Can anyone recommend anyone who we can see privately? DS (just six) has a lisp but as well as that (thock for sock) will often do a sort of reverse lisp (srew for threw). He's been assessed at school who agree that he has a lisp but the local authority / health authority only provide help if it's impacting on the child's phonics or reading because they can't actually hear the difference between the sounds. That's not the case here - his reading and phonics is fine - but we do need to get some attention on it as people are starting to comment.

You can find private SLTs on the ASLTIP website ASLTIP

Has he got his 2nd teeth yet? This can change/improve lisps. ASLTIP would be your port of call. Also there is a website run by a charity calle AFASIC (action for all speech impaired children), loads of info/advice on this. In my area, SLTs in the NHS would not routinely treat a child with a lisp until 8 and even then, only if it was affecting overall intelligibility of speech.

Thanks for the messages. No he hasn't got any second teeth yet - interesting to hear that that could change things. Will do some research on that website. thanks again
