SPEECH THERAPY

Speech has been an especially hard obstacle for our son. His apraxia has limited his vocabulary and progress has been painstakingly slow. But the progress is there and we continually push forward to help our son communicate to the best of his ability.

There are a few ways to approach helping your child with their speech challenges. There are many different reasons/diagnosis that go into the problems that these kids are experiencing. Your child's clinical diagnosis will be your first step in coming up with a plan. That will help determine your next step. This will usually lead you to a referral of a speech pathologist who will help you in more detail. 

Know that practicing at home is your best chance of communication growth. Repetition and consistency are key.
