Speech sound disorders in children are common, yet assessment and management of these communication disorders can be challenging, particularly when motor speech impairments are contributing to the larger clinical picture. This course will equip speech clinicians to characterize the relative contribution of phonologic, articulatory, and/or motor speech impairment to a child’s speech sound disorder. This course will further explore in detail methods for managing childhood apraxia of speech. Many clinical examples will be presented and discussion encouraged.
