Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the Walk for Apraxia
I Walk for Apraxia to show my support for my Gavin and other children in my community with apraxia, our shining stars. I Walk to show these stars they are not alone.
Apraxia of speech is an acquired oral motor speech disorder affecting an individual's ability to translate conscious speech plans into motor plans, which results in limited and difficult speech ability. Although Gavin understands speech, follows directions, etc., he has difficulty verbally responding due to this disorder.
Every dollar raised helps support the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association (CASANA). I believe in the work CASANA does to strengthen the support systems in the lives of children with apraxia so that each child is afforded their best opportunity to develop to their full potential.
I need your help. Would you please consider making a donation? Your donation goes to fund amazing programs like iPads for children who need it to communicate, parent and speech therapist workshops, research, and a program to assist families in need with speech therapy costs.
Thank you again for your support in this very important cause.
