Description

Workout Book group session

Learn strategies to help children with apraxia of speech begin progressing immediately from a simple core vocabulary
toward phrases and sentences.

Children with apraxia of speech (CAS) display a unique set of challenges for the speech-language pathologist. These children are often unable to speak or are unintelligible because they either lack an adequate repertoire of consonants and vowels in isolation, or because they have difficulty combining the oral motor movements necessary to sustain the motor plan of words. These characteristics of CAS require specific strategies and methods to obtain positive therapy outcomes that allow children with CAS to become effective vocal communicators.

This clinically-based seminar will discuss the Kaufman Speech To Language Protocol (K-SLP) for both evaluation and treatment of CAS. The evaluation segment will focus on identifying which vowels, consonants and syllable shapes are within the child's repertoire and whether or not there are core characteristics of CAS so that specific and targeted interventions can be planned. The extensive treatment segment will explain how to incorporate phonemic simplification, successive word approximations and pivot syllables, words, and phrases into therapy and why these evidence-based methods have proven highly effective for CAS and other sound disorders. Actual treatment session video clips will be shown to demonstrate to participants how they can move children with CAS and other sound disorders from a simple core vocabulary to phrases and eventually to sentences and even to conversational speech. ✔ Purchase Orders Accepted!
