Three-year-old Ayden Laughman needs intensive speech therapy, about three to five sessions a week, to treat a neurological disorder that affects his ability to speak properly.
Ayden was diagnosed at 18 months old with apraxia. Basically, said his mother, Dana Laughman, his brain knows what he wants to say but can’t coordinate the muscles in his lips and tongue to say it.
Co-pays for his therapy sessions — which can be about a quarter of the cost of the session — add up.
“It can be more than a car payment a month,” said Laughman, of Penn Township. “Financially, it can add a strain to what your budget is.”
