With Carter we waited for answers. Why wasn't he speaking? We waited for help. No one seemed to know what to do with a toddler that wasn't developing speech. After being shuffled through the system at our local child development centre, (we participated in the Hanen program and then received minimal speech therapy service) we were placed on a waiting list for Augmentative Communication services. We waited three years.
