Galactosemia Foundation Board of Directors
Come join a discussion and brainstorming session about the Galactosemia Foundation. What should the Galactosemia Foundation focus its resources on? How does the Foundation work today and how should it work tomorrow?
Children with classic galactosemia have 180 greater risk of a speech sound disorder compared to the general population. Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a neurologic (brain-based) speech disorder that is characterized by inconsistent consonant and vowel errors, unusual prosody (rate and rhythm), and difficulty with co-articulation (transitioning smoothly between sounds). We will be looking at video examples of CAS and discussing evidence-based treatment approaches.
