Q. I HAVE HAD TROUBLE WIT MY SPEECH, SINCE A KID, AND CANT FIND A JOB TROUBLE WITH MY SPEECH

A. How old are you now?
What are your interests?
Are you sure the problem getting a job is your speech and not the way to dress or present yourself?
What other jobs have you held in the past and what happened to them?
I can think of a few places I have run into people with speech problems, such as the cable man or a waitress at a local restaurant. Consider asking a speech therapist what kinds of jobs other people with your particular problem hold.
