Differential Diagnosis and Treatment of Developmental Apraxia of Speech in Infants and Toddlers.
Davis, Barbara L.; Velleman, Shelley L.
Infant-Toddler Intervention: The Transdisciplinary Journal, v10 n3 p177-92 Sep 2000
This article argues that the use of developmental apraxia of speech (DAS) as a label for infants and toddlers who are prelinguistic may prematurely label a young child. Diagnostic indicators are reviewed and suggestions for diagnostic therapy to pursue appropriate differential diagnoses in the infant-toddler population are proposed. (Contains references.)
