This session is eligible for Pennsylvania Act 48 professional education hours.

This session will explore intervention for childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) based on the view that the disorder is a movement (rather than sound-based) disorder. The presenter will discuss practical treatment methods that employ principles of motor learning to help children with CAS improve their movement gestures for speech. The session will use video examples to help demonstrate treatment procedures and allow participants to practice implementing these strategies in mock treatment exercises.
