Should not: Though it may change speach patterns and they may need to learn how to use the muscles of the tongue more, it should not be a concern. Usually it will free up the tongue and allow them to make the proper pronunciations (s's/t's). You should work with them to help them make the proper sounds now that they can. ...Read more
