My son of three and a half is undergoing assesment for asd.He still has a dummy at the moment.The speech and language therapist and educational psychologist say that the dummy might be due to his poor speech sounds.But I am concerned as he used to have very good clear speech and his speech sounds have now regressed.He has always had a dummy and uses it less now than previously.Also I have a son of ten on the autistic spectrum who has not used a dummy since he was about four and he still has poor speech sounds others cannot understand his language yet and he has been classed as dyspraxia of speech.Can a dummy permantly damage speech?Maybe the dummy also makes him tip toe walk and flapp?When will they listen?
