    Default How much does your speech pathologist charge?

    I'm feeling a bit ripped off..

    $65 for 30 mins of making the fffffff sound.

    Just wondering if this is a standard consult price..

    Can anyone shed some light.

    Happy to pay it but I expected the session to go for longer.

    The private SPs I know charge $85 for 45 mins of regular session. An initial consult is $180 for 45-60 mins.

    $70 for half hour.
    My DS didn't speak but I found that once he got going with being able to say a few sounds he rapidly developed from there.

    Waaaay too much!

    He went for 3 years, and in the end I was paying $100 for 30min (which was in school time- outside of school hours, it increased to $110). Heaps of people have told me before that that is very exy but I'm so glad we did it. This week he was chosen as 1 of 4 kids from his whole grade to present his most recent project presentation to the entire junior school. What an achievement for a kid that was once classified as having a severe speech delay!

    That is superb! What an achievement! I guess you can't put a price on that really.

    Thanks for the responses.

    How long till there was some improvement?

    He can't say fffffff and his annunciation is not clear.

    But I'm glad he enjoyed the session and we will be practicing at home.

    Ps he's 3.5.

    $85 for 30 mins or $160 for $60 mins. DD1 has severe speech disorder and severe language disorder and the speech pathologist we see is amazing. Well worth the cost and the 30 min drive each way to see her.
