I’ve decided I have to turn this unique situation as an SLP and a mother to a child with apraxia into a positive experience. I can’t keep sitting around feeling depressed and worried. I”m a believer in signs from God, and I believe this a big one that has the potential to positively impact others’ lives. I’ve decided to make videos of Ashlynn for two purposes: one is for me to see and have a documentation of her growth, and the other is to possibly have examples and ideas for other parents on what they can do at home to work with their child.
I don’t know where this journey will take me or Ashlynn, and though I fear the road ahead may hold additional learning disabilities that she is at risk for, I’m not going to sit in pity. Ashlynn and I are a team and we are going to do something about it!
