    Speech

    I have never been to therapy for it.I never had a speech problem.  It has been only a few years, I have noticed I sometimes have a problem.  I don't stutter or anything.

    Insparation For Me To Keep On Doing What I Do!

    When I was three-years-old, my mother, accompanied by the Beatles ‘Drive My Car’, drove me to Nancy. Nancy was a tall woman with crazy black hair. We played games that prompted me to say my ‘trouble’ sounds. When these words came up, she would pause the game, and drill me...

    Sh - S

    I mixed "s" and "sh" up all the time as a kid. Most of the time it wouldn't be a problem, but there are some words that have different meanings, depending on the s/sh. So I had speech therapy in kindergarten. I had those cards that had pictures of things...

    When I Was 4...

    I went to occupational therapy for my speech and to develop my upper body strength because I was born 2 months early. That was just about my entire 4th year. I stuttered all the time. I'm glad I'm not the only one. :)
