ABC just aired a new series called Speechless. Speechless follows the journey of a neurotic, passionate, caring mother who will stop at no end to help her son living with Cerebral Palsy. This fun-filled comedy will have you laughing at every turn. It is the perfect blend of humor and the harsh reality of taking care of a child with special needs. In the first episode alone you will discover the stress it puts on a family, the struggle to live a regular teenage life while having special needs, financial struggles, battles with the education system and so much more. People with special needs are rarely depicted in the entertainment business. If they are it is usually for an Oscar worthy performance that lacks realistic and truthful portrayals. I can honestly say that I am proud of the writers of Speechless. They have managed to take a serious issue and turn it in to comedy gold with a strong message. I urge you all to tune in Wednesday’s at 8:30 on ABC!
