Here is a list of a few grants available for children with apraxia, speech disorders and occupational needs. You know of others please message me so I can include them for other families.


“Please note that Small Steps in Speech has received special funding from Apraxia Kids in support of children who live in or near locations that participate in the Walk for Children with Apraxia. Please see Part IX. of the application. If you do not find a location near you, you may submit an INDIVIDUAL application as Small Steps in Speech is funding children with apraxia”

There are a few other guidelines, here is a basic overview. Please refer to the site for the full details 

  • Valid until 22 years of age
  • Must be a U.S. citizen
  • Grants are not based solely on financial need. The financial needs of the family are considered, however, applications will not be accepted for a joint family income in excess of $150,000
