Apraxia Monday: Playing with your Food has Speech Pay-off

Standard

By Leslie Lindsay

I’m a crafty kind of girl, so when I have the opportunity to combine crafting with another one of my passions: childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), I am a happy camper.  Not only that, but I also enjoy myself a good snack from  time to time….so when I came across this resource, it was an eureka moment!

From the North Shore Pediatric Therapy website, an article by Deanna Swallow (December 19, 2011) “5 Favorite Edible Crafts for Kids and How to Encourage Language During Snack Time”

Who said you shouldn’t play with your food??!  Bon apetite!
