When a child isn't speaking, parents are often reassured that all children develop at their own pace.Many times, experts can't agree on what is normal and offer different advice.Understandably, parents may not know where to go or with whom to consult.In many instances, there is no cause for concern; however, in others late talking could be a symptom of a more serious problem.The outdated advice to “wait and see” can cause more damage than good.In this unique and unparalleled book, Laura Baskall Smith, a speech/language pathologist (SLP) specializing in Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) candidly describes her daughter's personal journey with overcoming apraxia while providing expert resources and tips for parents and professionals.Having been a practicing SLP before the birth and diagnosis of her daughter, Laura offers her distinctive professional and personal perspectives being on both sides of this complex, neurological speech disorder.
