Help recommendations and advice needed.

Have a son (nearly 4) who has delayed speech - he had glue ear which was diagnosed last year and treated and have just gotten into the first rung of the speech therapy ladder.

He is chatty but his pronunciation is not where it should be for his age - basic sounds aren't being pronounced. Worried as he's going to school in September and want him to be understood. There he been some progress but it's extremely slow and those who don't know him can't understand him. I want his entry to school to be positive.

Any recommendations for speech therapists or routes to take?

(Awaiting a cleft speech therapist appt as well to rule this out).
