The “All About Me” Book: How to Share Information About Your Child with New People

By: Sharon Gretz, M.Ed.
Sharon Gretz is the founder and current executive director of the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA). She also is the parent of a child diagnosed with apraxia of speech.

Sharon's personal journey with her son, as well as her professional dedication to helping children and families affected by apraxia is both inspiring and incredibly insightful. My hope is that therapists and parents will be moved and motivated by her story, her words and her passion.
