Apraxia Monday: In The News


My heart beats a little faster when I hear of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) making the news.  It’s exciting to see a less-than-known concern affecting kiddos has come to the attention of the media.  It means awareness is spreading.  It means our kids are being heard.  It means there are others “out there” who care about our children with CAS.  And that, to me, is a big deal.

The Kalamazoo Gazette just ran a story on the efforts of others who are planning a walk for apraxia in the SW area of Michigan.  In addition, you’ll find some good info on what apraxia is, how and where to find  help, and well as testimonials from those who are parenting a child with CAS.  Not only that, but I feel especially connected to the story as I know one of the parents personally–she was in  my Small Talk: All About Apraxia Group hosted this past spring.  (Talk about a small world, right?!)

  1. Couldn’t agree more! Apraxia diagnoses are increasing exponentially, but still, it’s not well-known.
