February 2020 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Although this year has just started, the excitement that our community already feels for what is to come is stronger than ever before. Our phone lines, inboxes, and social media feeds have been flooded with the same question – “What can I do to help raise awareness?”

Raising awareness is critical to furthering our mission. We know that 1 in 1000 children have childhood apraxia of speech. About 30% of families struggling with childhood apraxia of speech are connected to us, but there are still tens of thousands of children with CAS that are either undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or unaware of the programs and services we offer.

The ways in which you can raise awareness of CAS are endless! Sometimes it’s as simple as handing someone a brochure or telling a new friend about what your journey has been like.

Other times, members of our community want to volunteer their time to make a difference on a larger scale. To be giving of your time and effort is to show your local network how your love for these children goes beyond how you have been individually impacted by CAS. Making a difference means adding water to the lake so that all of the boats can rise.

One incredibly rewarding way to help all children with apraxia is to join a planning team for your local Walk for Apraxia. These volunteers work throughout the year to connect members of their community to our organization and each other, increase awareness of childhood apraxia of speech, and fundraise to ensure that we can continue fulfilling our mission.

As Apraxia Awareness Month draws closer, another opportunity to make a difference is by filing a proclamation in your area. A proclamation is a public or official announcement issued by your local government. This is a chance to have your local community recognize the challenges and struggles of children with apraxia of speech and proclaim May 14th as Apraxia Awareness Day!

Will you join us in making a difference this year? When we all work together, we can help reach the thousands of children that need our support.

Warmest Regards,

Angela Grimm
Executive Director
