Suggest to your DF that the child be evaluated by Early Intervention through the Intermediate Unit for your school district. The evaluation and any therapy - like for speech - is free (well it's paid through your school taxes). They will check out her speech as well as any other developmental issues like the way she walks...as well as for mental issues like a cognitive delay. It's a more delicate way of saying that you're concerned and feel that there is a developmental issue with DF's daughter. With earlier therapy, there is a better chance of getting the child up to speed so to speak - before she starts school.
