Speech therapy needed for Oakland preschooler
My 3-year-old's pediatrician recently referred us to speech therapy for him (she said he can be understood only 50% of the time, and it should be at least 75%). He was referred to Alta Bates, but they quoted us $800 for the evaluation alone (our insurance has a high deductible) with a 6-8 month waitlist. Are there any other resources we can use? I have read about OUSD's general early intervention program, but am having trouble connecting with the right person (if there is one). Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for preschool speech therapy that we could look into? I really want to get this assessed and make progress soon, but am feeling lost. Thank you in advance.
