Jake's Journey with Apraxia

And the Friends We Met Along the Way

journey thousand miles

The Nancy Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol was the first step in our journey with apraxia. When Jake first got diagnosed with apraxia, I was on a Google frenzy. I remember reading, “When a child has Childhood Apraxia of Speech he or she may need 3,000 productions of a sound combination or word to learn a muscle memory for that combination.

What?!? How is that even possible? So many words, so little time … and what a steep hill to climb. How would we ever make it to the top?

That statistic was mind-blowing to me because up until that point, our speech therapy lessons had been sporadic and inconsistent. There was no rhyme or reason to the words that Jake worked on. He didn’t work on the same letter or words each week and some of his first speech challenges were two-syllable words or complicated nursery rhymes.

When he got diagnosed with apraxia the week of his third birthday, he was speaking on a ten-month-old level. He spoke three words consistently: ball, pizza, and daddy. At this point, I began working with a new SLP at our public school system. I also started researching like crazy and learned that specific, repetitive therapy is required for apraxia.

A common thread in everything I read was Kaufman cards. Although our SLP at the time was not experienced with apraxia, she was willing to try this approach and purchased Kaufman Kit 1 for Jake. For the first time since we began speech therapy, I started feeling like we were moving in the right direction. Kaufman cards felt so structured and logical to me. Instead of entering into a world with a bazillion words to learn, we were starting at the beginning.

The first consonant sounds that a baby makes are: b, p, h, m, n, w, t, and d. This is one reason why a baby’s first words are “mama,” “dada,” and “bye-bye.” Kaufman cards focus on the first consonant-vowel (CV) combinations that a baby makes and once those are mastered, words are formed with those basic sounds. You begin with one syllable words and work up to two syllables. But, all words focus on those same beginning sounds.

baby first1 For the first two months our SLP drilled Jake on these consonants paired with each short and long vowel sound: ba,be, bi, bo, bu, pa, pe, pi, po, pu, etc. After he said a set of sounds, he would take a turn with whatever game they were playing that day. Once he mastered the absolute most basic sounds, we moved to the Kaufman cards.

A few of those early one syllable CV Kaufman words we worked on were: bay, B, boo, bye, bee, and bow.

The next progression was CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words: boat (a basic “t” sound added to bow), bone (a basic “n” sound added to bow), boot (a basic “t” sound added to boo), etc.

After a few months of public school therapy, we would eventually switch to yet another SLP who could offer more one-on-one, lengthier, productive sessions. This private SLP also continued on with the Kaufman cards and after about a year, Jake was ready to move on. I also worked with him almost daily at home on these words. For us, it was a progression of first being able to speak the words, but then being able to recall the word from memory just by looking at the card. Recalling was also very difficult for Jake.

    1. Carolyn says:

      I would love Kauffman cards because my son who is now 4 has a diagnosis of autism and apraxia. We adopted our son from korea when he was 2 1/2. Not only does he have these two diagnoses and delays but he is also learning the English language. Kauffman cards would greatly help our SLP and our ABA therapists.

  3. Sara Rodrigues says:

    Our little one was diagnosed with apraxia at age 3 but we had suspected it for about a year before that. There are no providers in our area so we do a lot of the work on our own. I’d love to have Kaufman cards because it would give us a chance to work with our guy in a more structured way.

  4. Helen says:

    I’d love to have Kaufman cards for my apraxic speech therapy students, to help them build better oral motor speech coordination for combining consonants and vowels to make words. I love the structured , 15 minute lessons!

  13. Jill Marie Hoel says:

    I’d love to have Kaufman cards because my daughter Sarah has severe Apraxia and no longer receives speech therapy from the school district as she is now home schooled.

For some reason, it won’t let me leave this reply using my Facebook, so will do so via my email instead.

  14. Lindsey Nielsen says:

    I’d love to have Kaufman cards because our intuition that my daughter had an issue with receptive and expressive language has now been finally validated by a Neuropsychologist. She does not learn like a typical child and the thought behind the Kaufman method provides learning tools specific to her learning needs. What a wonderful giveaway!

  19. Bridget M says:

    I would love them bc I just started my own practice & have recently had many parents of children with CAS reach out to me. It’s a small town and there aren’t a lot of opportunities for them. I’ve been trying to research everything and gather as much info as possible. Because I’m just starting, I don’t yet have the funds to purchase a lot of materials and these cards would really help! And hopefully would help many families over time.

