Speech Therapy in Santa Monica CA

You probably landed on this page because you are looking for a speech therapist in Santa Monica, California. Our goal is to help as many people as we can with finding a good speech therapy clinic in their area. Going through this process with our first-born son, we realized the difficulties in finding good therapists who understood our concerns, our needs and our questions. There are many great speech therapists that love what they do and will be eager to help you understand the process and what needs to be done to get you the help you need. Going through this process can be scary and frustrating if you do not know what to do next.

If your child is not talking yet, do not lose hope – that is most likely why you landed on this page. You are seeking hope, looking for someone who can help you navigate this struggle your child is having. Our son was diagnosed with Apraxia of Speech and has been in therapy since he was 2 years old. It has been a very long and slow journey, but the changes we have seen have given us hope that he will be able to fully speak later in life.

How Much Does Speech Therapy Cost?

A big question you may have is, how much does this cost? Some clinics will take only self-pay patients, while others will take insurance and Medicaid. The quality of service you receive should be the same no matter how you pay. From speaking with many speech therapists (both in-clinic and in-home care), we have found that the average cost of a 30 minute session ranges from $50-$100 in most local areas. Keep in mind that this is a general cost and the cost in Santa Monica may be more or less. Most therapy sessions are billed in 30-minute increments with most children seeing a speech therapist 2-4 times per week.
