Apraxia in the news

New support for parents of children with Apraxia. Quiet children may seem like a godsend to some parents, but for others, it's a sign something isn't right with their child.

Digital Recorders

Using Recordings to Understand Unclear Words by Scott Bilker
This article is long overdue. My wife and I have been using a digital recorder to help our son, Brandon, with communication, specifically with our understanding him.

Article from 5/2/03

Brandon and Press of Atlantic City staff writer, Mike Jaccarino. Mike wrote an excellent piece about Apraxia (and Brandon) in the 5/2/03 newspaper. It's a great article--check it out by clicking here.

Inside Edition (8/2000)

Also, check out some photos from Brandon, Kal, and Tanner's appearances on Inside Edition.

The video segment ran approximately five minutes and does a great job at raising awareness about Apraxia.
