I have a student in my classroom that has a slow tongue.He slurs a lot of his speech and often it is hard to understand him. Being that he has bad speech, he has a really hard time with letter recognition. I know he is capable of learning his alphabet and sounds because he hears the sound when ever I say the sound of a letter, but he just can not identify the letter without hearing the sound first. He's very smart with numbers and is able to identify numbers 1-13 with no problem.He is also able to put them in order. His speech is lacking. What can I do? He starts Kindergarten in August. Eventually the school will Identify this problem and sign him up for speech therapy.
