In the seventh and final module in this series, Cate provides information on Childhood Apraxia of Speech and discusses the recent over-diagnosis of this speech disorder in NYC Early Intervention. Then, she presents various examples of EI Apraxia evaluation write-ups and talks us through the differences between high and low quality reports.

This is a module series based on a series of trainings given in March and April of 2016 for the NYC Department of Health and Mental Health Bureau of Early Intervention by Catherine J. Crowley, J.D., Ph.D., a professor of Practice at Teachers College, Columbia University. The purpose of the trainings was to provide information about the NYCDOH Bureau of Early Intervention’s standards for culturally and linguistically appropriate evaluations to EIODs, agency coordinators, and evaluators in New York City.
