What has she done for your son that she doesn't do for all kids or that other teachers haven't done for him?

That's awesome that you're doing that. It's so rare to get a letter of appreciation. So few people think to take the time to do it. When I do get one, I treasure it.

 My son has a server speech problem, she's mangaged something that we've been trying to get him today, stopping, and slowly tell us what he wants to. And he also shuts down when he gets to upset if he cant figure something out so she lets him takes his time and calm down and then helps him figure it out. And I do appreciate what his speech teacher does for him, like I said his room moms are wanting each child to write a note for her. But I am planning on writing one for his speech teacher.

I would tell her just that. 

Tell her you've been struggling to help him for years and she is the one who finally broke through. 

Tell both of them the changes you see in your son and let them know you realize they helped those changes happen.

I would just say thank you, point out a few things that struck you as awesome and leave it at that :).

Can you ask your child what he likes about his teacher, and write those comments down, so that you say thank you ask an adult, but it also has his own words?

I also recommend sending it to the school district personnel office, so it can be in her permanent file. School districts love these letters if a teacher does not have tenure.

That's a great idea. Send it to the principal too!
