You will have to excuse my lame post today…but I will give you a few updates in the apraxia community:
- My family has registered for the Fall Apraxia Walk in Chicagoland at Ty Warner Park. This walk is sponsored by CASANA with coordinators from the Windy City Apraxia Network. The day of fun is scheduled for Saturday, October 15th 2011. Break in your walking shoes and come support CAS! For more information, or to register on line, see www.apraxia-kids.org/chicagowalk Do it before September 26th and get a FREE tee-shirt. Registration is $20/adults and $10/kids
- “Small Talk: All About Apraxia” is gearing up for the FALL sesssion! It’s 5 weeks of everything you ever wanted to know about apraxia. Our first meeting will be Thursday, September 15th from 7-9pm at Panera Bread in Naperville, IL. Please, ask your friends, family, teachers…anyone who may be interested in sharing and learning experiences with CAS. It’s FREE! Email me, firstname.lastname@example.org for more inforamation or to place your name on the interest list.
- I’ll be guest blogging sometime next week (August 22-26) on a great “new-to-me” site called Child Talk (www.talkingkids.org) hosted by Becca Jarzynski, CCC-SLP and also mom, which is quite valuable and personable in learning all kinds of things about speech development and kids.
- My book, Speaking of Apraxia is undergoing it’s first round of revisions with my editor at Woodbine House. If all goes well, you should see it in stores and on Amazon.com by early 2012. Yay!
