Session Overview: CAS is a complex speech disorder which frustrates many children, parents and clinicians. This webinar is designed to equip clinicians who work with children who are either older or have milder CAS with information which can help provide both effective treatment and advice to parents and young people with CAS. Using a case study approach clinicians will be guided through decision making before, during and following a block of treatment and the pros and cons of each focus treatment.

What I will learn:

  • Briefly review the definition and diagnosis of CAS.
  • Understand how the nature of CAS as a motor programming and planning disorder should lead to treatment decisions.
  • Recognise CAS treatments which are both evidence based and effective.
  • Explore Rapid Syllable Transition Training (ReST), Ultrasound Biofeedback, Integrated Phonological Awareness and other treatments for school aged children with CAS.
  • Understand the current knowledge about CAS prognosis and be able to counsel parents about CAS outcomes.

Who should attend?

  • Registrants must be speech pathologists or final year speech pathology students.
  • This workshop is relevant for speech pathologists with paediatric caseloads which include mild CAS, school aged children or adolescents

What do I need to read beforehand?

  • Prior to the event, participants will be provided with a case study to consider. This should take no more than 15 minutes.

CPD Points awarded: 1.5 PSR points
