A neurodevelopmental framework for research in childhood apraxia of speech

This chapter describes the rationale, methods, and genetic findings for a neurodevelopmental framework for research in childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). The proposed framework is motivated by the consensus perspective that despite considerable research and clinical attention, the core speech processing features of idiopathic CAS and its clinical signs remain unknown. The goal of the research framework is to obtain this information from comparative studies of adults with acquired apraxia of speech (AOS), children with CAS as a sequelae of a neurological disorder, children with CAS secondary to complex neurodevelopmental disorders, and the putative clinical entity — children suspected to have CAS of unknown (i.e., idiopathic) origin. The discussion begins with an overview of terms and issues underlying CAS as a speech sound disorder, followed by rationale and methods for the proposed research framework. The final section summarizes findings and issues from eighteen studies reporting CAS in the context of genetically based neurodevelopmental disorders.
