We are participating in this year's Walk for Apraxia because We believe that every child deserves a voice! And deserves the help and resources to guide them on their journey to use their beautiful voice.
When Elizabeth was 2yrs old she was diagnosed with Apraxia of speech; a neurologic speech disorder. We had no idea what that meant for our little lovey. So like any parent we researched and spent long hours deciding what route to take to help her. Through many speech sessions, endless hours of speech work at home, and speech through school; she has come so far.
It hasn’t been an easy process; as you can imagine Elizabeth has gotten very frustrated as she retrains her brain & mouth to help her move the right way as she speaks. But she keeps pushing past it and trying over and over. We still have a long way to go but Lizzy is doing great and continues to develop her sweet little voice, and even sing us songs lol
Your support means that families just like ours will receive the resources they need to help their child speak. Join us today to help
If you can’t make a monetary donation, don’t worry. You can always join us on walk day, spread the word to raise awareness, or simply research what apraxia is to become more knowledgeable about it.
