Hello doctor,

My daughter is 6 years old having trouble in speech. While taking she cannot clearly pronounce word R and L. She always speaks L instead of R.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This means her neurological development is normal, memory and intelligence intact. This kind of giggling or word pronunciation is common up to 8 to 10 years, with age it will improve. Then no need to worry, just she needs speech therapy. I will tell you tomorrow what you have to do and whom you have to meet for speech therapy.
