Childhood Apraxia of Speech
Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder that makes it hard for children to speak. Children with the diagnosis of apraxia of speech generally have a good understanding of language and know what they want to say. However, they have difficulty learning or carrying out the complex movements that underlie speech. Kimberly Bell is Nationally recognized by Apraxia-Kids for Advanced Training and Expertise in
