Sample story: While working at an Area Education Agency in Davenport, Iowa, I was assigned to work with three brothers—all young, energetic, and very interesting. My job involved making home visits to deliver speech and language services to students. The first day I met them, I knocked on the door of the three brothers, walked into the home, and entered the Twilight Zone! The boys spoke only an invented language that no one understood except them. The language was so intricate that the code was never deciphered during my tenure with them. My first clue that something was odd came when the boys were introduced as “Willie, his brother Willie, and his other brother, Willie.”
