The Follow Up

Charlie had her follow up appointment with the developmental clinic yesterday. Other than having to wake up before dawn, the day went pretty smoothly. Overall, it was uneventful. I’ll take it.

Her assessments didn’t discover any new issues. The doctor discussed his ongoing concerns. As Charlie grows older, it is becoming clearer that apraxia is at the root of her speech and feeding delay.

However, her speech delay doesn’t stop her from socializing.

Tonight, she was at the kick off of a March of Dimes March For Babies campaign. She enjoyed meeting the area’s team captains.

She also enjoyed exploring the grounds where the walk is going to be held.

    I’m so glad no new issues were discovered. The grounds for the March for Babies campaign is gorgeous!!!

    Our speech pathologist suggested the NACD Apraxia speech app. It’s good. There is another one but it’s $29.99 and I don’t know if Roo would like it so I’m hesitant to buy it. It’s by Injini.
