Apraxia Kids Canada Update

We continue to work closely with Apraxia Kids as we work to expand our support of Canada’s apraxia community.

Recent outcomes of this relationship include new support for Canadian proclamations and the development of a very exciting new Lunch & Learn event for Canadians at the Apraxia Kids National Conference in Pittsburgh this July.

In the coming months, we look forward to continuing to build on our work together and feel deeply fortunate to have the guidance of Apraxia Kids as we turn our focus to developing a plan for growth into the future.
