May 9th - Terminology
Day 9 of Better Hearing and Speech Month
Today I found this on the Apraxia-Kids FB page and I edited it to put Cha-cha's picture on it.
It suits Cha-cha perfectly. "Apraxic" isn't an adjective that I use to describe him. It bothers me when people call children with apraxia, "apraxic" - many people (including parents of children with CAS) use it, but to me, it stings. It's not that I haven't accepted that my son has this challenge, but he's so much more than that and I'd rather use other uplifting adjectives to describe Cha-cha than "apraxic".
