Rapid Syllable Transition Treatment (ReST) Program
Rapid syllable transition treatment (ReST) is an evidence-based treatment approach for children with Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). ReST uniquely uses non-words (e.g. kuba, deefa) to teach transitions between sounds and syllables and to improve prosody. Developed by Dr. Patricia McCabe, ReST has a well-established and published evidence base to support its use in treating children with CAS.
ReST therapy is most appropriate for children with CAS who:
- Are 5 years and older
- Have at least 4 consistent consonants and 4 consistent vowels
- Can participate in 10 minutes blocks of therapy drills
- Can tolerate 50-60 total minutes of therapy (with some fun involved too!)
- Will not get too discouraged if the therapy is hard or their speech is corrected
Typically, ReST is delivered in intense blocks of 4 sessions per week for a total of 12 sessions. We may have some flexibility in scheduling but we request you commit to the full 12 sessions.
Summer 2022 Schedule: July 18 - August 4
