my son is 3 years old. he is very large for his age (some misktake him for a 5 year old). he has a problem with drooling. majority of the drooling happens when he is focused on an activity (hands on) or when he is extremely excited and tries to express his thoughts. his fine motor skills are on target. he loves to cut and draw pictures. he did receive some speech therapy when he was younger, and presently expresses himself quite well. developmentally, i really don't have any worries, except for his drooling.

I am planning on visiting a ENT soon, but would appreciate anyone who had a similar experience with a child.
