Our SLP Directory is a way to connect families with a speech-language pathologist who has shown an understanding of and experience in treating children with apraxia of speech. Our SLP Directory has over 450 speech-language pathologists who are verified by Apraxia Kids as being able to provide evaluation and therapy services for children with diagnosed or suspected CAS.
Apraxia Kids screens professionals in a multi-step process including a quiz and short answer questions. This better ensures that those in the directory have the understanding, skills, training, and experiences to be successful with children with apraxia. The SLPs listed are based in either the United States or Canada.
Thanks to the funds raised by the Walk for Apraxia, there is no fee for SLPs to be listed in the SLP Directory. This unique offer ensures that SLPs with experience in treating childhood apraxia of speech are accessible to the families that need them, including school-based SLPs, SLPs in clinics, and SLPs in private practice.
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 and Canada that 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 and language department. 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.
If you know an SLP that is currently treating children with apraxia of speech, invite them to take the test to be listed in our directory! The more qualified SLPs that know about this resource, the easier it will be for families to find the help they are seeking.
