REASONS WHY PAST ATTENDEES SAY YOU SHOULD REGISTER NOW!

 “I went the first year we were diagnosed and it was EXTREMELY helpful. Not only do you get the information from the professionals, but you get to meet other families who are struggling wit the same things. I have made lifelong friends.” (Lisa)

“You need to go, you’ll learn so much! I cried at my first conference and I mean that in a good way. Here was a whole huge group of people who understood and could relate to what I was going through day to day with my child. It was glorious. It was like coming home” (Traci)

“Go! You will learn so much!” (Jennifer)

“Regardless of where you are in your journey, the conference is for you. There are sessions for everyone!” (Susan)

“I went two weeks after my son was diagnosed! I would never have made all the progress we did this year without having all of the resources from the conference. I’m going this year too and can’t wait.” (Bridget)

“I have found myself angry at people who ignore him or treat him like he isn’t intelligent. They’re just not aware. They can’t see his disability for what it is. So I’ve made it my goal to try to empower them with knowledge. I love people knowing what his challenges are so they can understand him and support him. Labeling his challenge isn’t a problem. Labels help us know how to help.” Read More

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.
