Zoe is 17 months old and is in PT and OT once a week for issues related to sensory processing disorder and hypotonia. She started speech therapy at the same place about a month ago for an expressive language delay and goes twice a week, for 30 minute sessions.
Our insurance so far covers all this, we pay a $10 copay per visit...
I never knew about EI until after therapy started. I love her therapists and I love that they all work at the same place and I want to stay with them. At the same time I am getting really worried about her speech...she is SOOO quiet, rarely even babbles. =( I want to know if there's more I can do for her by adding more speech therapy, maybe through EI??
Do people ever do both EI and private therapy? Is that even "allowed" per EI rules? Would it just be confusing for Zoe? Thank you for your help...!
