A new study published in the International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders found that telepractice (the delivery of speech-language therapy via teleconference) was an effective means for delivering treatment to children with childhood apraxia of speech. Using the Rapid Syllable Transitions (ReST) method, the authors provided speech therapy to 5 children with CAS, 4 times per week, for 3 weeks.

While this is a very small sample size and a intensive treatment regime, it is always exciting to see any research into the various aspects of telepractice. We're all in favor of more, more, more!
