My son's speech is delayed
I need help for my son, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My son is 4, 5 In August.
His speech is delayed he has had 3 blocks of speech therapy and loads of interventions at school, health visitor, community therapist. His speech does not seem to be getting any clearer. I have looked into private speech therapy and I can not afford it.
The children in school are being mean to him, his brother who is two is speaking a lot clearer than him and he can’t talk to people as they don’t understand him. He is very quiet and the educational phycologist thinks he suffers with an anxiety disorder / selective mutism.
My bubbly little boy has turned into a frustrated, derepressed little boy with no confidence. I don’t know where to turn or what to do. I do speech therapy everyday with him in the house also.
