Beyond WordsA Child's Journey Through Apraxia
Author(s): Dana Hall
Not every child communicates in spoken words; however, that hardly means they have nothing to say. Join us on a journey that showcases the power of friendship, connection, and imagination.
Beyond Words is a valuable social-emotional teaching tool. This must-have resource will compliment any home library, school, speech language program, or classroom. Through beautiful illustrations and thoughtful text, we come to understand the inner world of children that have differences that others can't see.
Children with speech/language challenges such as Apraxia of Speech (CAS) can often feel isolated and alone. Beyond Words creates an understanding of what life with a communication disorder feels like not only for the child diagnosed but for the child's peers. Along with highlighting the desire children with special needs have to be included it reminds us that everyone contributes in their own unique ways.
About the Author:
Dana Hall is a licensed clinical professional counselor. Her job is to help people to find their voice. When she found out her son was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) and faced the very real probability that he would never be able to verbally communicate, she felt lost. How could she help him connect to the world?
What she did not count on was that he would be teaching her the greatest lesson of all, our connection to each other and to the world is not dependent on any one thing. Not being able to speak out loud did not mean he did not have a voice. After years of speech therapy, it was time for Kindergarten and the Hall family was nervous!
This book chronicles her son's experience with his new friends as they go on new adventures proving that love and kindness go Beyond Words!
