We find ourselves so fortunate to have found Nancy Kaufman and her methods. Henry started speech therapy at around 20 months, and the Kaufman technique at around 26 months. He will be 4 next month and has made tremendous strides! He still gets speech therapy 4x a week at school, but I have a feeling he will be all done by kindergarten, that is the goal. For those of you that have read my blog, and are at the beginning of your journey with apraxia, this should give you hope. I remember a year ago even, wondering if Henry would ever have “normal” communication skills. I worried, worried, and then worried some more. I feel blessed that apraxia isn’t the top thought in my head every day anymore.
I can relate to the challenges that come along with treating apraxia and advocating for your child. From the therapy costs, insurance battles, and the costs of materials that may help. I’ve been there. I’m still there. I’m excited that Henry has mastered the first Kaufman kit and has moved on to the second. I know there are many of you out there struggling on this journey with apraxia and the cards are worth it, but pricey! If you could use this first kit, please enter this giveaway and if you like leave a comment telling me a little bit about your child. A winner will be picked on March 15th. Good luck!
