I am wondering if speech problems are directly related to DMD? I saw in another post that someone's neurologist said speech problems are related to DMD since the dystrophin gene is so large. My 8 year old is still in speech (now end of 2nd grade and this is his 3rd year). His speech therapist told me today that he has made no progress in the last 6 months. She wants to give up. I said, well, in the big picture, who cares, he will out grow it. She then told me no, he will not outgrow it, and his speech will never get better with his L and Rs if he doe snot put effort into it. I am not sure what to do? Anyone have these problems as well?
