Course Abstract

Parent involvement is critical to achieving successful outcomes in children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech. Research conducted by Edal and Gildersleeve-Neumann (2011) found that the more production targets are practiced, the faster a child can acquire the target and better the chance for generalization.

This presentation will focus on ways speech language pathologists can include parents, families, and caregivers in the therapy process to increase home practice. This can enhance the child’s rate of progress, generalization, and self esteem that results from their feeling of success and improved speech clarity.

The aim of this presentation is two-fold:

Review of the evidence supporting parent/caregiver involvement in the treatment of children with CAS and other Pediatric Speech Sound Disorders.

Share techniques that therapists can share with parents that they can employ at home with children ranging from those who are minimally verbal through older children with residual speech issues using the principles of Motor Learning.
