this should not make me laugh

"The machine records the speech of a toddler throughout the day, then analyzes the sounds and noises of each word. Toddlers that pronounce certain words differently would then be able to get early intervention."

I can't stop laughing. It's for kids between 10 months and 4 years of age. Wonder what it does for (autistic) kids who don't produce "speech...throughout the day"?

If I worked at it, I might be able to be pissed off at the idea that here's yet another way that parents with resources can get help for their children who need it a whole lot less than some other kids. Mostly, tho, it just makes me laugh.
