How to help with return of speech

My 20y/o son is 22 months out from date of injury and is still nonverbal. His vocal cords have been scoped and show no sign of injury. He can communicate with his hands. How can I help him to regain speech???

As a therapist, how would you handle taking over a case where a patient has worked with other therapists already?

It's hard to stay engaged with a new therapist because there may be some overlap, or they focus on something tangential to what the patient wants to work on.

Have any of you experienced issues with your throat or voice and for a long time?

I am about 9 months into this journey. I was in speech therapy and switched drs. And they don't even want to start speech until I see an eye, ear, and throat specialist. I still get issues when drinking water and eatings things like watermelon, fruit..etc. my voice is deeper sounding and breathy. Will something need to be fixed surgically? Have any of you gone through this? Thank you in advance!
