How do I know if my son needs speech therapy?

by Anne

He was referred to a speech therapist at the age of 3 because he wasn't talking yet, he just talked gibberish. He finally picked up to where he caught up to the rest of his classmates.

Now he's 14 and in H.S. and he is in English honors class. But I feel like it's very hard for him to express what he wants to say sometimes. It takes him a while to get to his point and sometimes his vocabulary isn't so great when he talks but is great when he's writing.

I have the same problem, and I was diagnosed as an adult with ADHD so I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Can you please give me some feedback?
