SLP Mommy of Apraxia: What to do when you can't say "Trick or Treat"

What to do when you can't say "Trick or Treat"

Ashlynn said her first "trick or treat" on command at the age of four.  At three...she had an approximation, but then she froze when we went trick or treating.

Many people were polite and kind, not demanding she say something for her candy.  Others though, sat indignantly at the door waiting for "the magic words."  Because Ashlynn's strengths lie in social skills, she was always able to charmingly muster up the word "hi" instead, and most of them would give her the candy.

However, many of my clients report anxiety around this time of year for them and for their child with apraxia.  I've heard of some creative ways around this.

One client I had said she took her daughter with older cousins who all went in a group and spoke for her, if you will.

Another client had a sign that said "Trick or Treat"

A mom I've met through the fb group, made these cute and wonderful cards that not only say "trick or treat" for the child, but also spread awareness!!  I asked if I could share and she was happy to pass them along.

So here they are!!  Thanks Shelley for your generosity!

If you are finding these hard to print, feel free to email me at lauraslpmommy@gmail.com and I will be happy to send you along the PDF.
