Workshop Description

Edythe Strand is an international expert on Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS). She has presented at numerous conferences and workshops as well as having written multiple publications on the topic of CAS. This is a unique opportunity for the Southern California SLP to attend and participate in a Dr. Strand presentation.
This one-day course focuses on both assessment and treatment of CAS. Assessment procedures will be described and interpretation of assessment data will be discussed to facilitate the participant’s ability to determine which children actually have at least some degree of difficulty with praxis for speech. A number of treatment strategies will be discussed and available evidence for treatment efficacy is presented. Video examples are used to facilitate discussion.
