Here’s How to Treat Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Third Edition offers clinicians and students of speech-language pathology (SLP) a comprehensive look at the assessment, differential diagnosis, and treatment of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). This book helps guide the SLP on which assessment tasks will provide the information needed to make a confident diagnosis of CAS at different stages of development, as well as best practices for treatment of CAS.

The authors take a deep dive into application of evidence-based treatment strategies for children with CAS, and move beyond theoretical ideas to provide recommendations of specific activities to facilitate improved speech praxis in children across age groups, making this book extremely informative and practical. This latest edition maintains the original intention of the prior editions—to provide clinicians and students with a holistic look at the complex needs of children with CAS and to offer practical ideas for evaluation and treatment. The amount of new research over the past several years has been substantial. Fortunately for the readers, Here’s How to Treat Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Third Edition summarizes the most current research regarding the nature of CAS, best practices in evaluation, and effective treatment strategies to give clinicians greater confidence in working with children with this complex speech disorder.

New to the Third Edition

  • Updates to reflect the current research findings related to the genetic and neurogenic correlates of CAS, as well as the features of CAS that are most sensitive and specific to consider when making a differential diagnosis
  • New chapters on unique needs of children with co-occurring challenges, such as ADHD, dysarthria, and developmental coordination disorder, and treatment of CAS via telepractice
  • PluralPlus online ancillary resources with downloadable forms and videos
