Today is Apraxia Awareness Day !
What is Childhood Apraxia of Speech:
An uncommon motor speech disorder in which a child has difficulty speaking.
By donating to the Apraxia kids fundraiser just know you are supporting a very special Apraxia warrior that deserves to be heard but cannot properly communicate using words. This fundraiser helps to find a cure, helps families get the speech therapy the child needs, and raises awareness as Apraxia affects 1:1000.
I 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.
I 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.
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation now or by joining our team. You, too, can make an impact for children and families affected by apraxia!
I believe, “Every child deserves a voice”.
