Overview of Webinar:

School-aged children with CAS have special needs that may be less obviously associated with apraxia. These are often intertwined in more subtle ways with other aspects of their lives, such as academics, than those of younger children. In this webinar, we will discuss some of these needs and how SLPs can address them.

  • Describe articulatory, prosodic, grammatical, and literacy challenges of older children with CAS.
