Ways to Celebrate Apraxia Awareness Day

As some of you know, the second annual Apraxia Awareness Day is May 14, 2014!  It was fun last year to be a part of the first ever Apraxia Awareness Day.


(read our Apraxia story here)

Even though we hate Apraxia, it's something that is very close to our hearts (if that's confusing, maybe this post will help a little bit).  I'm always up for a celebration of any sort, so I thought I'd throw a few ideas out there on how you can celebrate Apraxia Awareness Day with your Apraxia Star.
