Description of the Online Video
The online video course, intended for speech-language pathologists seeking intermediate level continuing education about the diagnosis and treatment of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) using evidence-based practice, covers the core principles of assessment and treatment including Principles of Motor Learning (PML). The video provides foundational knowledge related to CAS, including how CAS differs from other motor speech disorders and more common developmental phonological disorders. Effective methods to differentially diagnose CAS and develop a plan of treatment that follows principles of motor learning is also covered. The course includes video examples of treatment using the Dynamic Tactile and Temporal Cueing (DTTC) method developed by Dr. Strand. The presentation includes research to guide evidence-based practice. Treatment for different age groups and different levels of severity of CAS is discussed. There are no prerequisites for this course.
