Abstract [en]

Two advanced courses on oral and verbal apraxia in children have been held at Linköping University in the spring of 2009 and 2011. Several international researchers participated as lecturers and contributed to the success of the courses and the high course evaluations. As an examination assignment several students chose to do case studies investigating the treatment outcome of different methods for children or teenagers with oral and verbal apraxia. Many were inspired by the method Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing, DTTC that was thoroughly described by Professor Edythe Strand during the course. The case studies are presented as chapters in the present publication. Most chapters are written in English but some also in Swedish depending on the requirements of the specific course. At present there is a significant lack of treatment efficacy research in the area of childhood verbal apraxia, and many publications have indicated the need for this type of clinical research. Since these reports represent an important contribution to the limited number of outcome studies in children with diagnosed or suspected CAS we decided to make them available to a larger audience.
