Eight Behavioral Teaching Strategies for Treating Childhood Apraxia of Speech

# e155   Eight Behavioral Teaching Strategies for Treating Childhood Apraxia of Speech

by Nancy Kaufman, MA, CCC-SLP

0.4 CEUs

$ 79.00



The field of applied behavior analysis (ABA) provides us as speech-language pathologists highly researched strategies to establish a behavior, improve upon a behavior, or extinguish a behavior. The behavior that we desire for those with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is for these children to become effective vocal communicators.

This program discusses eight evidence-based behavioral teaching strategies and motor learning principles that support the use of the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP). These include defining the behavior to change, establishing motivation, shaping, cueing, implementing reinforcement/feedback, errorless teaching, mixing and varying tasks, and practice within the natural environment. This course will focus on these eight teaching strategies with video examples. Offered for 0.4 ASHA CEUs – 4 Contact Hours.

Content Disclosure: This presentation will focus exclusively on the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol. Other treatment approaches will receive limited or no coverage as part of this training. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Define the eight behavioral strategies and be able to implement them in the treatment of CAS.
  2. Discuss three reasons why teaching successive approximations toward target words is an
    important aspect of the K-SLP and to CAS treatment.
  3. Explain how to implement errorless teaching and fading cues.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post test in order
to receive a certificate of completion.



Nancy Kaufman,

MA, CCC-SLP

Since 1979, Nancy Kaufman, MA, CCC-SLP, has dedicated herself to establishing the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP), a treatment approach to help children become effective vocal communicators. The K-SLP has evolved over the years to include the most current research in childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), motor learning, and applied behavior analysis (ABA), and its methods and materials are used by speech-language pathologists worldwide. In addition, many ABA specialists have adopted the K-SLP for children with autism spectrum disorders.

Nancy lectures locally, nationally, and internationally on the subject of CAS and other speech sound disorders in children. Families from around the country and the world travel to the Kaufman Children's Center for Speech, Language, Sensory-Motor, and Social Connections, Inc (KCC) in West Bloomfield, Michigan to participate in intensive, specialized therapy programs. The KCC continues to grow, offering renowned speech, language, occupational therapy, sensory integration, and applied behavior analysis (ABA) center and home-based autism programs.

Nancy serves on the professional advisory board of the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA), on the board of visitors of Wayne State University's Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute for Child and Family Development, and is the speech-language pathologist consultant for the Parish School and Carruth Center in Houston, Texas, and Suburban Speech Center in Short Hills, New Jersey.

Nancy has been honored by both of her alma maters: she received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Wayne State University in 2015 and the Outstanding Alumni Award from Michigan State University in 2010. She was awarded the Michigan Speech-Language-Hearing Association (MSHA) Distinguished Service Award in 2011 and the West Bloomfield Township Chamber of Commerce Community Excellence Business Person of the Year Award in 2015. She was also recognized by the Lawrence Technological University Leaders & Innovators program. The KCC has received MSHA's Clinical Service Award and Corp! Magazine's Best of Michigan Business Award. Nancy has three grown children and resides with her husband in West Bloomfield, Michigan.

"The discussions on prompting and cueing were most beneficial. I liked the explanation of treatment methods followed by a video of the clinicians applying methods." – A.C. (Feb. 2017)

"Videos are always helpful, but in general, the different approach to eliciting speech and approximating words in invaluable. I have never, in 20 years, had a CE course with this much value." – M.S. (Jan. 2017)

"I appreciated the 5 word lists to work on with children who struggle with very low intelligibility. I feel like I was previously just choosing words that I thought would work best. I liked the video models of using the information in therapy, too." – L.B. (Dec. 2016)

"Being able to teach word approximations that the child may be able to improve upon is most beneficial. The course validates the work and approaches I am utilizing to treat a current client with apraxia." – A.M. (Dec. 2016)

"I found so much to be helpful: The use of pivot words or phrase shaping; Moving from syllables to words then to phrases; Types of syllables; Types of Cueing Techniques." – B.W. (Dec. 2016)

"Reviewing the different behaviors for treating apraxia was extremely beneficial. The material was relevant and presented well. There were several things that were practical and could be easily done in multiple settings." – E.K. (Dec. 2016)

"Everything was excellent. The videos were great. Tying the information to an ABA framework. Terrific course!" – C.F. (Dec. 2016)

"I liked everything. Nancy's courses are always practical and applicable immediately in therapy." – L.L. (Nov. 2016)

"I really appreciated going over the differences in the various diagnosis - apraxia, aphasia, dysarthria, phonological disorders." – B.T. (Nov. 2016)

"I found the progression of expanding expressive language and when to introduce additional grammar components such as pronouns and articles most helpful." – K.D. (Nov. 2016)

"Very thorough, covers things that SLPs and parents may not always think about, e.g. too many questions, mixing it up, scripting after anticipating a child's response. I especially enjoyed the discussions on common SLP mistakes, pivot phrases, and types of language to be scripted." – L.H. (Nov. 2016)

"This has been by far the most beneficial course I have taken regarding what I do on a daily basis working as an SLP in an ABA therapy school." – C.M. (Nov. 2016)

"I loved the videos! It is great to watch Nancy in action and makes the various points more memorable." – S.H. (Nov. 2016)

"It reinforced how to cue and fade cues in a systematic manner. The video examples are always helpful to see these methods in action and they leave a lasting impression." – K.T. (Oct. 2016)

"The videos were outstanding in showing application of each teaching strategy, and it was also great to view each child's progress as they got older." – D.H. (Oct. 2016)

"Excellent use of PPT, discussion and video demonstrations. Very comprehensive, well done. Provides specific information and additional demonstrations of techniques." – R.U. (Sept. 2016)

"I liked the energy and knowledge (and obvious passion) from Nancy in her continuing work." – S.A. (Sept. 2016)

"All of the videos and discussion about their particular speech errors and plan of treatment for each were so helpful. Lots of information that I can use tomorrow!" – K.C. (Sept. 2016)

"This course definitely sharpened my clinical skills in this area, as Nancy's seminars/teachings always do! Interesting to look at CAS through the lens of ABA. Humbly, I will definitely be eliminating/altering a couple of my treatment techniques going forward because of this course. Thank you so very much for the opportunity to participate and learn from one of the greats in our field!" – V.H. (Aug. 2016)

"I really appreciated the thorough handout - there is enough detail in there that I didn't feel like I had to print the whole thing out just to take manic notes on it throughout the presentation. I also feel like there's enough detail that I can use the handout six months from now. Some courses only include skeletal-at-best notes, which are useless a short time after I've taken the course." – W.P. (July 2016)
