34 month old diagnosed with Apraxia
I have a 3 year old (Feb 2009) Who was just diagnosed with Apraxia. I have had her in the program early intervention and I was seeing no progress at all. She would say only 1 words and it was only about 30. She was getting so frustrated and so was her father and I. I decided to take her for a second opinion and it was then that the speech therapist said she beleived my daughter had speech apraxia. I had no idea what to even say or ask. I have never heard of this and I have 3 other children and my first daughter was talking at 15 months and Aubree is my second daughter and was not talking except 1 words. I now have an 19 month old who will repeat what I say but Aubree says it differant to her so she says it the same way AUbree does. I am so frustrated at this point I do not want my 19 month old to start delaying in speech. Aubree is in speech 2x a week. She will be going to pre-school in the fall but I am afraid to put her there because I have no idea how the other kids will treat her. I try to buy differant activities for Aubree to try and get her to express her words more but I am seeing no progress. I really would just like to hear from any other parent who is experiencing this because I feel so lost and sad for my little girl.
