    Childhood Apraxia of Speech Types, Causes, Diagnosis, and Treatment Approaches Do you remember a time where you knew what you wanted to say but just couldn’t think of the word?

    I wish more people spoke about Apraxia in the way that I have witnessed it myself. I know it's impossible for outsiders to fully understand what Apraxia is like-what it feel like for the child, what the child is thinking, do they fully understand their impairment, etc. Fully empathizing with an Apraxic child is a challenge and it doesn't help that we aren't mind-readers. Despite this apparent challenge, I want to put you in this unknown perspective. I need you to understand what Apraxia is…

    I'm going to let you in on a little secret, the child diagnosed with Apraxia is aware. Perhaps more aware than others; when you can't talk you have a lot more time on your hands to analyze and size up those and things around you. Scary, right? But it's true. I was quickly aware, at the latest 2nd grade, that speech therapists utilized board games and toys to hide the fact that we were doing speaking drills, I was aware that Special Ed was for the slow people, I was aware that others were far…

As I stare into the horizon and watch every wave crash, I am reminded of my childhood. When I was a kid I often traveled to the beach with my family. My uncle and I spent endless hours creating some of the most complex sand castles. The castles had intricate designs with golden bridges creating our beloved kingdom. I believed the sand castles had become a permanent part…
