"[W]ords will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth." (V for Vendetta, 2005)
The power of communication is essential; some say it's a necessity. We all do it: humans, insects, birds, cats, dogs. No matter which species we belong to, we all communicate. Unfortunately, some people struggle to do so. Damian was one of them.
Developmental language disorder (DLD), a speech and language disability which Damian has had from birth, causes sentences to come out muddled and slow, even though all Damian's ideas are there. In this audiobook, Damian talks about how DLD has affected his life and how the charity Afasic has been there to support him throughout.
Learn more about the struggles that Damian has experienced throughout his life. Finding a Voice recounts the journey Damian has taken - from the early years, when he was struggling to be diagnosed and have the disability recognized, to ultimately being heard as vice president of Afasic.
