Re: Speech delay caused by enlarged tonsils
I have a 6 year old, who didn't have a speech delay but saw a speech therapist due to not being able to say his sounds correctly. He has overcome this after about 2 years (through his elementary school, so only saw her during school months). His tonsils are huge and as I type we are getting a referral (love insurance co's) to see an ENT. I have a feeling we will be spending some time at home this summer recovering from a tonsillectomy. They don't hurt him, so he says, but he's had them like this for so long, he probably doesn't know what it feels like for his throat to feel good. I hope your little one does better.
