My 8 year is still struggling with speech

by Stephanie

My daughter has been in speech therapy since she was 4 and is still struggling with her speech. She has made big improvements but still has several words she can’t say. She also struggles with reading. She was held back a year so she is going to second grade this year instead of third. I am basically just trying to see if there are any other parents with a child with these issues.
