Children with suspected childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) who are struggling to find their voice often avoid taking communication risks in speech therapy because they anticipate failure. Children with suspected CAS tend to remain silent during speech therapy sessions, and therefore don’t make significant progress on their speech goals. Through our interactions as speech-language pathologists we can instill the perseverance, grit, and tenacity that these children need to deal with the challenges related to becoming functionally verbal. In this course, participants will gain specific strategies for helping minimally verbal children with suspected CAS become communication risk takers.
- List the five types of risk that children with suspected apraxia face on a daily basis.
- Explain the importance of determining the child’s optimum challenge point during speech therapy.
- Describe five strategies for helping minimally verbal young children become communication risk takers.
