Silent Stars is dedicated to raising awareness of apraxia; fundraising for research; and providing augmentive and assistive communication (AAC) devices to those who cannot afford them. Marjorie Beto, founder of Silent Stars Foundation located in Glenview, IL, has a daughter who was finally diagnosed with apraxia in 2008. Later on, Beto started  Silent Starts to give support to other families facing a similar diagnosis. Visit www.silentstars.org to learn more about this outstanding organization.
