i would say until maybe last year i was still having to help other people understand my dd.Does she notice or does anyone tease her,if not i am sure i read an article about speech and they said the speech developes until aged 8 yrs.try talking to the senco teacher at her school quite often they can refer or help get more speech therapy.Good luck

Ask for a hearing test, if you hadn't had one already. It is extremely common for a child with hearing problems not be able to say "sssssss" because the "sssss" sound is very soft and quite a high frequency.
