Verbal Apraxia Information "Can We Talk?"
A friendly, understandable website for apraxia.  "This excellent article by Ann S. Guild, MACCC/SLP with some additions Tracy Vail, MSCCC/SLP is reproduced with their permission in order to help all parents, grandparents, special educators and speech language pathologists understand our children. It is the best handout that I have seen. Please give it to anyone who touches children who display these symptoms."

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.

Talking Page
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 him with a "moderate delay of speech" at 3 when he only had 4 or 5 words!) 

Brandon relaxing after doing today's recordings.

Today is 3/8/01 and Brandon is 9 years 3 months. Quick brag...Brandon is a straight "A" student and earned three academic awards the first part of this year, 3rd grade.

NEW RECORDING!! Brandon and I (Dad) wrote the text and Brandon read everything that you hear. Click here to and listen to Brandon say, "My name is Brandon Bilker. I made the Talking Page so you can hear other Apraxic children speak. Thank you for listening."
