I know, and verbal dyspraxia is the one speech therapists find the hardest to treat apparently. She should be having so much more therapy than what she's getting. She's been working on one sound for 9 months now. hmm
Sorry for rant. I'll look that one up, thanks. smile

The "Teach me to Talk" speech therapist did a radio programme on it (I didn't hear it, she just mentioned it at the end of her programme on receptive language delay which is my issue).
go to and follow the references to the radio programmes.
