The Mouth With a Mind of Its Own by Patricia L. Mervine, Nayan Soni

Matthew has a problem. His mouth has a mind of its own. His brain thinks one thing, but his mouth says another. He can't participate in class discussions. He can't ask the other kids to play with him at recess. He can't even say his own name! Luckily, he is referred to the school speech therapist, who helps him tame his wild mouth.

This story was written by Patricia L. Mervine, M.A., CCC, a speech/language pathologist who works with students like Matthew every day.
