Monroe teacher’s nonprofit speaks volumes for kids
HINSDALE – The silence finally is being lifted in regards to what people know about Childhood Apraxia of Speech, and that’s helping children – and their parents – find their voice.
“When you tell people it’s Apraxia, they’re like, ‘What?’” said Barbara Matt, a third-grade teacher at Monroe School in Hinsdale who had two children diagnosed with CAS at the ages of 2 and 5. “Knowing it’s being recognized makes it real.”
CAS is a motor speech disorder causing children to have problems articulating sounds, syllables and words because the brain has problems moving the body parts needed for speech.
