When I heard that there was going to be a NATIONAL Childhood Apraxia of Speech Day,
I knew that we had to have it proclaimed in our state, too.
I reached out to several lawmakers in Georgia and
thankfully Rep. Amy A. Carter answered the call.
A resolution declared that May 14, 2013 would be known as
Childhood Apraxia of Speech Awareness Day
for the first time ever.
If you don't know what CAS is, please read this post.
I can't think of a better way to end Better Hearing and Speech month.
Thank you Rep. Carter for always lending an ear, as well as a hand
and for being a voice for those children who haven't found their own voice yet.
