So we met with Cameron's speech therapist today and she was nice. He did great! So today was "evaluation" and not working with him. It cost us $225 We have 5 more appointments booked to get us to his FREE speech therapy (he's on the wait list). The 5 half hour sessions will cost us another $350 How are regular people supposed to afford this? I know that they have fees to pay and have spent tons on schooling and so on but it's just crazy. And they don't offer payment plans either Oh well my son needs it so we WILL find the money. I have been looking at getting subsidies, so hopefully I get more info on that soon.

OK so Cameron is 2years and 6.5months old and he is coming in at 1year 8months old for speech and related skills. Which isn't too bad!

We still don't know where he fits on the spectrum But we know it's mild. I'm so happy about that. He's such a smart boy, and I love him so much. I just want the absolute best for him.

Thanks for listening!

Wow. When Hunter was evaluated, I didn't have to pay a dime. I wonder what's different between the two of us? I called EI (Early Intervention) and they took over from there.

I would have had to pay for his summer ST because the services he was under are off for the summer. But I wrote a letter to a charity, although I don't recall which one, and they paid it for me.

I'm in Ontario, Canada so that might make a difference. There are tons of fantastic FREE programs here but the waiting lists are long So instead of sitting on our hands and wallets we decided to bite the bullet and put him into private until he can get the free.

Just lurking but I wanted to say I feel your pain about the long waiting lists. We're in New Brunswick, and we waited for 11 months to get Ezekiel into speech therapy. He was referred at 19 months at high priority status, and finally got in with the province-covered speech language pathologist two weeks ago, at 2 1/2. We have a bit of coverage for private ST through our insurance but it would barely have gotten us through the assessment and one session. So frustrating!
