It is also available on a ebook version too.
Read by speech and language pathologists, Who have found it quite informative. Look for reviews on Amazon, and my website.
The book can be purchased on my site.www.jeannebuesser.com,amazon, bn.com, authorhouse, any bookstore. You can also get it from the library. Please look at my new website.
I am trying to get the book "adopted" by the "core curriculam" in NJ under bullying, teasing into all the required lists for schools and libraries. If anyone can assist who is a teacher in education in that process it would be appreciated. I have written a talk to go along with the book. Please contact Jeanne if you're interested in hearing it.
One day, Joey was in the Camp Green's playground playing by himself....
I just wanted to tell you that I bought your book, “He Talks Funny,” and it made me cry. My son is the sweetest boy. I would say he is about 40% coherent to strangers and has sensory processing disorder and everything else that seems to come with apraxia. Sometimes people forget that kids with disabilities also have feelings so I just wanted to take this moment and thank you for writing the book to educate people about this disorder.

A Mission of Awareness Accomplished
A book to be read by parents, soon-to-be parents, siblings, teachers, classmates, and friends of a child suffering from apraxia.
This is a very helpful guide to and awareness of apraxia, what to look for, when to go to the doctor, and how to obtain appropriate help at school.
The author has done all the hard footwork in compiling a better understanding of apraxia, where to go, and what to do. You will not feel all alone when handling a situation whether among your own child or any child you encounter.
This author gracefully presents a very clear demonstration, using a seven-year-old child named, Joey, in showing how he speaks, and explains why unkind words affect children with apraxia.
She further portrays how children with this condition are actually rather smart, but have trouble speaking.
It's very important to look for early signs of speech delays in children, ages zero through three years, as it could be apraxia. Learn more about apraxia and what to do in He Talks Funny. Available in paperback as well as ebook formats.
