Welcome to Sawyer's Warriors team page for the Walk for Apraxia.
Sawyer is considered to be on the severe end of Apraxia. Imagine having all these thoughts, feelings, wanting to join in, knowing what you want to say but all the muscles in your mouth, tongue and nerves in your brain do not want to cooperate or even move in order to form the words you need to express yourself. To not even be able to say "I like playing with you", "that hurts me", or "I love you". But he's our little warrior! He tries so so hard everyday to find his voice and be heard! And despite how difficult and monotonous going to therapy everyday can be, he still has a smile on his face! For this little 6 yr old boy, who struggles everyday with communication, expressing his thoughts and feelings, he brings joy where ever he goes. Please, help us support him and all the other kids who struggle with Apraxia.
We Walk for Apraxia to show our support for Sawyer and and all the children in our community with apraxia, our shining stars. We Walk to show these stars they are not alone.
CASANA has helped in so many ways! From connecting us with other parents and SLP's. Giving me the opportunity to attend an Apraxia conference so I could help my little warrior and better understand Apraxia. It has awarded a grant to help cover the cost of some therapy sessions when our insurance would not.
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.
