Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the Walk for Apraxia.
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.
Tristan our oldest son has Childhood Apraxia of Speech, he was diagnosed just over a year and a half ago and with the right treatment, the right SLPs, the education I have been able to access and share with others (including his daycare, school, family members, etc), he has made significant progress! Just three weeks before he started JK in September 2018 he was unable to say his name... he is now speaking in sentences and is able to share some quite elaborate ideas with us finally! Lukas our younger son is also showing red flags for a much less severe version of apraxia as well. We are hoping even earlier intervention will help him flourish as well.
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.
