Course Title: Children Who Struggle To Speak: Evidence-Based Treatment Techniques for Children with Apraxia of Speech
Presented by apraxia expert Nancy Kaufman, this clinical seminar will focus on evaluation and treatment. Introduced will be the key concepts of phonemic simplification, successive word approximations and pivot syllables, and how treatment interventions derived from these concepts have proven highly effective in increasing speech intelligibility for children with apraxia of speech.
Functional and focused on interventions, actual treatment session video clips appear early and often throughout the lecture. The easy-to-incorporate techniques presented will provide clinicians with the necessary tools to help children with apraxia of speech begin progressing immediately from a simple core vocabulary toward phrases and eventually to sentences and even conversational speech. Offered for 0.6 ASHA CEUs (6 contact hours).
