When you have a child with a speech and language issue, they have their own way of communicating...their own way of pronouncing sounds...their own way of speaking...and you become very proficient in this new language. This blog is all about "THEIR words, THEIR way"...simple as that.
On her due date, for that matter.
All 6 lbs 8 oz of her.
With the biggest hazel eyes and eyelashes to die for!
My special girl.
With Childhood Apraxia of Speech.
Some cognitive delays.
Throw in some Sensory Issues here and there.
My little buddy.
The hardest worker you will ever meet.
A little lover and hugger.
And the sweetest girl you will EVER know.
My second born.
My little man.
Well, I don't think he was ever that little.
All 7 lbs 12 oz of him.
Born 2 two weeks early because he wanted to arrive early.
So he made me pre-eclamptic.
Oh, so sick.
But all is good now.
He has some special needs of his own.
Guess he didn't want to be "different" than his big sister.
So he chose to get my attention.
He chose to have ear infections.
A total of nine in all, over a six-month period.
Throw in a little hearing loss, which he has since regained.
And is now about 9-12 months delayed in speech.
He is my little man.
A little lover.
With a little temper to match.
He's my boy!
And today, I have an absolutely out-of-this-world giveaway for you and your sensory child!
An item sure to help you with the woes of dressing and those itchy tags that seem to send your child into a sensory storm some days!
Drum roll please.................................
Let me introduce you to UnderCover Tape.
Designed by two Moms, Michele Naftal and Michelle Isrow, they were on a quest to solve a problem that many parents and individuals experience: consistent complaining about pesky tabs and irritating seams.
Using the catch-phrase "Ditch the Itch", their product does just that! Undercover tape is a hypoallergenic, latex-free self-adhesive tape that acts as a barrier between you and your irritating seams/tags on clothing, hats, socks, or anything that keeps you from feeling your best.
Now think of your child with special needs who has a sensory issue.
Combine an annoying tag with a sensory child, and you can imagine what kind of problems you may be in for.
I've got your attention now, right?
