Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) impacts speech development from infancy throughout childhood. Therefore, a child’s therapeutic needs change with the acquisition of speech, language, cognitive and motor skills. We will recommend treatment procedures for children with CAS, taking into account the speech processes targeted and the learning mechanisms harnessed to meet a child’s specific needs along this developmental trajectory.

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify the most effective treatment procedures for the expansion stage of speech development.
  2. Identify the most effective treatment procedures for the babbling and integrative stages of speech development.
  3. Identify the most effective treatment procedures for the early speech development as well as the late speech development and refinement stages of speech development.

This webinar is eligible for SAC CEEs (Category A).
