391 children in North Tipperary and 226 children in South Tipperary have been waiting for up to 18 months for an assessment with a speech and language therapist.
Latest HSE figures show Cork, Kerry, Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow are among the worst-hit areas.
Saoirse Brady, from the Children’s Rights Alliance, says vulnerable children are being left untreated at a crucial stage.
