I will be walking for Apraxia on September 7, 2019 in Basking Ridge, NJ for my granddaughter Mia Rogers who was officially diagnosed with Global Apraxia to show my support for children with Apraxia, our shining stars. I walk to show these stars they are not alone.
Mia has been receiving therapy since she was 18 months old. Mia is 4 years old and has made tremendous progress, but she still has a long road ahead. She works extremely hard daily in school and attends private therapy after school 3 times a week. She can now speak in 2-3 word phases and is saying new words and sounds everyday.
I am trying to bring awareness to this neurological speech disorder that many have never even heard of. I, myself was not aware of this disorder until Mia was diagnosed.
If you would be so kind to share on your Facebook page or join our team “MIA’S MARVELS” Apraxia Walk to support Mia and other children with Apraxia or simply make a donation. Every dollar raised helps support Apraxia Kids. I believe in the work Apraxia Kids does to strength 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? YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND THE APRAXIA WALK, but 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 helping children with Apraxia of Speech find their voice.
