Course: #8279 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 5 of a five-part series, Current Best Practices in the Evaluation and Management of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS): A Multidimensional Approach. This course will review the evidence showing a relationship between early speech-language disorders such as CAS and later reading and writing difficulties. Intervention for CAS that integrates support for reading and writing skills will be discussed.

Part 4: Let's Talk AAC for Childhood Apraxia of Speech
Presented by Cass Faux, MS, CCC-SLP
