/r/ Distortion Following /th/

I have a student who is working on correcting /r/. He is a high school student with no disabilities other than an articulation disorder which he has been working on since kindergarten or first grade. He has corrected the /r/ distortion well with the exception of words where the preceding sound or syllable contains the /th/ sound, such as "father, brother, thirty, three, thirteen". Has anyone else encountered this and does anyone have a suggestion? I don't know how to conquer this.
