    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. :)

    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.

    It was hard. I did it from ages 3-7.

    I still can't hold a decent conversation I just rant on about what I want to say. It hasn't always been easy. No doubt I wasn't the cool kid in school. I don't stutter thank god.

    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...

    *arah?

    My name is Sarah and I was born with hemifacial microsomia, meaning that one side of my face is smaller than the other. Sometimes it paralyzes people but I was fortunate enough not to have been born like that. Anyway, I had difficulty saying my "s/sh"s for a long time and went to...

    but posts like that are what this community is for. So here goes. When I was little, I had problems with many sounds. So I was put into speech class. I was in there from Pre School to 7th Grade. I learned all my sounds except for a couple. I was taken out for some unknown reason...
