What does Apraxia Kids do to support children with CAS?

Apraxia Kids has many resources that are available to help families support their child. See our frequently used resources here.

There isn’t a professional listed in my area on your Speech-Language Pathologist Directory. What should I do?

The directory is not inclusive of all therapists experienced in childhood apraxia of speech. We are continually working to reach out to therapists across the US, Canada and even internationally who have skills, training, and experiences to be successful with children with apraxia.

We encourage you to check out a local university that may house a speech- language and hearing clinic.  There may be someone at the university that has some expertise or can help guide you.  You may also wish find the closest Speech-Language Pathologist in the directory and see if they are willing to work on a consultative basis, provide a treatment plan and/or be available for collaboration with a local therapist.  Some specialists may be willing to do video consultation to provide input for your child or to provide tele-health services. If you need additional assistance please contact

Are there any apps to help children with Apraxia?

  • Advancements in technology have afforded children with disabilities a variety of unique opportunities! For children with apraxia of speech, there are many apps on the market that can help with various speech targets. Please note that the type of app your child may require strongly depends on where they are on their speech journey. Your child’s speech-language pathologist can help you determine which apps may be best, but you can also join our Facebook group “Apps for Apraxia Kids” to hear from other parents!
  • For more information, please see the article in our library entitled “What About Sign Language, Speech Tablets, and Other Communication Forms?
  • Apraxia Kids has partnered with Penn State Health Children’s Hospital to share and distribute the Speech and Language Apps guide published by the department of Behavior and Developmental Pediatrics at The Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.  Apraxia Kids does not endorse any specific apps; the directory is meant to be a guide/resource.
