The Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2000, exists to strengthen the support and systems of care in the lives of children with apraxia so that each child is afforded his or her best opportunity to develop speech. The association provides support, information, referral, education, and understanding, while also supporting research. Childhood apraxia of speech is a speech disorder in which affected children have difficulty correctly putting together the precise movement patterns needed for sounds, syllables, or words. Often, a child with apraxia understands language well, but has difficulty making his mouth do what his brain wants it to do.
