Welcome to Super Julian’s fundraising page for the Walk for Apraxia.
When Julian turned 3 he was diagnosed with Apraxia of Speech. Like many we did not know what Apraxia was, all we knew was Julian was not talking so we took him to All Children’s to have an evaluation done and that is when he was diagnosed. Apraxia is a serious speech disorder that affects a child’s ability to correctly produce words. Children with Apraxia understand words but have a hard time communicating them. They knows exactly what they wants to say but unfortunately are not always able to speak it. Julian like many other kids has come along way in the past few years but still has a very long road ahead of them.
While the walk for Apraxia is a tremendous avenue to raise awareness about apraxia and raise critical funds for programs and research, it is also so much more. At its heart, the Walk for Apraxia is about the children. Walk day is a chance to celebrate the efforts, persistence, and resilience of children with apraxia. On their special day, children with apraxia get a chance to shine brightly – our shining stars. 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. So I ask that everyone show your support for all these beautiful boys and girls and help us raise awareness.
