Just one week to go till I make an appearance at the SE Michigan walk for apraxia. It’s going to be a fun time as we all support a complex, neurologically-based motor speech disorder (gosh, that’s a mouthful…ironically).
Here’s some information that you may find handy as you make plans for the weekend, from the Apraxia-Kids website (who sponsors the walks nationwide):
I’ll be there with my own family–a daughter who is also recovering from CAS–and maybe even a basset hound (who could use some speech therapy because all she seems to do is grunt and groan…it’s such a harsh life she leads). Naaa…we’ll probably leave Miss Sally Mae at home under the care of our neighbors.
Joking aside, this is a serious matter and I am honored to be asked to attend the walk. Not only will I be there supporting a good cause, but a lovely family who was part of my Small Talk: All About Apraxia group spring 2011. I’ll also have books available for purchase/signing ($20 cash, suggested retail is $24.95).
Come on out! Help spread the word on apraxia…
