Give-a-way Winner: Lucky reader Meredith Lodge and her daughter Lulu of Conneticut were the winners of “Sing Out!”  Congrats to them both.  Enjoy exploring music and words with your little one. 

Apraxia Support/Education/Small Discussion Group:  Starting tomorrow (Tuesday, April 6th) and running for 5 consecutative weeks at Suburban Pediatric Therapies in Aurora, IL is a great group for parents and caregivers looking to connect with others who care about a child with CAS.  We’ll be talking about things on your mind: your apraxia story, the defining characteristics of CAS, how to help your child at home, how to find ways to cope, and how to network, advocate and seek out resources.  The  group is FREE and meets from 7-9pm.  Just call Suburan Pediatrics at (630) 236-7000 and tell them you’d like to be part of the group.  There’s still room.  You do not have to be associated with Suburban Pediatric Therapies to come!!  It’s such a valuable resource–feel free to contact me directly if you have more questions.  Hope to see you there! 

The Bunny Came:  Here’s a little speech story about the weekend’s festivities…Kate, my resolving apraxic daughter is such an early bird.  Easter Sunday was no exception.  She was up in her room rummaging through her Easter basket before the rest of the family was awake.  When we peeked in she told us, “I investigating candy.”  Investigating?!  Yes–such a big word from a little girl who just two years ago referred to the bunny as “Big Hop Hop” because she couldn’t say “Easter Bunny.”  But now she can say “investigating?!”  Go figure.  Thanks, SLPs for your hard work and devotion!
