Apraxia Kids has been a major part of our journey with Ellis. From information and resources to the annual conference, we have involved ourselves with this organization and learned so much from them. Childhood Apraxia of Speech can be a lonely journey when parents first get a diagnosis, so it is our pleasure to support Apraxia Kids so they can continue to support families and provide guidance and direction.
We walk to support all children diagnosed with apraxia of speech - our Apraxia Stars. To show these children they are not alone and to acknowledge all the hard work they must do to overcome communication challenges that affect their day-to-day lives.
We walk to raise funds for the mission of Apraxia Kids – to strengthen the support systems in the lives of children with apraxia of speech by educating professionals and families; facilitating community engagement and outreach; and investing in the future through advocacy and research.
