Local restaurants are teaming up to help raise awareness for Apraxia the week leading up to National Apraxia Awareness Day on May 14. Chances are you know a child that suffers from Apraxia, you just may not have realized what it was.
Local restaurants have set days in May to benefit Apraxia Awareness. Chicken Express on West 7th Street on Monday May 9 from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.. Thursday May 12 at Pop’s Place from 5:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M., Twisted Fork on Friday May 13, and on May 14, Apraxia Awareness Day, at Orange Leaf from 5:00 P.M. to close. Just show them this story on your mobile device for preferred seating.
(I know a boy that is dealing with Apraxia. He is so sweet and is extremely smart, but sometimes his brain is a little bit faster than his mouth can make the words. He is very bright, but struggles at school because of Apraxia. The money raised with this week long event will help children just like him in our area.)
