September 2022 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

It is hard to believe September is upon us, our kids are back in school, and fall is just around the corner. What a busy summer it has been, and it appears the remainder of 2022 is just as busy for us here at Apraxia Kids.

Walk for Apraxia is in full swing with 58 in-person Walk events across North America this fall. Our first few in-person events kick off this weekend. With September being Friendship Month, you can do your part to make new friends and reconnect with those you may have lost touch with in the past year by attending your local Walk for Apraxia. Registering for your local Walk is easy and, of course, free of charge. The Walk connects our families within the community providing support to one another, all while celebrating our Apraxia Stars who work so hard throughout the year. We hope you will join us and invite all of your friends for our 15th anniversary, celebrating why we Walk.

Apraxia Kids recognizes the need for resources focused on stress, anxiety, and mental health. We are pleased to share those with you as your kids begin a new school year. We have organized helpful resources for school and home in this blog and on the Parent Portal Info page and in each age group of the Parent Portal.

Apraxia Kids remains committed to providing evidence-based education along with support to our families. This fall, we will open applications for our Intensive Training Institute (Apraxia Boot Camp). This intensive, advanced training program is designed to strategically identify and intensively train qualified speech-language pathologists in order to boost their clinical expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood apraxia of speech. If you or your child’s SLP is interested in learning more, please visit our website.

In addition, our call for papers to present at our annual National Conference taking place July 6-8, 2023, in Plano, Texas, will open this October. The National Conference is the only major conference on the speech, language, learning, and life needs of children with apraxia. Those interested in applying to speak are encouraged to visit our website for additional details.

And finally, Speech Tablets for Apraxia applications will open on October 3. Each year, Apraxia Kids awards speech tablets to children and families in need throughout the USA and Canada. Children with apraxia can use these speech tablets for speech practice and/or as a speech-generating device. If your family is in need of a speech tablet, we encourage you to apply. If you know of someone who would benefit from this program, please share the link with them.

Apraxia Kids is proud to call each of you our friends. As our friend, we encourage you to continue spreading awareness about childhood apraxia of speech and furthering the mission of Apraxia Kids by sharing our website, including our new Parent Portal, with those families in your community who are on an apraxia journey. We will continue to develop new programs, education, and resources to support our families and professional community.

Thank you for your continued commitment to Apraxia Kids. Your support allows us to sustain our current programs, all while funding new initiatives throughout the year, including critical research on childhood apraxia of speech. Your donation, no matter the size, makes a significant impact on the work that we do each and every day.

Together, we are mission-driven, making a difference in the lives of children with apraxia of speech.
