Q.

speech therapy for a 4 year old

My 4 year old nephew has started in a model c pre school, he cant speak english other than how are u, whats yr name. The teacher has recommended speech therapy, I just want to know if this is in fact the solution for a 4 year old to speed him up with the language and roughly how long he should do it. The speech therapist has recommended one meeting per week.

I can't see how the speech therapist seeing him once a week is going to help all that much. He will learn to speak English in a very short time by himself if he is with English children all the time especially at his age.You will be amazed at how quickly he will learn to speak English.
