Children with speech sound disorders such as childhood apraxia of speech can be at a higher risk for reading and spelling impairments. The quality of phonological processing and the presence of poor speech articulation are predicative of later reading deficits, particularly dyslexia. This lecture will focus on why dyslexia often co-occurs with apraxia. We will discuss how to assess, identify, and understanding the cognitive underpinnings related to mixed disorders, as well as treatment strategies to facilitate early intervention. The importance of a dual-treatment model will also be discussed in addition to elevating other underlying cognitive proficiencies to become a fluent reader.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Participants will be able to identify the neurological origin of mixed disorders such as apraxia and dyslexia.
  • Participant will be able to assess and identify dyslexia markers in children with limited and disordered speech.
  • Participants will be able to balance treatment plans to execute both motor-planning and literacy development skills.
