  • Finding his voice: Therapy helps Freeman re-learn speech

    As James Freeman sat at his dinner table, eating a cup of yogurt, he tried to force out the word.

    “Consider,” he said. He struggled again. “I… con-si-der… myself lucky.”

    Freeman can carry on a mostly normal conversation, apart from about half his tongue being paralyzed. Several months ago, Freeman had no vocal ability whatsoever. His dysphagia that resulted from an elective surgery caused his mouth, tongue and several throat muscles to become paralyzed and unusable.
