    Speech/Reading/Comprehension therapy?

    Advertisements
    Oooookay, so I'm severely Dyslexic.
    It's to the point where I sometimes have a really hard time speaking.
    I used to take speech classes when I was younger and it helped a lot. I figured it couldn't hurt to take some now...
    I was also considering comprehension therapy because well...I have a hard time comprehending what I read or hear...

    Dose anyone happen to know if TriCare covers any type therapy like this? If not, who should I call to ask/get information?


    Thank you for any help.

    i know they have it for kids.....but sometimes they just let the school district deal with the therapies...there's also the ECHO program. We recently enrolled in that program for ODS autistic issues.

    Maybe the exceptional member family program can help you. I am not all that familiar with it but I have heard good things.
    Eligibility Criteria :"An exceptional family member is defined as an authorized family member (spouse, child, stepchild, adopted child, foster child, or a dependent parent) residing with the sponsor who may require special medical or educational services based upon a diagnosed physical, intellectual or emotional handicap such as asthma, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, dyslexia, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit disorder/Hyperactivity (ADHD), autism, oppositional defiant disorder, or depression. Disabilities may range from mild to severe."

    I hope it helps you

    You can request a referral from your PCM to Speech Pathology.

    That's great! I'm planning on making an appointment to see my PCM next week. I'll defiantly ask about that.
