December 2020 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

It is hard to believe that December is upon us, and 2020 is coming to an end. This year has been quite challenging for Apraxia Kids as it has been for so many families within our apraxia community. Much like those families, Apraxia Kids has had to overcome unforeseen adversity. Each tough decision we made enabled us to support families and the professional community in unique ways as we all navigate and adapt to these unprecedented times.

We know that thousands of families are impacted each year by childhood apraxia of speech and that not all of them find Apraxia Kids and its resources. The isolation and fear we continue to feel in the wake of this pandemic is amplified for those families across the nation whose child is not developing typical speech. Especially if they have not yet received a diagnosis or answers on how to help their child.

Because in-person events became impossible this year, we transitioned our programs and services online to allow access to our resources conveniently and safely. Our online support groups remain a source of comfort, information, and connection as we continue to find ways to support our apraxia community. We have also worked to enhance our online resource platform by adding new educational opportunities, all available at no cost, so that our families have access to evidence-based information as they navigate their apraxia journey.

As we look to the future, we will continue to embrace creativity and flexibility as we explore new ways to expand our reach to meet the needs of our community. Our 2021 National Conference will be hybrid, allowing for the first time attendees to join us in person or online. If you are interested in presenting at the 2021 National Conference, please be sure to submit your application by January 6th. In addition, our scholarship program for the conference remains open until December 31st.

Apraxia Kids relies 100% on donations from individuals and local communities. We are not government funded and each donation we receive, regardless of size, allows us to continue serving the apraxia community as the leader in childhood apraxia of speech. Your financial support of our organization will allow us to continue providing valuable resources such as our Speech Tablets for Apraxia program now, and in the future when this crisis is over.

We hope that you will consider supporting Apraxia Kids this holiday season by investing in our future. Your commitment to our organization is greatly appreciated.

Wishing you & your family a healthy holiday season,

Angela Grimm
Executive Director
