Abstract: This paper reviews current trends in treatment for childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), with a particular emphasis on motor-based intervention protocols. The paper first briefly discusses how CAS fits into the typology of speech sound disorders, which is followed by a discussion of the potential relevance of principles derived from the motor learning literature for CAS treatment. Next, various motor-based treatment protocols are reviewed, along with their evidence base. The paper concludes with a summary and discussion of future research needs.
