While it is not uncommon for SLPs to be referred young children and/or early talkers with suspected childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), making this diagnosis can be very difficult. What information do SLPs need to confirm or rule-out the presence of this disorder? We'll begin this class by clarifying the meaning of CAS and helping assimilate this information with video examples of several of the discriminative behavioral markers of speech-motor planning and programming impairment. We'll discuss what role CAS plays in a child's overall communication development in order to understand it fully. Next, the instructor will provide and demonstrate a test battery to diagnose and triage this disorder. In the final chapter, we will focus on how to interpret the results we have culled in assessment to identify whether CAS is present, and if so, what the relative contribution of this disorder is to the child's communication profile as a whole.

Treatment of Young Children With CAS

Treatment of Young Children With CAS

Once the SLP has identified that CAS is a major contributor in a child's communication disorder, the next step is designing and implementing effective treatment. The goal of therapy with this population is to reduce the child's speech-motor planning and, programming impairment and in doing so, increase their speech intelligibility. In this course, we will discuss how to remediate CAS in young children. Evidence-based practice will be shared to explain how to choose the treatment team, schedule therapy, write therapy objectives, demonstrate treatment techniques as well as cues to elicit accurate responses, measure progress, and help the child move from good practice in the therapy room to successful learning in day-to-day life.
