    Hi Konni,
    My daughter was in speech-therapy in Kindergarten and 1. grade (that's from 4-6 years old, here), because she not only had a lisp, but couldn't say the rolling R. (wouldn't be a problem in an English-spoken country, but here it is.)
    She went there 2x a week, together with five other kids from her group. They had great fun together and now all of them speak perfectly well.
    Take care, Renee

    Thanks to everyone to replied to my post. I really appreciate all your input and the stories you shared with me. It's helped me make a decision about Ian.

    Our insurance only pays for 30 visits a year, so if we get started and it ends up that he doesn't seem to be getting enough out of the private sessions, we will add the ones at school as well. I think I would prefer he be with the therapist one-on-one, so private seems to be the way to go at this time. However, if we need it, the school program is there and I now have some more positive views of it rather than the negatives that I remember from when I was a child.

    If I sound a little discombobulated, I didn't get much sleep yesterday and I'm back at work tonight.
