Rapid Syllable Transition Training (ReST)

Treatment for children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS)
ReST treatment has been developed through a series of research studies to improve the speech accuracy of children and young people with CAS.

About us

The Rapid Syllable Transition Treatment (ReST) was created to be a self-directed learning package for speech pathologists to learn how to deliver ReST treatment to children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) and information for parents and the general community.

Our research

ReST treatment has been developed through a series of research studies which have shown that, when delivered as it was designed, ReST treatment can improve the speech accuracy of children and young people with CAS. Details of the research can be found on the research tab.

Current projects

  • Weekly Treatment for CAS.
  • A pilot randomized control trial comparing ultrasound biofeedback treatment with rapid syllable transition training (ReST) in children with CAS.
  • Providing ReST treatment for CAS to more children, more often.
