CHILDREN WHO STRUGGLE TO SPEAK:
EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT TECHNIQUES FOR
CHILDREN WITH APRAXIA OF SPEECH
Each year, Nancy travels the United States (and sometimes beyond!) sharing her K-SLP methods with fellow speech-language pathologists. Her full-day workshops are sponsored by Northern Speech Services, headquartered here in Michigan.
Focused on evaluation and treatment, Nancy’s seminars provide strategies 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. Introduced are 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 and other speech sound disorders.
Functional and focused on interventions, actual treatment session video clips appear early and often throughout the lecture. The easy-to-incorporate methods, strategies and 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.
