Course Description:

Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder that is challenging to diagnose and even more challenging to effectively treat. This clinically applicable workshop will equip speech-language pathologists to become more confident and competent in the differential diagnoses and treatment of CAS and other childhood motor speech disorders.

You will receive instruction and hands-on practice learning how to structure therapy and develop stimuli that is:
  • Client-specific
  • Functional and rewarding for varying ages and severity
  • Incorporates principles of neuroplasticity and motor learning
  • Facilitates early literacy development

Attendees will have opportunity for hands-on practice using Dynamic Tactile Temporal Cueing (DTTC) and other evidence-based approaches. Demonstrations and video examples of actual therapy sessions will be shown throughout the workshop.
  1. Identify the key characteristics of CAS.
  2. Differentially diagnose apraxia of speech from phonological delay, dysarthria, and other communication disorders that result in speech delay.
  3. Explain how to apply the principles of neuroplasticity to the treatment of CAS.
  4. Plan effective assessment and treatment for children with CAS, using the five system hierarchy.
  5. Implement treatment for children using CAS with Dynamic Tactile Temporal Cueing.
  6. Demonstrate how to incorporate literacy into treatment sessions.
