IALP Child Speech Committee Panel 2 -SSD and CAS
Panel 2: SSD and CAS – How should motor planning disorders be classified in children?
For many years we have debated terminology for describing the needs of children with communication impairment across the globe. Researchers, specialists, clinicians, parents and individuals with lived experience of the conditions have contributed to these discussions.
The IALP Child Speech Committee have organised a series of panel meetings, ‘What’s in a name? How should we describe and define speech sound disorder in children and why does it matter?’, to discuss the overlap and distinctions between the label ‘Speech Sound Disorder’ and other closely related conditions. We invite you to join these meetings which will consist of short presentations by key figures in the field. You will have an opportunity to submit questions which will be considered by the panel on the day.
In this second panel meeting, invited speakers Professor Susan Rvachew from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, Professor Angela Morgan from Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia and Dr Edwin Maas from Temple University in Philadelphia, USA will discuss the relationship between SSD and Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) and consider how motor planning disorders should be classified in children.
