Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the quality of life between younger children (ages 5-8) and older children (ages 9-13) with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). In order to measure their quality of life, children with CAS were asked both open and closed questions that were adapted from McLeod (2004). There were few differences between the two age groups on their quality of life. These findings indicate that the children with CAS in this sample have an adequate support system.
