Does anyone have a child who outgrew a lisp? My son says TH instead of S in words with S in it. I have him in speech therapy, but it doesn't seem to be working. He's 5 now. I wasn't sure how common it is for them to outgrow it as their mouth muscle tone improves. Do they go away completely? thanks!

This is not something that a child outgrows. He is still young. I wouldn't worry until he is at least 7.
