Re: Speech problem part of Asperger's?

My adult son is an aspie. When he was young, he had a condition known as "aphasia". He had intense speech therapy during 1-3 grade by an itinerant teacher who withdrew him from class for therapy an hour each day. To this day, his speech is immature - he speaks better than he did when he was young, but he sounds more like a 16 year old kid than a 38 year old man. Now, having said all that, it may be you have a secondary speech problem that has nothing to do with aspergers, but what you are experiencing sounds like my son. Have you ever heard of "OASIS"? This organization helps people with aspergers/autism. You might find some help there.

Be at peace,
