My oldest has gone to speech since the year before kindergarten. She is in second grade now and is doing well. But now my youngest daughter is showing the same speech problems. Now my oldest had a hard time in kindergarten and first grade making friends and I just don't want my youngest to go thru the same thing. Does anyone know of a program that starts at age 3 to help with speech?
Depends on the state in which you live. There are federally mandated birth to three programs in every state and then at age three, kids are seen through early intervention services. Once they hit school age they become school district responsibilities. In PA, I know the birth to three and early intervention services are run by intermediate units (each county in PA has one). I'm not sure who you would contact in your state but your local school district can tell you.
