Q.

Talks through her nose

Hi
My 4 year old grandaughters teacher says we need to get her checked by an ENT as she talks through her nose. I would appreciate your comments on this, and how can we tell if she does speak through her nose.
Thanks

Your granddaughter may have enlarged adenoids if she speaks with a nasal voice. It is worthwhile having her seen by an ENT specialist about this.
