Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the Walk for Apraxia-Atlanta.
I Walk for Apraxia to show my support for children in my community with apraxia, our shining stars. I Walk to show these stars they are not alone.
I walk because I have Childhood Apraxia of Speech. I was diagnosed when I was 3 years old and now I am seven. I wasn't really able to say my first word until I was four. I have been to tons of speech sessions since then and I still go a lot. My CAS won't ever go away, but with lots and lots of help I am finding my words. Hopefully one day you won't be able to hear a difference between me and anyone else! Now I am able to talk well enough to communicate but also have a device to help if my words just won't come out.
Every dollar raised helps support Apraxia Kids. I believe in the work Apraxia Kids 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.
