BE THE VOICE For Children With Apraxia!

This Apraxia Awareness month and all year long, we want to invite you to be an active part of our community by sharing what you know about apraxia and asking others to join you in supporting Apraxia Kids! Whether you’re holding a community-wide fundraiser or helping others better understand childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), let us know by filling out our Be the Voice form so we can keep track of your impact and support your efforts.

Through our Be the Voice platform, we welcome you to flex your creative muscles or take advantage of  something you already love to do while also garnering support for children with childhood apraxia of speech. There are endless ways you can support children with CAS – we want to hear what you’re doing!

Awareness Events

Every year, we hear about families who bring apraxia awareness to their child’s school, share information with their family members, or even help colleagues understand CAS at work. Whether you read a story to your daughter’s classroom, hand out information to the whole school, or have a “lunch and learn” in your office, every action matters.

Last year, a dedicated mom in Pennsylvania inspired us all with her beautiful wall of stars in her son’s school. After taking small actions in his first few years of school, like sharing notes about CAS with her son’s classroom and answering kids’ questions, she decided to go big! To engage the whole school, she created a PowerPoint about apraxia to be shown in every classroom and afterwards, every child wrote their name on a star. Every child’s star was placed on the wall titled “Apraxia Awareness – I Raise My Voice for Those Who Can’t” with her son’s outline reaching for the stars!

While we have come so far in raising awareness of apraxia, there are still so many people who won’t know about CAS until it impacts someone they love. Every time you share about apraxia, you decrease the likelihood that the next child diagnosed will be met with confusion and misunderstanding, but will instead be provided with the right resources and a supportive community.

 

 

Fundraisers

The quickest and easiest way to ask for your friends and family’s support is to start a Facebook fundraiser. Follow this link for easy fundraiser set-up – within a few clicks you’ll be spreading the word about apraxia while inviting others to join you in donating.

If you want to reach beyond your online social network, there are hundreds of fun ideas out there. Last year, Kaitlyn ran the Jacksonville Marathon and raised money in honor of her nephew. Summer held an online Pampered Chef party and donated a portion of the proceeds. And Amy in Sarasota put together a Donut Dash were participants came out to run AND enjoy some delicious treats, all while raising funds for childhood apraxia of speech.

 

Unsure of what to do? Check out a short list of ideas here. And don’t forget to check-in with your local restaurants who are often happy to hold a fundraiser night – it makes for a great reason to enjoy an evening out with your family and friends! There are so many fun ideas out there, we welcome you to come up with one that works for you!
