    Does any one have a child with speech apraxia that they are homeschooling?

    My boys have processing issue's, but I know other homeschooling families who use "Small Talk". It's a speech curriculum written by a speech pathologist specifically for homeschoolers. You might also want to check out Dianne Craft, though I'm not sure if she works with SA?

    I know this was posted about a month ago but I have a 6 y/o who is developmentally delayed and has severe verbal apraxia. He is in ps and we just started T4L this week. I'm going to try it as a supplement and to hopefully get him ahead when 1st grade starts. I do have to sit with him while he does it to make sure he understands the directions. So far he has enjoyed it.

    I am homeschooling several children with special needs. DD10 has verbal apraxia, while ds8 has severe dyspraxia (including verbal apraxia) & autism. They also have multiple medical issues. dd10 progressed from unintelligible speech to typical speech (except to an expert!). She stopped ST at 4.5 after intensive therapy 7 days/week. She still has issues with spelling, and occassionally with pronouncing longer words. She is at an above average reading level, though She has always been homeschooled.
