WRANGELL (2009-09-18) This weekend, Wrangellites will be geared up in support of a local child who has a rare disorder. Carter Hammer was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) when he was three years-old. Since then, his family had to make adjustments and receive outside help in order to accommodate his needs. The 2009 Wrangell Walk for Childhood Apraxia of Speech will take place, Saturday, at Shoemaker Park in an effort to raise awareness about Carter's disorder. KSTK's Tony Gorman was able to spend time with the Hammers to learn more about Carter and CAS and filed this report.
