Publisher's Summary

Does your child seem to understand much more than he can say? Does he struggle to say words that other kids his age say effortlessly? If so, he may have childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), a neurological, motor-based speech disorder that is characterized by difficulty planning and organizing the speech movements necessary for intelligible speech. Fortunately, with early, intensive speech therapy, most children can have greatly improved or normal speech.

Written by a mother whose daughter's CAS is now resolved, Speaking of Apraxia (Second Edition) is extensively updated and jam-packed with reliable information and research, and it covers: speech basics; getting a CAS diagnosis; treatment methods, coping and advocating; working with speech-language pathologists; early intervention and special education; creating a language-rich environment at home; and preparing for school and learning.

New to this revised edition are discussions of helpful apps to stimulate and encourage speech; information on cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to treating CAS; considerations related to using augmentative and alternative forms of communication; and updated, parent-friendly summaries of important research on CAS.

Each chapter offers insightful anecdotes and tips, step-by-step approaches to address concerns, troubleshooting, ideas to augment speech therapy, and helpful resources, making it easy for listeners to zero in on their child's specific needs.

Wherever you are on the journey with your child's CAS, Speaking of Apraxia is your indispensable primer. It's also a must-have resource for speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and other professionals in child development.

Includes a downloadable PDF with Appendices and Resources from the book 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
