Teri Dunn, parent

My name is Teri Dunn and I am the parent of a daughter with down syndrome 7 1/2 with verbal apraxia. She has some sounds and some words but she tends to lose them. I have been told she has apraxia but not many people know how to do her speech therapy. and I've always asked how do you get a label of apraxia and I've been told that the therapist can tell. Where, is there formal testing that can determine verbal apraxia and why don't people know how to deal with it. I have just started researching it becuase I am so tired of her being frustrated over her communication and I get frustrated watching her trying to get someone elses attention. I would love any info anyone has.

Keep researching and looking for answers. You need to find a speech therapist experienced with apraxia who can give your child an accurate diagnosis and then treat them for apraxia.
