Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

Acknowledging Traumatized Children
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art70319.asp
Children deserve immediate help and long term support when they are traumatized by current events or have suffered abuse, loss, health issues or injury. Acknowledging traumatic events in a child's life and following through long-term is the responsibility of family members and other adults who may also have been affected.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in children and in adolescents http://bit.ly/hcvsKu
Kids need positive, consistent, supportive relationships

Mental Health Matters: Trauma Changes the Brain -
http://tinyurl.com/ChldhdTrmaChngsBrn
Post-Traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in children and adolescents:
“Very different reactions may be seen in children who experience
multiple, chronic traumatic events from those who experience a
single, isolated traumatic event.”

.Apraxia_KIDS Motor learning theory should drive
the speech therapy - starts with precursors of trust,
motivation, shared attention
While you may teach some isolated sounds, the main
focus of therapy for #apraxia is on speech movement
sequences - right away!
.Apraxia_KIDS Single words don't have to be precise
before the child moves on and put words into short
phrases & practiced
.Apraxia_KIDS Sign language can be a prompt for verbal
speech & we can use it even if the child does not.
