Has anyone done this speech program? We are about to start DS who is turning 2 on this program. Seeking feedback about what to expect for DS who doesn't say clear words.

Yes, I did this program for my daughter. It helped. You do the workshops and implement at home. My daughter would only come for the sessions where the SP would video us and then would give me pointers, identify how things had changed/improved.

Fantastic for my son. We did it via speech therapist. I find myself using the same techniques on my 10 week old now, it's so ingrained, it's automatic. It means that speech therapy is all the time. My son takes great pride in pronouncing words correctl.
Not working on my 10 week old yet though ha ha.

Thanks for the responses. Is it a weekly or fortnightly thing. I don't want to push DS but want to help his as much as I can. It's very frustrating being very repititious with limited verbal response

I can't remember how frequently we did it. It was more about teaching me on how to help my Ds at home and incorporate it into daily life (the best kind of therapy, because it just happens naturally). My son has had lots of therapy and speech therapy would be his favourite. A good therapist will make it fun.

I did it. It did help and made me more aware of how I communicate with dd. Some of the things I already do naturally and other things I have to make a conscious effort.
