  • Ask your pediatrician: Many pediatricians are also speech therapists and can recommend a therapist in the area of speech pathology for your child.
  • Ask friends, family, or other caregivers who have children aged 3 to 7 years old: If you know someone with a 3- to a 7-year-old child who has had good results from therapy with a speech therapist, this is an often reliable way to find one too.
  • Check online directories or databases of speech therapists: Several online directories and databases list information about individual therapists in various areas (e.g. ., speech pathology, special needs therapy, developmental disabilities).
  • Ask your child’s school: Many schools have speech therapists on staff who may be able to recommend a therapist within their area of specialty.
  • Try contacting the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA): ASHA is a national trade association that provides resources and support for professionals in all areas relating to communication and hearing disorders, including speech therapy. If your child is struggling to communicate, it can be very frustrating. You may want to consider seeking out a pediatric speech therapist to help them improve their communication skills.
