Some of you are aware that my oldest daughter has had severe struggles with her speech. At the age of 18 months old, she was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech. We were actually told a few months later that there was a very real chance that she would never speak. Thank you to the countless hours of therapy provided by many (and one very special woman in particular), my daughter can talk. Not only can she talk, sometimes .... she does not stop. We may not understand every thing she says, but she has come such a long way. My three year old also has apraxia, we've recently discovered.
On May 2 at Pinstripes in Northbrook, Silent Stars is hosting an amazing fundraiser to support CASANA (an organization dedicated to serving children with apraxia, their parents and their therapists). Please consider grabbing the kids and heading out for an afternoon of fun, bowling, pizza and philanthropy ... from 2-5 at Pinstripes. For more information, please visit Silent Stars.
Oh, and did I mention that you may just win some gift certificates to Soben Studios if you go???? Hope to see you there!
