2021 Awareness Month Kick-Off

Dear Friends,

We are so excited to kick off Apraxia Awareness Month with each of you tomorrow. Together, we can  make an impact and Be the Voice for children with apraxia of speech!

Apraxia Awareness Month is our chance to educate and inform as many people as possible about our cause. However, we need you to Be the Voice in your local community as well. No matter how big or small, your story could mean the difference in one child’s apraxia journey.

As Apraxia Kids navigates the impacts of the pandemic, one thing has never changed – our commitment to further our mission. Tomorrow begins a month filled with education, resources, and celebration. We are thrilled to announce a few details such as:

  • Free WebinarsSelect webinars will be available for free during the month of May. Normally only available with a membership, parents and professionals will have a chance to utilize these in-depth educational videos to learn more about important topics related to childhood apraxia of speech.
  • Ask an SLP – SLPs with advanced training and expertise on childhood apraxia of speech will be answering frequently asked questions on topics such as assessment, diagnosis and treatment. You can tune into these Facebook Lives Thursdays at 7:30 pm EST on the Apraxia Kids page.
  • Walk for Apraxia Lunch and Learns – These live streamed sessions will center around the Walk for Apraxia. Learn more about how the Walk is a critical component for our community and how you can become involved. You can catch the “Lunch and Learn” series every Tuesday at 12:00 pm EST on the Walk for Apraxia Facebook Page.
  • New BlogsBlog posts throughout the month will feature resources on frequently requested topics such as IEPs. We will also share some insightful journeys of individuals impacted by CAS including a young adult who grew up with apraxia, a Be the Voice participant, and runners who participated in the 5K Voice Venture.

Current research estimates that 1 out of every 1,000 children is diagnosed with childhood apraxia of speech.  We need your help to spread awareness even in small ways.  Each day throughout the month of May, we will share a prompt from our official Apraxia Awareness Calendar on social media and welcome you to participate in that day’s action item. These actions include shouting out your child’s SLP, ordering brochures and printables, sharing advice, and so much more!  How many can you accomplish throughout the month?  In addition, we are asking our community to join us and be a 1 of 1,000 for children with apraxia by creating a fundraiser to support our mission. Every dollar helps provide support and education to the apraxia community.  Please be sure you are following us on social media to stay up to date for all of our announcements and supportive information.

Apraxia Kids envisions a world where every child with apraxia of speech reaches their highest communication potential through accurate diagnosis and appropriate timely treatment. We believe that every child deserves a voice. We hope you will join us this month as we raise awareness of childhood apraxia of speech!

Warmest Regards,
