So DS is currently not getting speech through his IEP. It was dropped a few years back. He had a cleft which causes issues with speech but he tested almost normal range and was getting so many other services we agreed to drop it and would pick it up privately if there was an issue. About a year and half later we started his orthodontic and having speech issues but not much we can do he has a lot of metal in his mouth. He had a nasal speech issues which was mostly fixed with surgery but its not perfect. 1000 times better but sometimes he can be hard to understand. So he comes home first week of school excited they are learning Spanish this year and imediately mommy radar pops up. Will his announciation cause issues?? Anyone have kids with speech issues have problems with foreign language?? He is excited about taking it so I would hate for it to become an issue for him.
