  • That's ridiculous! Communicating effectively has nothing to do with talking! A speech therapist's goal should be to get the child or young adult to communicate. Ask other therapists here and they will tell you the same thing.

    Although mine is 19, I hope to try everything until something works, and I wish the same for you.
