A friend of mine has mentioned that excessive drooling was one of the reasons why her ped. Started the early intervention for speech therapy for her kids. My daughter is speech delayed and was drooling a lot until all her teeth came out at 22 months (she's 3.5 yrs now). My 13 mth old son also drools excessively and so it got me thinking. Has anyone else's LO that requires speech therapy was also drooling excessively?
