Question from the Field
By Gay Lloyd Pinder, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Question: My daughter has severe cerebral palsy with poor head and trunk control. Although she is able to make sounds and tries to talk, her sounds are too short for more than one word at a time and are very quiet except when she is crying. Why canít she make longer sounds so she can talk in sentences?
