My insurance will not cover speech therapy for my son unless there's an underlying medical condition that's causing the speech problem, which there isn't. The place that did his evaluation gave me a couple of options, one through the school system (we have an evaluation scheduled with them) and one through an organization called Scottish Rites (they're sending us paperwork to get on the waiting list). I wanted to know if anyone has any ideas about other options to try in case those don't work out for some reason. Other organizations that might do free or at least cheaper speech therapy? Ways to find individuals who might operate on a sliding scale or something?

My son went to speech therapy at a university that trained speech therapists. He had a student therapist and they were supervised. It was free for us because I was a student and very cheap to others. You might check community colleges and universities in your area to see if they have clinics. The one my son went to was supposed to be the best in the country and our experience may have been better than most. He went 2-3 days a week.
