You could also use some of the research papers from these online PubMed collections Apraxia of Speech, Developmental verbal dyspraxia (DVD) / Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), and Aphasia dolfrog (talk) 23:11, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

A Lack of research based support references tgo support content.[edit]

The Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA) and The Cherab Foundation are not internationally recognised research organisations and do not use research citations to support their content. Very good support organisations i do not doubt, but can not be usd to support content in Wikipedia Medical articles which requirr secondary (review) research citation. So I shall delete these references, and leave the organisations in the External links section. For The require research based citations you could start looking at

to meet Wikipedia requirements dolfrog (talk) 09:15, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for your input on the sources. I will take a look at the pubmed articles within the next few days. Smassaro24 (talk) 17:18, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
