Conor and Eoin were not speaking so they needed speech therapy, right? Well, not exactly. As time went on we discovered that the reasons our sons were not speaking had a myriad of causes. These conditions can exist alone, or in our case together.
Over time we started to become aware of each separate problem. And we realised that we needed to understand and treat all issues preventing speech and language. Much like joining links in a chain.
Ultimately we discovered the boys were suffering from several issues which affected all of the primary language centers in the brain. This lead to a dismal future prognosis, of our boys not talking. Below are a number of the diagnosis’ that we encountered in our search for a solution. We have compiled this list to help other parents understand the problems with children who are not speaking.
