Childhood apraxia of Speech (CAS, aka dyspraxia) is a life-long condition with genetic underpinnings. Its core is a difficulty making, storing and using speech motor plans. Recent research has shown that treatments based on the principles of motor learning can make significant differences to the speech of children and young people with CAS.
This presentation will cover a brief overview of the five treatments with the best research support – Dynamic Tactile and Temporal Cueing (DTTC), Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme, Rapid Syllable Transition Treatment, ultrasound biofeedback and the Integrated Phonological Awareness approach. Case discussion will be included if time permits.
