My son is 9 years old, his father recently stated that my son is studdering and is taking a long time to process his thoughts. He also has said that my son, when reading a story or watching a movie, focuses on trivial things that have little bearing on what the author/director is trying to get across to the audience. He wants my son to see the schools speech therapist....I don't know what I should do. Should I allow that to happen or should I get him evaluated by someone else? If so, who? What sort of specialist?

What sort of specialist?It would probably be best to have him first seen by his pediatrician, though it wouldn't hurt to have the speech therapist evaluate him as well.
