The Inside Edition segment about apraxia, and our nonprofit was so successful that it has been aired Nationwide on standby/repeat since August 6, 2001! http://www.insideedition.com/links.htm.
"Early on, we didn't know if Brandon was a late talker..." Scott Bilker, Brandon's Dad

"I was shy when I was younger because I thought no one would understand me. But now I'm more outgoing. I have lots of friends, and I try to make friends." Khalid age 13, who was not diagnosed with apraxia until age 8.
"I'm just so happy that I can help so many people." Rachel Horowitz, age 21 who didn't receive appropriate therapy for apraxia until high school. In spite of the beliefs of her public school and their inappropriate misclassifications of her, Rachel is now in her third year of college going towards a degree in special ed to help "special" children of the future.

The Cherab Foundation is a world-wide nonprofit organization working to improve the communication skills and education of all children with speech and language delays and disorders. Our area of emphasis is verbal and oral apraxia, severe neurologically-based speech and language disorders that hinder children's ability to speak.
The Cherab Foundation is committed to assisting with the development of new therapeutic approaches, preventions and cures to neurologically-based speech disorders. We bring together parents and medical, research, and educational professionals. Please join us and help to give our children a smile and a voice.
