The mom is a really sweet girl, but her and her husband are, for lack of a better description, laid back parents. They just kinda float through and are not real proactive with things, so for them, her speech is probably just not an issue. I have tried to bring up some daycare programs and summer programs for their son, who is reallyreally smart but is bored just being with either me or grandma when school is not in, but they just 'uh huh' and go on. They love these kids and are good to them, just not really looking at what can benefit them Plus, they both work and don't seem to be able to juggle kids activities with their work. I was the one who brought up my DD's speech issues at her daycare, they observed more closely, and helped me get the resources. I just hope they will accept it. LadyL, I think I will use your suggested way to bring it up, more putting it on me and see what they say. And Knitterly, yes, I use the tools I have been taught by my daughter's therapist on her ( I almost believe she has the same condition my DD has, just undiagnosed, due to her eating issues too) but I only have her a few hours a week now.
