Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Ethan went to see a speech therapist today and we found out why he doesn't pronounce things correctly. the speech therapist said that he has a hard time getting his tongue to do what it should. She is not sure if it is because his tongue muscles are to weak or if the brain signals are getting to his tongue. She wants us to go see a neurologist to find out if the nervous system is working correctly. She still wants us to go have a hearing test done so that will be at the end of February. so until we find out more this is what we know. You can see more about Apraxia at the website:

Here is an update, Ethan goes to see the neurologist on Monday February 9th and then the school speech therapist on March 26th. His hearing test is scheduled for February 29th.
