Because of an inherited / hereditary dental condition, DD has had crowns put on her back teeth and a spacer on the top. There are times when her speech isn't always understood and we've had to ask her to repeat herself. So right now we're in the process of having her assessed by the school to see if she qualifies for help with speech therapy. They classify this help under special education. Although she above her K level in a couple of subjects and know all of the school work, it's still called special education. I'm okay with her taking the speech therapy if it will help her speak more clearly but DH is totally against it. He doesn't like the idea of her being in special ed. I says it will be a stigma that follows her throughout her school years. So he hopes she fails the assessment test and feels that I should also hope she doesn't do well on the test. What am I missing? If the sessions will help her speech why not let her?
