Evidence-Based Treatment Methodologies for CAS

Rapid Syllable Transition Training (ReST)

ReST is designed to treat childhood apraxia of speech or ataxic dysarthria in children age 4-12. ReST uses nonsense words that sound like real words but do not have meaning, allowing the child to concentrate on accurate movement for sounds, beats (stress) and smoothness. Treatment sessions follow a consistent structure of training and practice. Training materials for speech-language pathologists to learn to do ReST are available for free on the ReST website.

CAS Teen Meet-Ups

We provide the opportunity to meet and connect with other kids who have CAS. The Meet-Up is facilitated by a licensed SLP who helps them feel comfortable communicating in a group. Please go to our webpage HERE to find out more!
