Language is defining. Being some where and everyone is speaking and you are unable to join in, puts you at a disadvantage. If you were in a foreign county and conversations were flying by your head, you would possibly feel isolated. How about if you were in an environment and everyone was conversing and you understood what was being said but simply could not express your thoughts, your wants, and your basic needs. Imagine how frustrating that would be. For so many individuals with speech challenges, that is exactly what they face everyday. For the friends and families of these folks, it is just as difficult.
