Speech theorist refuses to see my son. UPDATE: they changed their mind.
I am a little frustrated. My son is 6 years old with a realitively minor speech issue. The pediatrician referred him to a speech theorpist a month ago. I immediately made him a appointment with the only one in the area. This morning the called an canceled the appointment because " the theorist doesn't want new patients". This seems really unprofessional to me. Does it to any one else? ETA: I would have completely understood if they had told me when I first called that they were not taking new patients.... But they did not they made an appointment for this week a month out which was fine. Then they called me this morning and CANCELED the appointment they made 4 weeks ago. That is what seemed unprofessional to me
ETA2: so they called me back yesterday and told me they that because I was only asking for an evaluation, he already gets services through the school but his school therapist wanted a second opinion on something she noticed, that they would see him. which was great, and they confirmed what she noticed ( a weakness in the right side of his face) . now they want to see him weekly not so much for speech but for feeding therapy though they will work on speech too. Just thought I'd update and let everyone know how it worked out.
