Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS): From Research to Practice
Presenter: Ruth Stoeckel, Ph.D.
Dr. Stoeckel is a speech-language pathologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. She has worked as a clinician and independent consultant in schools, private practice, private rehabilitation agency, and clinic. Dr. Stoeckel is on the professional advisory board of the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA) and edited the curriculum for CASANA’s intensive training institute on CAS. She has presented both nationally and internationally and has co-authored articles appearing in the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research and Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
Diagnosis and treatment of children with severe speech sound disorders can be challenging, particularly when a child presents with multiple issues. However, differential diagnosis is essential for developing appropriate treatment goals and techniques. This course will review recent research that supports clinical decision-making regarding diagnosis and treatment of CAS. Assessment procedures, including standardized tools and dynamic assessment will be reviewed. Research on intervention practices will also be reviewed with a focus on how these studies can inform clinical practice for treatment of severe speech sound disorders. Video examples will be shown and small group activities will be used to demonstrate application of material presented in lecture.
