Our bill, LD 687: An Act Regarding Reimbursement for Speech and Language Pathology Services, a bill that will increase MaineCare Reimbursement rates for speech and language therapy, keep SLPs in the field (and in Maine), increase the number of SLPs who can see preschoolers with speech and/or language impairments, get kids the speech and language therapy they need before entering public school, and ultimately help to improve kids' chances at school success, has been carried over into the 2018 legislative session and has passed!
