The effects of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (Dyspraxia) on adults

Adults who were diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech as children

We would like you to be involved in our research project

If you (or a family member) are an adult who was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS; also known as Dyspraxia) when you were a child, we would like you to be involved in our research project. The project involves:
  1. Completing a survey about the therapy you received as a child, your education and employment and your family history of speech, language and literacy difficulties.
  2. Completing two psychological questionnaires to help us explore how your speech may have influenced your psychological wellbeing
  3. Submitting a recording of your speech saying sentences set by the researcher
    While we would like you to complete all three tasks, if you only want to do one or two of them we are happy for you to participate. 

Ethics committee approval number: 2019_335 


We are looking for people who:
  1. Are over the age of 18
  2. Were diagnosed with CAS when they were children
  3. Are fluent in English
  4. Have access to a computer or laptop with a microphone.

You can live in any country and do not need to have speech problems currently.
