Make a Difference!

When I first found Apraxia Kids, my child was 2 years old.  Like so many parents, I was looking everywhere for answers to why my child wasn’t talking yet.  I quickly found Apraxia Kids, immediately joining their online communities.  And suddenly, I wasn’t alone anymore.  I saw my child in so many others and knew I had found what I was looking for.  Parents just like me who had walked this same journey were online giving advice and encouragement.  I stayed up late many nights, reading Apraxia Kids articles and watching webinars.

Eventually, my child was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech; four years later, when she graduated from speech therapy, I remained active in the online communities.  But sharing my experience with others wasn’t enough.  We raised money for our local Walk for Apraxia and for other walks in our state.  We donated on Giving Tuesday and through our employers’ matching donation programs.  But still I knew that there was more that I could do.

Professionally, I work with nonprofit organizations every day as a consultant, bookkeeper, and tax preparer.  I reached out to Apraxia Kids offering my expertise on the Board of Directors; this has been one of the most rewarding volunteer jobs I have ever had.

If you’ve been wondering if you could do more to support Apraxia Kids, I challenge you to consider applying for a position on our Board of Directors.  Our job is to oversee the mission, strategy, and goals of Apraxia Kids while ensuring that the organization is a good steward of the financial support and resources entrusted to it.  We are parents of children with apraxia; we are adults with apraxia.  We are doctors, lawyers, business owners and executives, and experts in our chosen fields.  We are financial supporters of Apraxia Kids.  We are passionate about the mission of Apraxia Kids and believe that every child deserves a voice.

If you wish you could do more to support families with apraxia and you have professional experience or expertise that could be useful to a nonprofit organization, email me at info@apraxia-kids.org.  Please include your resume and a brief letter explaining why you are interested in a volunteer leadership role.
