ASHA – Apraxia of Speech

So, with Lulu’s recent diagnosis of Apraxia of Speech, guess what is on our minds? Apraxia of Speech!

ASHA.org is the American Speech-Language Hearing Association.

Ironically, Asha is what Lulu calls fish. Azha. Car and or Drive is Zha Zha. Well look at this!
“He had few vowels aside from schwa.” writes a mom of an affected child. Who would have thought Azha and Zha Zha could be a sign of Apraxia of Speech? There were other signs, too. Before she SAID Azha or Zha Zha.

Just wanted to share that tidbit. More to come. 🙂

    Isn’t it both a relief and a bit of a horror when you recognize things like that? Seeing the similarities is great but sometimes I just hate the confirmation of my fears.
