Make an appointment with your pediatrician for a speech therapist referral. You can wait until he is older, the school will send him to speech if it is really the way you reported it. But I personally would not wait. My son had speech issues as well and therapy went a long way. The down side to waiting until he is in school is that sometimes teachers unfairly make the association that a child who has speech issues might not be that bright. Not even remotely true. Also get his hearing checked if you have not done so already. Many speech impairments are due to having some hearing difficulties. Talk to your doctor for all the appropriate referrals: ENT for the ears and to check basic structure of his throat, soft pallet, and tongue as well as ears. Things like adnoids sometimes gets inflamed and they cause complications with speech. The ENT will rule things out. Speech therapist to also assist in finding the right path.
