Advice & Tips: This approach is called a Communication Circle by my speech therapist. I have a number of friends who volunteered to come to my place and coach me through speech exercises provided by my therapist, who also trained the volunteers. They tell me about the positive impact on their lives - I know how positive it is for me!
