Common Question About This Material
Can you tell me how your books “Becoming Verbal With Childhood Apraxia” and “Apraxia Uncovered, The Seven Stages of Phoneme Development” are different? Which one should I read first?
- Think of Becoming Verbal With Childhood Apraxia as Part 1. It is about how to get kids more vocal, verbal, communicative, imitative and interactive, and how to get them to play with the sounds they make. Read it first.
- Think of Apraxia Uncovered, The Seven Stages of Phoneme Development as Part 2. It is about how sound develops over time – from the vocalizations of the infant to the sophisticated consonant and vowel sequences of the three-year-old. Read it or listen to the recorded seminar second.
