Due to motor planning impairment, children diagnosed with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) require specific therapeutic strategies in order to progress. This presentation will discuss evidence-based practice for appropriate treatment for CAS and other speech sound disorders. Principles of motor learning and choosing appropriate targets based on the child’s current skills will be discussed. A hierarchy of cuing to use with children will be explained along with incorporating functionality, prosody and literacy skills into therapy planning. Throughout the presentation, case studies,video clips and participant practice of strategies will be used to highlight these concepts.
