Re: Sage's Speech Delay

I think cost of EI varies. It used to be free here, but they starting charging just before older dd was evaluated. Now its based on income and family size.

At the IFSP meeting they asked us questions about what would make your life easier etc. Not that they do anything with that information. And set goals for where we wanted dd to be in 3 or 6 months (don't remember the timing). They also did make us get a prescription for EI from our pediatrician. I don't recall needing a medical history though.

It's great that you found out what you qualify for before the IFSP meeting. We found out at the evaluations that we qualified, but not what services we would receive. Both of my dd's had a speech delay and neither got speech from EI because they were under 2. Looking back, I should have pused it but I doubt it would have made a difference. Instead we had a special educator who was awful and we only lasted a few weeks with her each time. We did have a great PT for younger dd who came for a few months. I was ready to take younger dd to a private speech therapist because EI really wasn't doing anything for her speech wise, and she hated the special educator.
