My son had a different speech issue when he was younger, but Miché Almeida at South County Pediatric Speech was wonderful. I recommend her as a warm and intelligent speech therapist:

I have a wonderful sweet friend who is a speech therapist. She works part time in a speech therapy office, but has also started to take clients in during the week at her home (or she may even meet you at your home?) She is also a homeschooling mom. Her name and number is: Tami Reece 562-533-4311. Good luck!
You can try Shaun Howell in Lake Forest. (www.ustoocenter.org)
Have you tried going through your school district? They can do an assessment and if your child qualifies, you may be able to get 12 sessions with a district Speech Therapist.
Two of my three boys have had significant speech delays, and one stuttered. We have been working with Heather Lovejoy for nearly three years now, and we LOVE her. She specializes in pediatric speech therapy, and clearly has a passion for working with children. Our boys think she is fabulous. She works privately (she'll even come to your home!) and can provide you with bills to submit to your insurance company. Her phone number is 714-393-9405.
I know an excellent Speech Therapist. Her name is Molly Cote. She is also a homeschooling mom. Here is her contact information if you would like to call or email her directly:
