Presenter: Heather Rusiewicz, PhD, CCC-SLP
The management of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) often intensely focuses on speech production objectives. While addressing speech sound skills is essential during intervention, it is also important to expand the therapeutic focus beyond the phoneme and even beyond the client. Consideration of the experiences of children with CAS and their families will help lead to more functional outcomes in day-to-day interactions. This presentation will review literature on the impact of CAS and the family unit according to the experiences and perceptions of parents. Ways in which to incorporate the larger family and social circles in patient- and family-centered care practices will be discussed.
Registration for this presentation will open soon!
