Evidence-Based Treatment Methodologies for CAS

Rapid Syllable Transition Training (ReST)

ReST is designed to treat childhood apraxia of speech or ataxic dysarthria in children age 4-12. ReST uses nonsense words that sound like real words but do not have meaning, allowing the child to concentrate on accurate movement for sounds, beats (stress) and smoothness. Treatment sessions follow a consistent structure of training and practice. Training materials for speech-language pathologists to learn to do ReST are available for free on the ReST website.
