“The use of  sign language, pictures, AAC systems, visual prompts, and touch cues have
been described as being extremely effective for children with CAS (Childhood Apraxia of Speech), providing functional communication while at the same time supporting and enhancing verbal speech production.”  Retrieved Aug 24, 2010 from http://www.asha.org/docs/html/TR2007-00278.html sect1.6 American Speech Language and Hearing Association (technical report)

“Selected
verbal language and speech skills are enhanced through music activities in special eduction populations.  Musical presentation of new vocabulary words results in an increased number of words learned and transferred in elementary school-age children.  Music is effective as a prompt and reinforcer to increase verbal response in preschool-age children with limited verbal communication”

“The use of sign language has proven to enhance vocal output, reduce frustration, and provide differentiation for words that “sound the same” in the early course of treatment“(for children with childhood apraxia of speech).  Retrieved Aug 24, 2010 from http://www.apraxia-kids.org

There are a number of features of speech therapy that appear to be most successful for children with apraxia of speech.  These features include *  “principles of motor learning” such as high degree of practice and repetition, correction, and feedback, slowed rate and a focus on targeted motor placement and productions *  Increased sensory input for control of the movement sequences and sensory cuing such as visual, tactile, and kinesthetic cuing, touch cuing, verbal cuing, *  Use of rhythm and melody  *  Focus on speech sequences vs. individual sounds”.
