SATURDAY, JUNE 15 – LAST DAY TO REGISTER AT EARLY REGISTRATION RATE FOR THE 2013 NATIONAL APRAXIA CONFERENCE
Professionals and parents from thirty-six states are already registered for next month’s National Conference on Childhood Apraxia of Speech, with more being added each day. The conference will offer lectures and information focusing, not just on children’s speech skills, but also their overall language development, educational and developmental needs. On Sunday, June 16th the registration rate goes up, so register by Saturday and save! The registration rate includes the Opening Reception, Keynote Address, choice of any open session, access to handouts from all sessions, breakfast on Friday and Saturday, lunches on Friday and Saturday with topic tables and special programs, and access to the Exhibitor Hall.
Updates include a very special session for siblings which has been added to the program as well as some social activities for adults attending and also for those conference goers who are bringing the family to Denver while the parents attend the conference. Read and hear why you belong at the conference and should register by Saturday.
***A very special thank you goes out to Highmark Blue Cross Blue Sheild and Morrison & Forester who funded full or partial scholarships for over 30 parents!
WHY DO YOU WALK FOR CHILDREN WITH APRAXIA?
“How could I NOT participate? My son is so amazing and I want him and the whole world to know it. Last year was our first walk and I have never felt so much love and support for our family and for the kids. All my family and friends want to help raise awareness and funding for CASANA’s programs to honor my son and to help make things better for all kids with apraxia. We are really proud to be a part of it.” – L.M.
