Since she could talk, my DD has has trouble with some blends. Spoon was foon, smart was fart, smile was file, spin was fin. Out of the blue, at almost 5, she just suddenly gets it. I've been working with her for the past year or so, but it's like something just clicked. I'm so happy. It seems like a small thing, but kids were starting to make fun and family kept bringing it up. Her pediatrician said not to worry until 5 or 6, but I worried anyway.

articulation should have been addressed when she was 3, and the teasing would not of even began.

i would find a new ped.  a good ped knows artic should be looked and addressed at the age of 3.

glad she isnt having problems, but please find a new ped. this one certainly doesnt know what they are doing if they told you to wait

I have my daughter in special needs preschool for speech delays.  It wouldn't hurt to get her screened.  The screening and the preschool is free.
