In supporting the speech and language progress of children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) or suspected CAS (sCAS), it is necessary for children to be encouraged to produce their practice words and longer utterances many times.
Achieving the necessary intensity of drill can be difficult, requiring patience and ingenuity from SLPs/SLTs and parents. Here are two slide shows for SLPs/SLTs to use to demonstrate to parents what is meant by 'many repeats'.
Note that early in intervention with very young children with CAS/sCAS, 'many repeats' may not be a realistic goal. For most children it is something you build up to.
