I have a 2.5 year old daughter who was diagnosed at 10 months with Ocular Motor Apraxia. A condition which effects the movement of the eyes mostly in a horizontal direction. She was just recently diagnosed with Apraxia of Speech as well, which effects the motor planning of the mouth. She is currently under the care of several specialists for speech and vision but I want to know what I can do to help at home.

I am absolutely inspired by Jenny McCarthy's story of curing her son's autism by controlling his diet. I do believe in these holistic cures but how can I be sure to find the right one for my daughter? Is it safe? I don't even know where to begin researching holistic cures for children diagnoses with apraxia. I absolutely support everything her doctors a specialists are doing for her but I am so unsatisfied with the "she'll grow out of it" attitude. Any thoughts on this will help. Thanks
