Course Abstract

Childhood Apraxia of Speech is a complicated speech disorder in which the speech-language pathologist is required to juggle many goals and imbed them in grounded theory and effective treatment principles for this diverse and challenging population. In this webinar, Participants will view video segments of speech therapy sessions from three "master" clinicians and then watch as each apraxia expert reflects on what they would do differently in their own treatment segment. The three presenters will highlight basic information, challenges in working with children who have CAS, and important features of effective therapy as they share the reflections on their own practices.
