For new and seasoned clinicians alike, treating children with apraxia of speech can be a challenge. Because childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a motor-based speech disorder, a motor-based approach must be used in speech therapy. Traditional speech therapy approaches are not effective in treating CAS because they do not address the core impairment—motor planning and programming. This course provides a framework for establishing an appropriate treatment plan based on the principles of motor learning. Join Cari to gain evidence-based, clinically relevant therapy strategies that you can begin implementing immediately.
- Explain how speech therapy for children with apraxia of speech differs from therapy approaches for other speech sound disorders.
- Summarize the principles of motor learning and how they guide speech therapy for children with motor speech disorders.
- Describe the difference between motor performance and motor learning.
