Every second child in Upper Austria has speech defect

Every second child between four and six years in Upper Austria has a problem with the right way of speaking.

A typical pointer of a speech defect is the word “Schule”, which means “school” in English language. A child with a speech defect says “Sule” instead of “Schule (English accent: soole=false/shoole=correct)”. Experts complain that most of the parents does not care about the speech defects of their children. There are good therapies against such a development, but usually parents think the problem is going to solve itself after some time. Money can’t be the problem. A therapy would be paid by the statutory health insurance.
