Joshy Finds His Voice - A Story About Speech and Silence

Joshy Finds His Voice - A Story About Speech and Silence

Joshy starts school at age four, unable to express his thoughts or feelings, or even to understand what his teacher is saying. He has Specific Language Impairment. He sounds more like a two-year-old than a four-year-old. The book tells the story of the relationships between Joshy, his mother and his speech therapist. All three are changed by the year of their working together. Joshy's adventure reveals how his silence becomes his greatest strength. The book explores the place of silence and listening in human relationships, and the treasures that can be found in both speech and silence.
