Brief Answer:
speech therapy and parents can do the trick.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Speech therapy, biofeedback and hypnotherapy may be useful for controlling saliva.
Robinul pills, scopolamine patch, artane , inj. Botulinum toxin, raditherapy or surgery for destruction of the part which is causing excessive secretion are some of the tretment options available.

For improving speech whole range of communication shold be started early like video, audio communication.
Group learning, one to one communication giving them more time to speak.

Parents have main role they should start early intervention and on daily basis to improve speech.
Parents should learn to communicate more and more giving them ample time to talk.

Hope i help you.

i have chronic dirahea daily. I am taking lomotil 2 mg ,4 tabs in morning so I can get out of the house to go to work because there are no bathrooms along the way open at the time I go to work for 20 miles of my interstate trip. I have lost 25 pounds. I use to weigh 147 to 150 now 125 lbs. I eat like a pig but doesn't help me gain weight. I am losing my hair and I am tired all the time. I am getting almost house bound and on days I do not work I don't leave the house. I have had my first appointment with a specialist. He gave a me a script for robinul 2mg 1/2 tab morning and 1/2 tab evening. Can I increase this medicine a little bit before my next appointment in October? I am also a very nervous person on the inside and a worry wart. I have had this problem with my bowels for years. I don't want to start wearing diapers or a wig. Can you help me?

Hi my name is AAAAA I am pregnant and this is my 7th child. Every pregnancy I get excessive Saliva which leads to severe nausea and vomiting I was told for years there was nothing I could take for this. During my 6th child A doctor I spoke to said there is something that I can take while I am pregnant. I also get alot of postnasal drip which doesn't help the situation. Now I am on my 7th child and my doc prescribed something called ondansetron 4 mg, vitamin b-6 25 mg and something called ultra sleep 25mg tablets. When I tried to tell them that when I was pregnant with my 5th child all I took was one pill a day and the name of it started with a D. I can't remember the name but I am so upset that My doctor doesn't know what I am talking about and is offering me all of these other medications. So my question is the medication starts with a D and it is primarily used for excessive saliva. Do you happen to know what I am talking about? I am 2 months pregnant and I am miserable without this med.
