Participants will learn how to differentiate between CAS, phonological processes, dysarthria, and articulation disorders. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on, small-group practice for the assessment, goal setting, and treatment of CAS disorder. Videotape examples will be shown throughout the day to provide demonstrations of both assessment and treatment procedures.
Participants will learn about research-based principles of motor learning and will be apprised of current, evidence-based treatment methods that employ these principles in the treatment of CAS. There will be an opportunity for small group hands-on practice utilizing two practical treatment methods that employ the principles of motor learning.
