Diagnosing and Treating Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Diagnosing and treating Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) can be challenging for many clinicians. The nature of the disorder requires that in order to effectively treat CAS, therapists must make a paradigm shift in their thinking, switching from a focus on language and sound production to thinking about movement gestures. Guidelines for evaluating pre-verbal and verbal children will be discussed and criteria for determining when to use therapy based on movement will be elucidated.
