Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Childhood Apraxia of Speech or CAS is a motor speech disorder where children have difficulty saying sounds, syllables, and words.

This is attributed to having difficulty planning and coordinating the fine muscle movements of the articulators to produce sounds and syllables. Although CAS involves speech sound errors, it is different from articulation difficulties and should be treated as such.

There sometimes is a misconception that a child who has Apraxia may “grow out of” their speech errors as they often appear inconsistently. However, it has been found that if left without treatment, Apraxia and it’s compounding errors can persist into the later years.
