Speech Delays in a child with developmental delays.
Has anyone ever had experience with this? My son is 11, and diagnosed multiply impaired. I am not sure how far we can go with speech with him, but he does not qualify for any speech therapy outside of what he receives in school. He goes to special ed, but because he was diagnosed with the diagnosis at birth, and the issue was not caused by trauma or disease, he does not qualify for anything for speech. The main issue we are haing with him now is that he tends to bite himself when he gets frustrated due to no way of expressing what he wants or needs. I appreciate any and all input on this matter.
