Speech Therapy Matrix
Seek private evaluations from an
ASHA certified SLP (Speech Language Pathologist) as well as medical
evaluations from a neurologist and a developmental pediatrician who are
knowledgeable about apraxia as well as other disorders. Bring these
evaluations to your child's school with the guideline at this link which
is a guidelines for
how much speech therapy a child should have in school.
Apraxia ranges from mild to severe. That's why it's great to be able
to listen to various children with apraxia talk, to compare to your own
child. Great website for watching the 2 year progress of Brandon who was
first diagnosed with apraxia at 5 (After a hospital evaluation diagnosed

or 5 words!)
