Manster has been evalauted for a speech issue this past year. The school won't provide services and our insurance said they wouldn't pay for it. A friend of mine who used to be a ST was working with him for a while. Here's the problem. He's kind of old for this to be easy, it will take a lot of work and he doesn't want to do it. The gal at Kaiser asked him if it bothered *him* that he couldn't say his "r's" and he said "no" and she said something to the effect of it being up to him if he wanted to change it. So now manster thinks he shouldn't have to and I can't seem to convince him. The only way it will work is if he does these exercises and he is so stubborn. Nagging him is just not working and I'm feeling like I'm against the wall again. Would you let this go? I kind of think it's too important to let it go but I'm not sure how to motivate him. I may go ahead and pay out of pocket (no we cannot afford this) for him to go once a week to a ST so at the very least he will have one day a week he's working on it. Thoughts or suggestions?
