So what helps kids learn to speak?

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 therapies that we used, these helped us developed our solution. We have compiled this list to help other parents understand the problems with children who are not speaking.

We hope this helps you, feel free to contact us about your child.

Our speech and language success has had much to do with a wonderful team of teachers, speech therapists and behaviorists

Just because your child is not talking,
doesn’t mean they can’t speak!

We will show you the therapies to help your child .

We are sharing our experience with other parents so that all Autistic children can learn to communicate and succeed.

I have never met anyone who has re-conceptualized language learning in the way Enda and his team has.

This is something I have always thought could be possible, it is wonderful seeing this research come to life!

The Disney approach has been extraordinary particularly in the teaching of social and emotional language.
