Ninja Turtles and Speech Therapy

Who knew that Ninja Turtles can have such a great impact on speech.

Nick has been taking speech therapy to help with a number of letter sounds.
Remember that this is the boy that didn't speak more than 10 words until he was 2 years old.
While Nick's speech did explode (around the time he got his first wheelchair), he has consistently had difficulties with specific sounds.


He really doesn't want to practice sounds.
"I already did that"

The big ones have been L and K sounds.
We've been looking at ways to get Nick to continue to work on sounds without getting frustrated.

I talked to his speech therapist from last year and she said how well Nick is doing and just spontaneously making the right sounds.


I guess, like everything, Nick has decided for himself what he wants to do, and so he's doing it
