For those of us with kids (with apraxia, obviously. Otherwise that would be weird.) starting school, here are some new handouts that might be useful. The first one made me cry. Of course.
- "My Child Has Apraxia" -- Letter To A Teacher to print and distribute to your child's teacher.
- Another handout "If I Could Tell You, I Would Say..." -- What kids with apraxia might say if only they could.
Follow Casana on Twitter for more good updates: http://twitter.com/Apraxia_KIDSNea started Kindergarten today. She was fine. It went well. I had forgotten over the summer what a punch in the gut it is when I ask her how her day was, and she can't tell me.
But she is stringing together more and more words. A few days ago she said, "No, Papa bru air." (Papa brush hair.) And on the way home from our trip to Minnesota she said, "O-mo dere?" (Almost there?) a bunch of times. Totally cute. And today she said, "No spiel ou-dide, rain" (No playing outside. Rain.)
