Low muscle tone in his mouth and being tongue tied?
My DS's speech therapist thinks he might have low muscle tone in his mouth and that's why he doesn't talk. She thinks this for a few reasons.
He was tongue tied when he was born and instead of clipping it, a laser was used to receed the frenulum in an outpatient procedure when he was 5 months old.
I am wondering if him being tongue tied and the low muscle tone are connected. I kept asking my son's doctor to order the surgery but he wouldn't do it until my son was 5 months old. His ST was not sure if they were connected and she is going to ask someone she knows what they think.
Anyone else experience this problem?
