Abstract

Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a complex disorder that is currently being over and underdiagnosed. Differential diagnosis is essential for guiding treatment as CAS is not easily treated using commonly known methods for other speech sound disorders. This course will outline differential diagnosis leading to appropriate treatment planning based on current evidence in the research. Extensive therapy-rich examples using videos will be utilized, with a focus on activities and therapy ideas to enhance and maximize treatment outcomes.

Learning objectives

- Review of current assessment procedures and instruments, and discuss dynamic assessment and elements of a motor based speech exam.

- Using assessment data to inform treatment goals

- Understand the principles of motor learning that guide therapy decisions

- Identify specific approaches and techniques in the treatment of CAS

- Outline therapy activities for getting repetitive practice

- Enhance parent involvement and home carryover
