How much will it cost have a speech therapist see my child in Singapore? This is often one of the first questions we get when parents are deciding whether or not to send their child for therapy. If you've been trying to find out how much speech therapists charge and have not been able to do so - fret not, you're at the right place.
The costs of speech therapy depends on many factors such as a therapist's experience and expertise, but generally range between $180-$220 per session (a session is typically 45 mins - 1 hour) at the clinic.
Home therapy charges on the other hand tend to be higher as the costs of transport and additional travelling time have to be taken into account. In general, home speech therapy can cost between $200-$250 per session (a session is typically 45 mins - 1 hour).
While the differences in costs between most providers for each session might not be significant, it is important to remember that the costs of Speech Therapy can add up over a period of time. Speech therapy is not a magic pill that can work wonders for your child over 1-2 sessions. It takes time and patience to build up foundations that can last for a long time. Depending on the challenges that your child is facing, he/she might require longer term speech and language therapy support. It is thus more important to find a speech therapist that can help plan for the long term together with you and ensure your child is equipped with the skills to be independent - despite their challenges. The goal is not for a child to be reliant on therapy to cope, but to eventually thrive without it.
At Dinosaur Speech Therapy, we believe in enabling your child to have the skills to expand their own learning, rather than supporting them as a crutch that they cannot discard.
