I have a speech-delayed 5.5 years old son. Our first language is Arabic and he goes to an Arabic school that teaches English as a second language.
We have been doing speech therapy since he was 3.5 yo. The initial assessment was that he is about 2 years delayed from his peers. I also have a daughter who is 3.5 yo and her speech is now equal or better than his.
Also, I need to mention that there are signs of moderate attention deficit.
The problem now is that I have a good job opportunity in a city where the available school will be teaching in English only (IB curriculum). Most of the teachers and students speak English as their first language and I'm afraid that this could worsen my son's speech condition.
What do you think?
