I am participating in the Apraxia Kids Walk for Apraxia because my neice's son, Lucca, was diagnosed with CAS (a rare and serious motor speech disorder) at age 3 and has been doing intense and frequent speech therapy for almost two years. For him, living with apraxia means that his brain knows what it wants to say but has difficulty communicating to his mouth. Progress is slow and the gains are small, so much so that sometimes it can seem like there have been none at all. But Lucca is a hard worker and a fighter. I have faith that one day Lucca will find his voice.
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 for your support in this very important cause.
