Here is a "Wake Up" story from a parent of a child with apraxia:  

My wake up story

- A few weeks ago my husband and our 2 sons', were at a petting farm. It had a lot of animals in cages spread out over many acres, as well as other building which had exhibits. My husband took my older son to the men's room. While his back was turned, my son ran out of the restroom and vanished.  I was playing with my younger son in the stroller so I didn't know what had happened. My husband asked me where my older son was, had I seen him? I replied no, and was then told what had happened. We didn't know where to look. An announcement was made over the PA, that a boy was lost, with a description of him and his clothes. I very nice lady found him looking at a display case of miniature trains (which he loves) and let us know where he was. I have since gotten a id bracelet for him, since he cannot speak his name, with a diagnosis and a phone number.  If he ever ran again, at least he would have some id on him.  My point of the story was not to try to cause panic or paranoia. Please have some sort of id on your children especially when they verbally cannot express themselves.
Sincerely, Jeanne Buesser, President, Apraxia Network of Bergen County
