honestly! my daughter is 4 1/2 and has hearing loss which has caused a articulation delay (pronouncing words). a child, about 10-12ish for no good reason went up to my daughter while she was playing and told her she was stupid and to to stop playing with the toys and get on her "short bus"......wth??? shes tests two year above her peers (she is in all 1st grade work) but just because she cant pronounce words shes stupid? then i told the mother what her son said and that it was very rude and hurt dd's feeling and she said "well how do you expect him to act when he hears someone who sounds stupid? speech is a good indication of IQ"....really? i ended up goign to the front and explaining the situation and asked if we could just wait in the back (not in a room because i know there is others before us) and she let us wait in the brake room. dh thinks i was to passive lol what would you have done?
