Apraxia what's that?

Success Stories


We are very excited to announce that due to the growth of our other  nonprofit Children's Apraxia Network, and the partnership with Dr. Marilyn Agin, we started a new nonprofit foundation called CHERAB Foundation Inc.  which stands for 

  Communication Help, Education, Research, Apraxia Base  Foundation.  

We realized the need for a nonprofit that was able to outreach anywhere in the world, and that could provide funding for a broader base of research and education projects that promote healthy language development, with a focus on verbal apraxia in children, and Early Intervention.  Our websites and email list will be the same as usual, but they will now be under the CHERAB Foundation Inc.   

Thanks to Seton Hall University Law School!

We are proud to announce that  we were voted as the primary recipient of Seton Hall University's Law School's Competitive Grant.  more...

Thanks to this grant, as well as the continued wonderful support of our current sponsors and others, the CHERAB Foundation continues to work towards our goals to::

bullet Provide subsidized screenings for speech and language, as well as subsidized group therapy for the children.   
bullet Begin various research projects with participating hospitals, physicians and speech and language pathologists.  (Names to be announced soon.)
bullet Create much needed new schools/ and or educational programs for apraxic and other language disabled children.  
bullet Raise awareness to the medical community, which will raise awareness to the general public, about apraxia, and the importance of Early Intervention for any child who is non verbal at 2.  Our goal is to have professionals and parents learn the benefits of Early Intervention, even for children who it is believed "only have a delay in speech."

Late Talker vs Apraxia / CHERAB Foundation

 WHO WE ARE
 
CHERAB Foundation is a Non-Profit Organization, a partnership of families and professionals working together to provide support and information for those who care for children that are late talkers, or for those diagnosed with apraxia.  Our goal to is raise awareness about the importance of Early Diagnosis and Early Intervention.  We also wish to raise awareness about the world's number one disability, communication disorders, and when, how and where to go for help. 

LATE TALKER VS. APRAXIA?
WHAT IS APRAXIA?

 
Apraxia is a neurologically based, severe speech disorder.  Children diagnosed with apraxia need daily, intensive, appropriate therapy.  Apraxia does not affect a child's cognitive ability: many children with apraxia are above average intelligence.  If you would like an opinion about your child from a medical expert, you should know about our website's NEWEST feature, "Ask The Dr."  
 
WHY DIAGNOSE APRAXIA?
 
Most people view young apraxic children as "late talkers".  The problem is that not enough people know what apraxia is to consider it a possibility.
 
IMPORTANT:

Unlike "late talkers" who have a simple delay of speech, children with apraxia do not "grow out of it." With early intervention and appropriate speech therapy, most apraxic children will learn to talk, and be understood. 

THE CHERAB FOUNDATION CURRENTLY OFFERS:

bullet The ability to begin various research projects that will benefit our member's apraxic children in the short run, and all apraxic children in the long run
bullet Distribution of pamphlets, posters and flyers to be sent to Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Early Intervention Offices, schools and physician offices, as well as to the media, to further our outreach efforts.
bullet Information, resources and emotional as well as practical support.
bullet Family planned events
bullet Information learned at our meetings which outreaches for free to anyone in the world through our email list.
bullet Continued help thousands more families like these
