Two randomised control trials have recently examined the efficacy of the Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme- 3rd edition (NDP3, Williams and Stephens, 2004) for children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS, Murray et al, 2015; McKechnie et al, in preparation). The NDP3 is a psycholinguistic based, comprehensive published program designed to work on speech sounds, word shapes and suprasegmentals from the "bottom up". Group data from both studies demonstrate children aged 4- 12 years significantly improved their articulation and prosodic accuracy for treated items and untrained real words. This study examines (a) which individuals within the groups responded to treatment and (b) what child factors may be affecting their progress.
