September 2020 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Our Apraxia community is the foundation of our organization. We remain committed to creating and sharing local resources with families on their apraxia journey and connecting these families to one another. As we navigate a new virtual world with our Walk for Apraxia events this year, we are working even harder to make these invaluable connections happen. By the end of 2020, an astounding 87 communities will have celebrated the Apraxia Stars in their area! Some of these locations will be celebrating for the first time in our 20-year history, and we are so excited to expand our community to these families that may never have had the opportunity to celebrate with us before.

As we look towards people like you to make these events a success, one of our Team Captains, Sarah, recently shared, “The Walk for Apraxia is important to my family because my (almost-four-year-old) son has apraxia. Before his diagnosis, we had never heard of it before and had no idea what it meant or entailed. We want to help advocate, educate, and help raise awareness. Maybe we can help a family with a child struggling to talk, and they are not aware of apraxia/speech therapy. We do a lemonade stand fundraiser every summer to help raise money for the walk. We have a brief conversation about Lucas and Apraxia with every person that stops by. Who knows, maybe we could change lives!”

The Walk for Apraxia continually brings our community together year after year to ensure that no family feels alone on their journey. The participation of our communities in the Walk for Apraxia is critical to funding our mission and services. By providing reliable information and support to parents and professionals year-round, Apraxia Kids impacts the lives of children with apraxia of speech so they feel like a shining Apraxia Star.

Some of those services include our State Resource Guides on our website. There you will find information and resources specific to your state to help you on your journey. In addition, our Parent Folder and New to Apraxia video are great starting points for those just receiving a diagnosis, or for those who might have been on the journey for some time and are looking for additional information. And, we also launched new homeschooling information and a resource list to support our families as they navigate going back to school in these unique times.

Please know that Apraxia Kids is here for you, 365 days a year. Our goal remains that Apraxia Kids envisions a world where every child with apraxia of speech reaches their highest communication potential through accurate diagnosis and appropriate and timely treatment. We believe that every child deserves a voice.

I hope you will join us in celebrating all of our Apraxia Stars at a Virtual Walk for Apraxia this year!

Thank you for your continued support of our mission and our future,
