Apraxia Awareness Day: May 14

by on May 14, 2014

 

Childhood Apraxia of Speech is a motor speech disorder in which children have difficulty programming and planning speech movements.

Top 3 characteristics of CAS

  1. Inconsistent errors with consonants and vowels
  2. Lengthened pauses between sounds and/or syllables
  3. Inappropriate stress on syllables or words

 

A licensed speech language pathologist is the appropriate person to diagnose CAS.

Early intervention is crucial for children with CAS.

Further information on CAS can be found at www.apraxia-kids.org.
