Some areas have longer waits than others, but having to wait months seems excessive! It’s frustrating to have such a long wait when you’re eager to get started. In the meantime, you could always check out a college in your area. University speech-language programs usually have on-campus speech centers for the public. They often charge a small fee, but it’s much less than typical out-of-pocket speech therapy. A graduate student would be assigned as your child’s therapist, but the student works under direct supervision of an experienced certified speech-language pathologist. It may be an option to consider to at least get something started. Best of luck to you and your daughter!
Great advice! I’m going to look into this!
