Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is defined as "a neurological childhood (pediatric) speech sound disorder in which the precision and consistency of movements underlying speech are impaired in the absence of neuromuscular deficits" (ASHA Position Statement, 2007). CAS is an increasingly common diagnosis, but there is a shortage of empirical evidence to support the use of evidence-based practice in clinical treatment. Objective: This systematic review aimed to investigate the highest quality evidence available concerning the efficacy of different treatment approaches for CAS.
