on target in his school work.

Yes, she started receiving speech therapy when she was two through the school district. She is now 7 and in first grade. She sees the therapist once a week at school.
