Apraxia Support Groups – United States

There are apraxia support groups for families and caregivers of children with apraxia, electronically and in some states.  Additionally, special topic groups for Apraxia also are listed at the end.  It can be comforting and empowering to know that you are not alone and that you can both give and receive help.  Please let us know if you have a group update or new group to add by contacting Earnie at .

[Please note, we do not run the support groups directly, but share this for informational purposes.]
