"Matthew has a problem. His brain thinks one thing, but his mouth says another! He can't participate in class discussions. He can't ask for a snack. He can't even say his own name! Then Matthew meets the school speech therapist..."
Speech therapist Pat Mervine created Matthew who has a really hard time talking. He knows what he wants to say but the words always come out very mixed up. In this book you and your child will go to school with Matthew who has a very hard time when he tries to say something to his teacher or classmates. It's funny and lighthearted, but shows how Matthew makes a huge effort to work on or his speech This book is also an easy way to start a conversation with your school aged child about speech therapy or to talk about a sibling or friend who might be in seeing a therapist.
This book is great for school age kids with Apraxia of Speech who might be in speech therapy or for those who are about to start and don't know what to expect.
