Harper was recently diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech. Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder that maqkes it difficult for children to speak. Children with the diagnosis of apraxia of speech generally have a good understanding of language and know what they want to say. However, they have difficulty learning or carrying out the complex sequenced movements that are necessary for intelligible speech. So as we learn more about this and how to help Harper, we discovered this Walk for Apraxia.
We invite you to join our team at the Walk for Apraxia. By joining our team, you will walk beside us as we celebrate all the Apraxia Stars and support our efforts to raise funds for Apraxia Kids. With these funds, Apraxia Kids will continue 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.
Unable to walk? That’s ok! You can still participate in helping our team meet our fundraising goal by making a donation now.
