DS had his first early intervention evaluation yesterday, and the evaluator noted that he always seems to have his mouth open and drools a lot. She said it could be a sign of an adenoid problem, which may be a factor in DS's speech delay. I feel terrible, but I honestly never noticed that DS usually has his mouth open. I will definitely bring it up at our next pediatrician's appointment in November, but I was curious if anyone here had heard about/experienced a connection with adenoids and speech delay. I'm not looking to rush into an unnecessary surgery, but if he's really having a problem due to his adenoids, then I certainly want to do whatever I can to help him. Thanks so much!
