The Childhood Apraxia of Speech Handbook

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Due to limited research exploring Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), very few comprehensive sources exist for families with children diagnosed with CAS. The author paired family-friendly imagery with current scientific research to create a booklet informing parents about CAS. The author also surveyed Speech Language Pathologists to collect information that was currently unavailable in the literature. The essay emphasizes professional advice for families and realistic expectations of therapeutic outcomes. CAS is not a result of “laziness” and is theorized to have a neurological basis, which is supported throughout the essay with imagery. The essay reaches outside the realm of therapy and explores possible difficulties in the education system. Although there is little scientific research currently published, the essay outlines that CAS is manageable with support in all facets of the child’s life.
