If you haven't been to the website recently I have a new Parent to Parent Support Group feature. I would like to invite you to write in with your questions, frustrations or other areas you may need support in. You can fill out the online form and even add your child's picture. For privacy it is not required to include your name or where you are from, however you may do so if you wish. If you would like, there is an online form to comment and offer support to others.
If you are interested in seeing the new page, asking a question, or commenting on a story please check it out here: Apraxia Support Group
Here is part of a story written by Susan from Missouri, please read the full story and you are welcome to comment based on your experiences.
A little background...I have 3 almost 4 year old who was diagnosed officially over a year ago. He also has autism. He has been getting speech therapy for 18+ months. We are very lucky. He had started with First Steps and then when he turned three he started attending our school district's preschool. What's great about the school is that they have a special needs program and it's free for those with special needs. There he has speech and language therapies numerous times a week among others for his autistic behaviors.
My question to everyone is does anyone have a child that has overcome his or her apraxia?.............
Thank you for reading and I wish you the best for a full recovery from apraxia! Kate
