Understanding Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Understanding Childhood Apraxia of Speech

May 14th marks Apraxia Awareness Day, a time dedicated to raising awareness about Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), a challenging motor speech disorder. Children with CAS struggle with planning and coordinating the muscle movements needed for speech, which can lead to inconsistent speech errors and difficulty with transitions between sounds and words. Early diagnosis and intervention are crucial, involving intensive speech therapy that focuses on repeated practice and multisensory approaches. At Chappelle Pharmacy, we provide educational resources and therapy tools to support families navigating this journey.

Join us in spreading awareness about CAS to ensure that children receive the early intervention they need. By understanding and supporting those affected by CAS, we can help these children find their voices and thrive. For more information or assistance with resources, reach out to us at Chappelle Pharmacy. Together, we can make a difference!
