FREE Speech and Language Screenings for Better Hearing and Speech Month

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month. To celebrate, we are offering FREE speech and language screenings all month! Call to schedule an appointment.

A speech/language screening is a tool designed to identify children who may warrant further assessment.

Do you have concerns about your child's speech or language development?
Do you feel your child is not saying as many words or talking as much as he/she should be?
Does your child appear to not understand what is said to him/her?
Do others find your child's speech difficult to understand?
Does your child stutter or show frustration when trying to speak?
Does your child make sound errors or not speak clearly?
Does your child's voice frequently sound hoarse?

If you answered yes to any of the above, call today for a free screening!

United Healthcare Grants for Children Who Need Speech Therapy | eHow.com

United Healthcare Grants for Children Who Need Speech Therapy | eHow.com

I came across this article tonight (click on above link)--It seems like this grant might be a great option for families whose insurance will not cover speech therapy because it's not "medically necessary." Anyone who has been in this position knows how frustrating it is to have to fight with the insurance company to try to explain that just because your child has a "developmental delay" (or other noncovered condition) doesn't mean that your child doesn't need services.

The article also explains that families whose services are covered but that the co-pays are a financial hardship are eligible.

I'm not aware of anyone ever going through this grant (and I worked at a non-profit speech clinic for over 6 years that dealt with grants all the time), so if anyone checks into this for your child, let me know what you find out!

Here is the United Healthcare webpage: http://www.uhccf.org/ Specific application criteria is listed there with more information.

Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 in 110 children are diagnosed with autism? It also affects 1 in 70 boys. Learn more at www.autismspeaks.org. If you have concerns about your child's development, speak to your child's doctor. There are many good therapies including speech, occupational, and physical to help with speech/language, social skills, sensory integration, and gross and fine skills. On a sidenote, has anyone watched the new NBC show Parenthood? The character Max has Asperger's syndrome which is an autism spectrum disorder.
