*nods* Yes. Yes indeedy......I really do think that the results from the sucessful oralists are partly due to kids whose parents have really good health insurance. I wonder actually if that's a big reason that private oral schools have declined.....a big part of their cost is really good speech therapy. When not a lot of insurances are super generous, you get public programs set up.
