Is It Discriminative? Understanding the Different Characteristics of CAS

Is It Discriminative? Understanding the Different Characteristics of CAS

While a definitive characteristic for childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) remains elusive, it's noteworthy that discriminative characteristics indicative of CAS do exist. In this course, we will comprehensively examine all the features associated with CAS, distinguishing between discriminative and non-discriminative traits. Through the use of therapy videos, we will engage in exercises to identify both types of characteristics. By the end of this course, participants will gain enhanced confidence in identifying CAS-specific characteristics and a deeper comprehension of the discriminative attributes.
