any hope of getting over apraxia,if so how long?
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? I know that they can always have some speech issues the rest of their life but can you and others understand like a "normal" child. My son blabbers all the time. He has certain sounds for certain things but only myself, my husband and my mother are able to figure those out. Every once in awhile he will come out with a word or sentence but won't be able to repeat it (typical apraxia). But I am just looking for a shred of hope that he is going to get past this. So far I have not come across any success stories. Even with his autistic behaviors they thought they might be able to intergrate him by kindergarten but with his speech not progressing we are not sure that will happen.
Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated.
