New Ask Sarah

A Facebook friend asked, “When it comes to speaking, is it something you eventually give up on or do you still want/strive to do it? I’m a little torn on how much to emphasize speech with my son, not sure if I should be so insistent on it.”

Sarah responded, “Typing is my voice, but I do long for a sounding voice that comes forth quickly and sends emotions like teasing and meanness and love. Writing voices last longer and can march out to more people. I still like to practice using my sounding voice, but it frustrates me when I have much to say, but only easy baby words come with great difficulty. More is inside me, but I cannot tell my body what to do. It acts without my permission. Any and every way to be heard is a good way. Say or type, or act.”
