Originally, I was drawn to speech pathology after my sister’s diagnosis of Autism at the age of three. Watching Diane struggle with language development and acquisition while other children seemed to grasp these skills naturally is what initially sparked my interest in helping families like my own. At the start of my junior year, I set out to obtain experiences working with different populations. Toward the latter half of junior year, I became involved as a clerical volunteer at the Sacramento Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center. By senior year, I was balancing a full course load alongside three volunteer experiences. In addition to Scottish Rite Childhood Language Center, I divided my time between tutoring at a neighboring elementary school in the Twin Rivers School District and serving as an intern at the Autism Center for Excellence (ACE). During my undergraduate experience, I welcomed the opportunity to work with students that struggled with literacy, language, and pragmatic skills. After graduation, it was my goal to obtain additional experience in the field as a speech-language pathology assistant.

There are many different language delays and disorders found in the pediatric population. Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is one of the most common of these disorders. Dr. Libby Kumin defines CAS as “a motor speech disorder where children have difficulty planning, coordinating, producing and sequencing speech sounds” (Kumin, n.d.). Apraxia does not occur because of weakness or paralysis of facial and oral muscles. It occurs when a child’s brain cannot properly plan the movement of body parts necessary for normal speech production (“Childhood Apraxia,” 2011). Though CAS is the most common name for this specific disorder, it is also referred to as a variety of other names. Some of these names include: dyspraxia, developmental
Children with APD have trouble processing the sounds heard into letters and words. Many children may hear fewer words which were really spoken, giving them the impression that the sounds heard are foreign and unfamiliar. On the other hand, some children with APD may actually hear the words being said however they can’t connect the words to their meaning. Children with APD develop a second nature to lip read and follow facial cues to compensate for their lack of understanding spoken language. Yet when speaking on the telephone these factors are not present, creating a difficult task for children with this disability.

Reflecting on Sally Richard’s case in the introduction, although fictitious, truly represents the process of what a sexual assault, rape, domestic abuse, trauma, etc. patient endures for SANE nurses to collect the evidence needed to support the victim’s case. For forensic nurses, they must ensure that medico-legal examinations prioritize medical care over corporeal evidence collection, with prosecutors emphasizing this on direct observation to ward off accusations of biased witness. Even though history and documented injuries collected by SANEs could be of use for prosecution of the accused, the record should be medically fixated, with careful planning to specialty treatment. For a reliable Medico-legal record, there are certain components
