    Just wait until he’s three Lemont, maybe he’ll grow out of it on his own. Besides, they have his records so they’ll know his age.

    As I’ve said before, the seven-year-old granddaughter hasn’t grown out of it yet. She still can’t pronounce her :r’s" and is often incomprehensible. We’ve asked the school about providing speech therapy, but they said “Naa, she’s okay.”

    R’s are late developing. Being frequently incomprehensible is a bigger concern. Some insurance policies will cover speech therapy. You might want to bite the bullet and have her independently evaluated. Even if you can’t immediately afford to get private speech therapy, the evaluation might make the school district change its mind.

    If your school is reluctant to provide treatment, you can bring the evaluation to the district Special Education department and request an IEP.

    Even that is no guarantee that she will receive the speech services. My daughter has a diagnosis of high functioning autism, which means that, academically, she can excel, but has about a two to three year social delay. Although, she had received the diagnosis from a psychiatrist that specialized in children, the school system refused to diagnose my daughter with the condition and sent her to progressively worse schools until we removed her from the public school system entirely.
    Follow-up examinations have demonstrated that my daughter is doing better than the school system ever expected for her to do, and because of the once a week meetings she has with a home school co-op, she has a few good friends – something that three plus years in public schools she did not have.

    Also, my daughter had an IEP that the school system somehow could not meet, even though she was place in special needs classes. Personally, I think it more of a case of the teacher not having enough time or help to spend to meet my daughter’s IEP than gross ignoring of the legal requirements of the IEP. Especially since my daughter did not fit in the preconceived perception of what an autistic child abilities were expected to be.

    Specific learning disabilities are not tied to IQ
