Here's How to Treat Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Second Edition is the most comprehensive textbook available addressing assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). This text is the definitive reference for students and professionals seeking current best practices in treating children with CAS.

The book is divided into three parts. Part I defines CAS, describes those characteristics most commonly associated with CAS, and offers guidelines for conducting a thorough motor speech evaluation to support an accurate differential diagnosis. Part II summarizes the principles of motor learning and provides clear guidance for how these principles can be put into practice when working with children with CAS. Part III addresses specific topics of interest to clinicians and students looking for practical ideas on how to address the multifaceted challenges of children with CAS such as vowels, prosody, expressive language, social language, and incorporating phonological awareness in CAS treatment. Additional recommendations are provided for supporting the needs of children with limited verbal output and older children with ongoing communicative challenges, working with parents, developing treatment plans, and writing meaningful goals and objectives.

Each chapter of this second edition has been updated to incorporate the most current evidence-based information available on CAS. In addition, five new chapters have been added, including:

Principles of Motor Learning and Their Application to Treatment of CAS (Chapter 4)Evidence-Based Treatment Programs for Children with CAS (Chapter 10)Supporting the Needs of Older Children with Ongoing Communicative Challenges (Chapter 15)Using Apps with Children with CAS (Chapter 21)Developing Meaningful Goals for Children with CAS (Chapter 23)


Here's How to Treat Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Second Edition will be of value to speech-language pathologists and students looking for practical, evidence-based recommendations for addressing the diverse needs of children with CAS.

This title is a volume in Plural's "Here's" How" series. 

This text is the result of the author's research devoted to the understanding of the relationship between brain functions and communication, as well as years of teaching-learning and clinical experiences. It begins with a review of core concepts relating to the structures and interrelated functions of the brain. This information serves as the precursor to understanding the possible causes and nature of neurogenic communication disorders and related clinical issues. It also includes options for assessing the prevailing communication disorder and highlights the association between the etiologies and underlying neuropathology to overt communication symptoms; the rationale for their presentation is to foster essential critical thinking skills to derive at differential diagnosis and formulate a prognosis for recovery of the identified symptoms. The text selectively focuses on the description of language and cognitive-communication disorders secondary to brain lesions. It aims to guide students and professionals who diagnose, explain, and implement rehabilitation strategies for individuals with acquired neurogenic communication disorders. This objective is reflected in its elaboration of disrupted decoding and encoding of linguistic units such as symbols (words) representing semantics and morphology (meaningful units), and the rules (syntax and pragmatics) for using them during communication. The interconnectivity between language and cognition is stressed through establishing the influence of perceptual and cognitive functions on language/communication modalities of comprehension and production. Contributions from the fields of neuro- and psycholinguistics have been incorporated to help characterize and distinguish disorders such as aphasia, dementia, as well as traumatic brain injury and nondominant (right) hemisphere lesions. The text ends with the offering of diverse management and treatment options that strive to either restore or st
This book is designed as a course in the phonetic transcription of normal and disordered speech. What differentiates this book from existing approaches to phonetic transcription and conversational analysis is that it concentrates on linking together layers of detail to result in a complete record for the entire range of transcribable behaviors. Müller's book represents the first attempt to amalgamate differing methods to give phoneticians and clinicians a transcriptional tool kit, thus allowing them to generate a rich description of their data.

This approach results in a variety of layers of transcription, all or some of which are available to the clinician or researcher faced with the task of transcribing speech. The layers include a base, orthographic layer; segmental and suprasegmental phonetic layers; a gaze and gesture layer; a layer for marking aspects of discourse (e.g., overlap); and finally, a layer for highlighting behaviors of specific clinical interest (e.g., stuttering behavior). This book clearly lays out the various layers of transcription in this approach, illustrating them with normal and clinical data as well as exercises for the reader. Each chapter in the book addresses a different layer of transcription, with a final chapter illustrating how to bring the layers together. Worked examples accompany each chapter, and appendices provide a quick reference to symbols and transcription conventions.

Clinicians who need to transcribe speech samples for diagnosing disorders, planning treatment, and measuring treatment efficacy milestones will value that added precision available from use of the upgraded transcription techniques elucidated in this book.
