Outreach

Volunteer Outreach remains a critical component of our organization. Working together, we provide access to appropriate and dependable resources, to ensure every child with apraxia is afforded their best opportunity to develop optimal communication skills.

WHAT DOES COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROVIDE?

Our Volunteer Outreach Coordinators will provide localized support to enable parents and professionals in all geographic areas across the United States, including remote and under-served areas, access to appropriate, and dependable resources. They will work collectively with local volunteers and professionals to ensure every child with apraxia is afforded their best opportunity to develop optimal communication skills.

Volunteer Outreach Coordinators will partner with Apraxia Kids to create a system of localized resources, educational support, and training opportunities for parents and professionals. They will create direct affiliation and communication between regional resources and the National office all while developing relationships throughout the apraxia community.
