Bite and 'R' Production

I have always been under the impression that bite plays no part in 'r' therapy.

Student has no diagnosed syndrome, no structural anomaly, hearing WNL. Student's previous SLP brushed off student's incorrect 'r' as an error due to underbite. I disagree.

Am I missing the boat? I believe that I should work with the student.

Your opinion?

I agree

In my opinion, bite shouldn't matter either. Your teeth are not even closed during /r/ production. I say treat him!
