    Isn’t it amazing how much you can learn in just one day! Loved your post!
    Thank you for sharing… : )

    • Thank-you so much Mary Kay. Yes, I did learn a lot in one day but hats off to you for living it deep in your bones for a week, which yes, brings on an incredible realness of my son not having words for 12 years.

    This is such a timely post as I JUST got back from a two day conference on AAC and communication partners. I really want to chat with you about what I learned. Starbucks coffee date???

    Hi Heather. Danielle (Trevy’s mom) shared this on her Facebook page and I came to check it out. I’m a pediatric Speech Path and let me tell you how AMAZING this post is. I am LOVING this and I think YOU have inspired ME to take a day where I do not talk. I think, as an SLP, this will teach me so many lessons about the little ones (and bigger ones) that I work with, and their families. Thank you for the inspiration! You are one wonderful mama!

    • Katie – Thank you so much for your kind words! This is why I write – to get people to think and educate others about our world. Thank-you for your part in it. SLPs are so important. I highly encourage you to take even an afternoon to not speak. It’s an interesting challenge. I’d love to hear about it if you do.

    Love, love, love this! Thank you so much for sharing! My daughter has Apraxia & is very limited with her speech. This has helped me to understand her a little bit better. Maybe one day when I’m more brave, I’ll try this experiment, too… I so admire you for doing it & sharing it! I’ll be checking out your friend’s site & following you on FB & Twitter.
