    Speech

    I have never been to therapy for it.I never had a speech problem.  It has been only a few years, I have noticed I sometimes have a problem.  I don't stutter or anything.

    When I Was 4...

    I went to occupational therapy for my speech and to develop my upper body strength because I was born 2 months early. That was just about my entire 4th year. I stuttered all the time. I'm glad I'm not the only one. :)

    Sh - S

    I mixed "s" and "sh" up all the time as a kid. Most of the time it wouldn't be a problem, but there are some words that have different meanings, depending on the s/sh. So I had speech therapy in kindergarten. I had those cards that had pictures of things...
