A Quest For Speech

We spent years worrying about our son's development. He didn't speak until long past his second birthday, and then only when he had to. At first we were concerned that he was hard of hearing, but subsequent tests proved that this was not a problem at all. Added to his late speech development, his behaviour was sometimes indicative of autism.


After a few years, we managed to get some help with speech therapy while living in Ireland. When he was just about to start primary school, we moved to the UK and found the transition not only difficult for his feeling of security, but   also in terms of getting the speech therapy started up again. It was an extremely difficult time for all of us.


Recently, I was astounded to come across a site which would've been perfect for us a few years ago. It's a speech and language website which assists in the assessment of children 3 months to 5 years. They also provide some very enjoyable activities to help parents provide targeted therapy in the comfort of their own homes. 


It's too late for us, but if this is your need, I recommend checking them out. They're called, Speech Quest.
