Speechless is a new TV comedy series due to air on the 21st September 2016. It features a family of five including a mum who fights for the best for her son who has Cerebral Palsy. I’ve only seen the trailer but it seems that J.J. Dimeo (played by Micah Fowler) uses an alphabet grid and a head mounted laser to help him get his message across. Interestingly he seems to hire a ‘Voice Guy’ who speaks aloud on his behalf rather than use a speech-generating device.
Mum (played by Minnie Driver) seems energetic and there’s a good clip where she’s rather critical about the school’s wheelchair ramp (“It’s a garbage and my son ramp”).
