WELCOME! We are a northern New Jersey non-profit support group for families of children/adults with all aspects of Apraxia, located in Paramus. We are a New Jersey State Dept of Education Reg. Provider for CEU's.
Professionals are welcome to attend/join our group. Please indicate if you are a parent/professional when emailing.
OUR GOAL is to provide literature, networking with other parents, support and the newest information in the field. We are also affiliated with the LDA of New Jersey and the non-profit Cherab Foundation.
APRAXIA is a severe neurological disorder which controls the input from the brain to the oral motor muscles which provides speech. It is like having a loose wire or connection in the brain,and is a very frustrating disorder for the child and parents going through it. The children cannot produce the correct sounds to verbally make themselves understood. Children with Apraxia may have learning problems also.
Remember, you're not alone! We're here to help. Please check out our other website too. www.apraxianetwork.org
