Does my Child Need Speech Therapy?
Children reach speech milestones at their own pace. However, if by age two, they cannot create words and simple sentences that are easy to follow, you should consider speech therapy. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why some children don’t develop speech as quickly as others. However, that doesn’t mean that they can’t go on to have successful lives. Speaking is a learned ability, and through the right approach and practice, we can improve your child’s speech. There is no set standard for your child to start speaking once they begin therapy. When you bring your child to us, we will assess the nature and severity of your child’s speech challenge as well as any other learning or behavioral issues they may be working through.
Is Speech Therapy Covered By Insurance?
Some insurance companies cover speech therapy, and we allow private payment for those whose insurance won’t cover the treatment. As a family-owned and –operated home health therapy agency, we make every effort to ensure that our families get the services they need at an affordable price. If you’re unsure if your insurance covers speech therapy, give us a call and find out how we might be able to help.

Should I Come to My Child’s Speech Therapy Session?
Absolutely, yes! As a parent, you are likely the one your child communicates with the most. We believe the parent or guardian must take an active role in the child’s speech therapy. You can take the techniques and skills your child has learned in treatment and apply them to their everyday life. This will benefit both you and your child as you work through these challenges together.
Will My Child’s Communication Skills Improve at School?
One way children learn how to communicate effectively is by watching their peers interact and imitating those interactions. While at school, they can pick up on social cues and learn how to annunciate their words. For many children, this can increase their confidence and willingness to communicate. However, some children who may be shy or don’t have the confidence to interact with other children. Our compassionate speech therapists can provide 1-on-1 attention with your child to help them improve their speech.
Why Does My Child Have Trouble Following Instructions?
When children have trouble following instructions, it’s not necessarily because they don’t care or aren’t listening. Some children can’t comprehend the information they are given or have trouble remembering. However, following instructions is a part of life, so your child must be able to follow instructions from their peers and adults. You might find that your child can follow school instructions or therapy, but not at home. That’s okay. Your child is learning and developing. We encourage parents to take our activities and apply them outside just the child’s therapy session. At Daisy Kids Care, we reinforce instruction and speech therapy with play, pictures, and other engaging and age-appropriate activities.
