Accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) can be challenging for seasoned and newer clinicians alike. How do we efficiently and effectively assemble and grow our CAS “toolkit”? This webinar will discuss practical tips – rooted in the principles of evidence-based practice – to strengthen SLPs’ diagnosis and treatment of CAS to enhance child outcomes.
You will be able to:
- Evaluate assessment measures and treatment protocols for CAS using critical thinking skills and principles of evidence-based practice (scientific studies, clinical expertise, and client values)
- Integrate the three prongs of evidence-based practice to effectively plan treatment for children with CAS
