Speech Vitamins???

Has anyone tried 'speech' vitamins with their kids called SPEAK? I had an autism meeting tonight where a speech pathologist was the speaker. She said several of her non-verbal patients have had success with these Speak vitamins/supplements. Just wondering if anyone has heard of them or used them. I put a couple links below that tell a little about them as I really am not a resource.

I have never heard of this. But i think if they really worked it would be all over the news.  My son has autism. And hey if taking some meds could get him to talk better i would try it. Cause his main way to talk to us is a speech device but every few weeks it brakes on us. So im back to trying to guess what he needs and wants.

She said they are for all kids with speech issues and autism

That's interesting. My son has a carnitine deficiency, I wonder of Omega 3 and E would help him. He takes L-Carnitine. He's taken a couple different supplements meant to help with cognitive function and to improve stuttering. We haven't found the right one yet.

Following. My Lil one has speech delays and hypotonia. He is improving, but I would get some if it would help more.

I give my child zija. It is an organic powder form of moringa olifera. It has every bit of nutrition possibly needed by the human body and its amazing. My son has been making leaps and bounds in progress. A friend who is close to me also has an autistic child who used to bang her head until it was bloody during her melt downs.. about a week after taking it she was calming down and the head banging episodes decreased dramatically. This stuff is pure liquid GOLD!!! Im telling you... Its almost like breast milk!!!

My little girl is like that.  She is 5.5 and no words yet.

 Never heard of it.  I'll need to google and learn more about it.  Glad you found something that works for you.
