Met a speech therapist who gave me this site. I am desperate to find a speech therapist that will not give up on my granddaughter Ryleigh. She has microcephaly, seizure disorder, and other things as well as autism. She is nine years old but more like a two year old in many ways. She does not speak except to say no, yeah (yes), or uh. She has spoken three word sentences before but forgets or just doesn't want to talk. We don't know which. She is frustrated and bites herself as well as others, hits windows and doors and kisses many other things which puts her at risk for different illnesses. She gets speech therapy in school about 45 min. per month and she gets occupational therapy once each week. They all try different things with her to try to get her to talk but she just wont even tho she has before. We just don't know what to do to help her more.
Thank you for visiting speakingofspeech.com!
