We knew something wasn't right when our son wasn't talking by 2. We went to Many pediatricians and was told "boys talk late -don't worry about it." After being persistent we were hooked up with an excellent speech pathologist who finally gave us the proper diagnosis of apraxia of speech. Max continues to make strides every day he has therapy seven times a week and is constantly our speech warrior. We will never take advantage of the gift of speech ever again.
Why I walk for Apraxia Kids!
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”.
