New book addresses the challenges faced by differently abled children
PARAMUS, N.J. – Children often have trouble accepting those who are differently abled. In the new illustrated children’s book He Talks Funny (published by AuthorHouse), parenting columnist Jeanne Buesser addresses the challenges faced by special needs children with Apraxia and other speech impairments.

With rich, colorful illustrations, He Talks Funny tells the story of Joey Brown, a young boy with a speech impairment. Joey is going to his first summer camp for kids with all abilities. He tries to make friends with the other kids, but they have a hard time understanding him. As a result, the other children begin to make fun of Joey. Mrs. Thompson, the camp counselor, steps in to try and resolve the situation, but she too has difficulty understanding Joey.

Mrs. Thompson calls Mrs. Brown, Joey’s mom, and asks for her help. Mrs. Brown comes to the camp and educates Mrs. Thompson and the children at the camp about Apraxia, the condition that Joey has. It’s a neurological speech disorder that makes Joey’s speech difficult to understand. Joey’s mom teaches Mrs. Thompson how to understand him and she, in turn, helps Joey makes friends with the other children at camp.

Children with Apraxia and other speech disorders are often made fun of and bullied. He Talks Funny seeks to foster understanding and tolerance for differently abled children with speech disorders.
