Shedding Light on Apraxia: Understanding, Therapy, and Support

May is a time to shed light on Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), a condition that affects children's ability to speak clearly and effectively. At More Than Speech, we're dedicated to increasing awareness about CAS and the importance of seeking therapy. Let's delve into what apraxia entails, why therapy is vital, and how we can assist children in their journey to improved communication.

What is Apraxia?

Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a neurological disorder that impacts a child's ability to plan and execute the precise movements necessary for coherent speech. Unlike other speech disorders, CAS is not caused by muscle weakness but rather by challenges in coordinating the movements of the speech muscles.

Why Pursue Therapy for Apraxia?

Early intervention is crucial in treating CAS. Speech therapy tailored to the unique needs of children with apraxia can help enhance speech clarity, strengthen oral motor skills, and foster overall communication abilities. With targeted therapy techniques and consistent practice, children with CAS can make significant strides in their speech development and gain confidence in their ability to express themselves.
