My son has been in speech therapy since Kindergarten, he's now in 5th grade. His original problem was that when he was born, his tongue was connected on the bottom. Two years ago we had surgery to correct this and now he can move his tongue fine. His speech improved a great deal after the surgery but he still needed to go to therapy to learn how to use his newly freed tongue in speech. He had several problems, one of which was the "r" sound. with. His speech teacher said he was doing fine in her room, but when he returns to the classroom,he gets lazy and goes back to mispronouncing his words. Well today, she called me, and said she don't know how to help him anymore, she said it's like running into a brick wall. She said my son told her that he don't want to do speech anymore, and that he don't care about how he sounds. Any one have any experience/advice?
