Fridays are fabulous in our house. It’s our day off, we don’t have preschool and most days we have limited obligations. Fridays are our catch up days. We relax, play, mommy cleans, and we can sit down and practice our words.
Having 2 little ones with Apraxia, at home speech practice is essential. Typically, we incorporate speech practice throughout our daily tasks and on Fridays we have a chance to sit down and go over our words.
Today, (Friday 10/21) I remembered to record Maya during our practice session. If you listen closely and watch Maya’s mouth, you can see how she struggles with motor planning. Her mouth becomes confused when trying to pronounce the “k sound” (coughing sound) and the “t sound” (tippy tongue sound).
Please take a minute to watch Maya practicing the k and t sounds. We are so proud of her. She is very determined and has an excellent attitude. CJ makes an appearance too.
