My youngest daughter was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech a little after she turned 3. She began speech therapy at 17 months old.

This is a neurological disorder, it is the same thing that happens to dementia patients. It is the inability to make your jaw, tongue, lips all do the correct things for the correct sounds at the same time.

It is not that she does not understand.

She would say the same thing 6 different ways, So it was very difficult to even distinguish a pattern.

We use the Kaufman approach, she has a OT (Occupational therapist) and a speech pathologist (SLP) She had 2 years in a AMAZING public special needs preschool in our school district. She started Kindergarten this year and is doing extremely well in a main stream classroom. She has improved leaps and bounds and even though we still struggle daily I am extremely grateful for the progress. She does know all of her ABC’s but some of the sounds are incorrect and sound the same. Like T and E. So we are having a harder go at reading, but she is doing amazing!
