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

The session will explore childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) from the perspective that CAS is a movement disorder rather than its typical categorization as a sound-based disorder. The presenter will discuss how to identify breakdowns in a child’s speech that are indicative of CAS, and give examples of practical tools to assess a child for the disorder based on these speech movement breakdowns.
