SSIS and CASANA Partnership Provides Increased Funding

Great News!  Small Steps in Speech and CASANA (Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America) have announced a significant increase in the scope of their partnership to provide grants for children’s speech therapy.  Since 2013, CASANA has provided funds for therapy for children with Apraxia of Speech (CAS) through Small Steps.  In 2015, CASANA has tripled the funds available for speech therapy and communication apps for tablets!  We are so very grateful to our friends at CASANA and thrilled to have the opportunity to help three times as many children with CAS.  For more information, see the press release and application.

In Remembrance of Staff Sergeant Marc J. Small

Marc

Please join the Small Steps in Speech family in a moment of remembrance and respect for Staff Sergeant Marc J Small, the inspiration behind SSIS. Six years ago today on February 12, 2009, Marc left this world as an American Hero fighting the war against terror in Afghanistan. Marc gave his all to something bigger than himself and it is that selfless quality that guides our work. Through him we are making miracles happen and have helped over 300 brave children find their voices.

Honoring Veterans Day

We thank all our past and present Veterans for serving our great nation while thinking of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice especially our inspiration behind SSIS, SSG Marc J Small.

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation.” — George Washington
