Speech regression

sammiebrad41 Member Posts: 2 Listener

We have a 8 year old with Dyskenetic Cerebral Palsy, since the summer holidays started his speech has regressed badly sometimes can hardly understand him at all!! He has speech and language therapy at school and they have only been off a few weeks. Has anyone experienced this ? He seems fine in himself.

    Hi @sammiebrad41 (Sam)
    Thanks for your post. Has your son's speech regression only started during the summer break? If it has, it sounds very similar to when my physiotherapy used to stop during the long holiday. My muscle memory would slowly regress. I have found some fun speech therapy apps that you and your son could use together. Keep in touch.
