Paying for therapy

My daughter's speech therapist just recommended that she starts seeing her twice a week. I replied, "That would be great who is going to pay for it?" I was reminded that Apraxia kiddos should have sessions 2-5 days a week. Our insurance pays for 20 sessions a year (we pay a $15 co pay at each visit) after that it is $70 a session. I walked away feeling like a bad parent for not just having this type of money (7k/year) saved up and ready to put out for therapy sessions.

What are some ways you have provided your child with therapies at home to help "fill the gaps?"

Where have you gotten help or reduced price therapy other than the school system? (My daughter already gets therapy twice a week at school).

Do you have a local Shriner's Hospital? or how about a chapter of the Scottish Rite? They both have free medical resources for kids in need. You could also check with your county's social service office if they know of any programs with funds available for speech therapy.

If you can't find any help available, perhaps a part time job or if you are a stay at home mom, do daycare for other children.