  38. sarahedohl says:

    I would love to have Kauffman Cards because my son, Alden, and I are at the very beginning of this Apraxia journey and more days than not, I feel lost. At 2.5, he is so bright, and so happy, and so trusting of the world and all it has to offer. At 2.5, he is so proud of himself that he can make alphabet sounds, and is blissfully unaware that every time he does so, I smile and clap and say, “That’s right, baby!” And, on the inside I’m screaming at the cards he’s been dealt and desperately wondering how I can help him begin to turn those sounds into words. Any word. He doesn’t know that I lay awake at night and go through every moment of his babyhood and wonder if I did something wrong. Or, that it’s almost impossible for me to watch videos of my friend’s toddlers singing songs and saying I love you. He doesn’t know that I’d give my left arm to make this process easier on him, and that I lay awake at night imagining the day when he asks me for juice, or even tells me no, or says “I love you” in his tiny little baby voice. I would like to have the Kauffman cards because maybe they could be the first step to helping Alden find his voice.

    I also shared this contest on my FB page and follow you.

    1. Sarah, Beautifully written! Thank you. I share your heart … I remember those days. Most of us can relate to every single thing you are going through. I think age 2 to 4 is the worst with apraxia. Progress is slow, but your heart will fill with joy as each new word is spoken. I had to wait until Jake was 4 years & 3 months to hear I love you, but the words eventually came and it was sheer elation! Hang in there, one foot in front of the other, day by by.

    2. Carol says:

      Your messag brought tears to my eyes. My story is so much like yours. I also know the pain of apraxia. I had to close my Facebook account, because it was too painful hearing and seeing friends and family’s daily milestones. My son also has autism and apraxia is the cherry on top. I wish all the moms out there could have a set of Kaufman cards. Why must they be so expensive? Shouldn’t be that way. God bless all the childrens little hearts.

  49. ann cramer says:

    I would love to have Kaufman cards because I have been fighting my son go get an apraxia diagnosis for almost two years. Being stuck in a small town due to being a military family, no one would help us. The local SLP were not experienced enough and told us we had to wait until he was in preschool at age 4. I would like proper tools and resources to help my son strive to overcome anything he needs help with.

    I would love to have Kaufman cards because my 3 year old with apraxia could benefit greatly from a structured work plan at home. I would love to increase his vocabulary as he only has 20 words at this time.

    I’d love to have Kaufman cards because my son has recently been diagnosed with what they believe is Apraxia. He is still so young. I cannot afford anything to help him as I am currently laid off and their father has left…so any tools to help him, I would be grateful for. In addition, I would make sure they are passed to someone in need of them next, as I do with all of our children things. I follow you on social media.

    I’d love to have Kaufman cards because I want to give my grandson every chance available to beat Apraxia.

  56. Laura Bergen says:

    I would love to win the Kaufman kit because I feel helpless at times and a structure of the cards is a great way to help my son and keep me sane!

  57. Amelia Stephenson says:

    We would love these Kaufman cards because they are such a great, useful tool in the treatment of apraxia. Our daughter, Tatum, was diagnosed with severe apraxia of speech over a year ago. Last year she was receiving private speech therapy twice a week (60 sessions covered by our insurance) and an hour of speech through our local Early On program. This year has not been so easy. We have been denied more visits for the new year by our insurance company and we are only receiving one 30 minute session per week through the school. We pay out of pocket for the private, but she is not making the same progress as she was last year, as we can only afford to pay for one private session per week. These cards are something that she is very familiar with, and I just know that progress would be made if we won this giveaway.

Now we just learned today my daughter has a form of epilepsy that could actually be interfering with her speech and honestly anything would help tremendously! I work with her every day with what I know. Please consider us for the giveaway, my daughter would benefit so so so much from having apraxia, I can only imagine what would come out of her mouth after we actually got to use these cards how they are intended at home and not just for 30 min a week at therapy

I have been following you on Twitter and always look forward to your posts. Thank you for sharing Jake’s Journey with us and helping us to feel less alone.

    I’d love to have Kaufman cards because…I am a Speech Language Pathologist and I have recently started working with the pediatric population. I live in a rural area in the Appalachian mountains and due to the outstanding need for pediatric speech therapy I have stepped out of my comfort zone to help these precious children. I work for a small privately owned company who has never offered speech therapy. The company does not provide me with many materials so I buy my own and spend lots of time on the internet developing treatment lessons for free. I currently have children with apraxia on my caseload and have been attempting to make my own Kaufman program. I appreciate your blog & you making this kit accessible to someone in need. I follow you and I’m sharing this post!

    HI,

    I am really sorry I missed your giveaway. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and I have been doing a lot of research on Kaufman cards to use for my 4 1/2 year old client who has been diagnosed with Apraxia. For 2 hours each day we are working on basic sounds of words, many of them so difficult for him. I am trying to keep the parents encouraged and not become aversive to my client. Your amazing story about your son gives me hope.
    Thank you.

    1. Thank you for your sweet words, Faith! 🙂 And best of luck to your little student.
