Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS)

An uncommon motor-speech disorder, CAS causes difficulty with making accurate movements when speaking. Speech muscles aren’t weak, but don’t perform normally, because the brain struggles to develop motor plans for speech movement. Usually noticed in children ages 18 months-2 years, symptoms vary depending on severity of the speech problem. CAS is often treated with speech therapy, in which children practice the correct way to say words, syllables and phrases, with help of a speech-language pathologist.
