Apraxia

Hi my son has Apraxia Childhood Disorder and I don't know if group therapy will actually help him. The district said it would. Should I request another IEP and change his placement? My son will turn three December 3rd.


Sincerely,
Maria

Mediated play dates
by: Marianne

I went the mediated play date route, one on one, with another child, and a developmental worker, specializing in play. I hired her privately, and found that the one on one really allowed for the 2 playmates to develop an authentic relationship, and work on all that good social stuff. It sounds like a good idea, as long as the group is small, and allows for some specific targeting of your child's issues.

Group Therapy
by: Anonymous

Thank you for the information given to me regarding group therapy. I am worried he will not improve and get distracted instead of focusing on the oral movements necessary to produce words. Did your child improve with group therapy compared to individual therapy?

Give it a try
by: Kate

I would definately give it a try. Your son will be able to make friends his own age and ability levels and you will be able to meet their parents and possibly develop a support system with them.

If group therapy doesn't work - you don't see any progress you can always request they take him out and go back to individual therapy or take him to a private speech therapist for one on one attention.

GROUP THERAPY
by: Anonymous

I too was concerned when they put my son in a group therapy....but they explained to me that it can be beneficial because it takes a lot of pressure off of him. That's the thing about apraxia-pressuring him to talk just won't work. The group is fun and he's making a lot of progress. You might want to request a second therapy session that is individual. We did that..but I still like the group because he meets other kids who don't talk well and that makes him feel a little more "less different".

Good luck,
Jana
