Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a very challenging and complicated neurological speech disorder in children.  This little known disorder makes it difficult or impossible for children to accurately produce sounds, syllables and/or words despite having a good understanding of language. Invisible disabilities often coincide with CAS and may not be obvious to the onlooker, but can limit daily activities, range from mild challenges to severe limitations and vary from person to person.  This includes, but is not limited to ADHD, anxiety, epilepsy, autism, Tourette syndrome, SPD, non-specific learning disabilities, dyslexia, CAS and other speech and language disorders.
