My 9 year old son has stuttered for years. I was always told he would "grow out of it" so I never took him to a therapist. At times he would seem to have grown out of it; however, it is still there.
It also seems I can't understand him sometimes. As in the quality of his speech, like his tongue is thick and he has a lot of saliva keeping his words from being spoken clearly. My question is, is it too late to help him with his speech?
I know that speech therapy is usually done at an early age, but can older children receive therapy and it be beneficial?
