We specialize in working with young children with apraxia of speech and their families. CAS can be hard to identify in young children due to limited verbal output. We have specialized training diagnosing and working with this population.
We utilize a variety of treatment approaches for CAS, including The Kaufman Speech to Language Program, DTTC, and PROMPT, all the while ensuring therapy is engaging and meeting the needs of your individual child. We partner with you and your family throughout the therapy process and give you the tools you need to support your child on their journey.
