He Talks Funny by Jeanne Buesser is a children's book that helps to create a better understanding and acceptance of children with Apraxia.
Apraxia is a "neurological disorder that controls the input from the brain to the oral motor muscles which provides speech."
The book is also a wonderful resource for parents and teachers with definitions and websites which provide further education about Apraxia.
He Talks Funny begins with other children excluding Joey, a boy with Apraxia, because of the way he talks. But, when the teacher is educated about Joey's disorder she is able to explain Apraxia to the students and they accept Joey for who he is.
He Talks Funny is available at www.amazon.com.
