Small Steps in Speech is a non-profit foundation created in memory and in honor of Staff Sgt Marc J. Small who was killed in action in February of 2009 while serving his country in Afghanistan.

Small Steps in Speech assists children with speech and language disorders by funding supplemental therapies and treatments for individuals. Our goal is to give children the chance to better express themselves in the world in which we live.

Small Steps in Speech is privately funded through individual donations and fundraising activities. We invite you to support our work with children through either an individual donation, by participating in one of our fundraising activities or by holding your own fundraiser to support Small Steps in Speech. You can change the life of not only a child but also their family with the gift of improved communication.
