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.

Presented by Amy Meredith, PhD, CCC-SLP

The numbers, symbols and specialized language used in diagnostic reports for children with childhood apraxia of speech can be confusing at best, and using that jargon to explain a child’s current capabilities and future potential can be intimidating for caregivers. This webinar will help participants understand how to discern much of the technical terms and measures typically used in speech language pathology and audiology. The session will also address for speech language pathologists the types of information that should to be included in the report to make it more helpful to future professionals the child may work with, as well as family members.
