So, my daughter (21 month) has an underbite and I noticed a lisp when she says certain words. I did some research on the internet and most of the comments are "most likely the underbit / lisp will go away by itself". I'm realy afraid she will start school in a few years and kids will make fun of her if she still has a lisp. Anyone out there who knows what I can do? My insurance will not pay for speech therapy so I'm afraid of the cost for that. Any good books out there with exercises that I can teach my daughter? The underbite is another thing that worries me, I know braces will most likely fix that problem but of course she has to get older for that.
Any tips regarding lisp and underbites are apreciated.
P.S. I'm new and this is my first post so I'm still trying to figure everything out. Where is the spell check button???
