Your voice can change the world.
Is your voice powerful?
It can be.
When you speak, your voice can have purpose, and the words you choose to use can have meaning. Your words can make someone laugh or cry. You can motivate, inspire or teach using your voice, too.
But what if you don’t have a voice?
Forty million Americans who have communication disorders don’t have the ability or strength to make their voice heard as easily as an able-voiced person. However, they find ways to overcome their barriers every day and make a difference.
In this book, find twenty memorable short stories about characters who speak with authority even though they battle adversity with a communication disorder.
This anthology was written to bring awareness to communication disorders and help readers find patience when working with people with these difficulties. It’s also to highlight that people who face these barriers are still highly intelligent contributing members to society.
The fun part in reading these stories is predicting each character’s outcome.
