Upcoming Webinar – Cueing and Scripting Motor Speech Skills to Expressive Language in Childhood Apraxia of Speech

A CASANA Live Webinar….

Cueing and Scripting Motor Speech Skills to Expressive Language in Childhood Apraxia of Speech

 Happy-Children-2

Featured Speaker:  Apraxia expert Nancy Kaufman, M.A., CCC-SLP

(ASHA CEs are available for this webinar)

Children with apraxia of speech require cues to help them to remember the upcoming consonants, vowels, and syllables of practice words. They also often need help to combine words to formulate phrases and sentences by following scripts that they can retain and implement spontaneously. This webinar will overview how cues and scripts can assist children with CAS to become successful vocal communicators. Cueing and scripting techniques will be overviewed and presented via video examples.

About the Speaker:

Nancy R. Kaufman, MA, CCC-SLP is the owner and director of the Kaufman Children’s Center for Speech, Language, Sensory-Motor, and Social Connections, Inc. (KCC), located in West Bloomfield, Michigan. Since 1979, Nancy has dedicated herself to establishing the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP), a treatment approach to help children become effective vocal communicators. She 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 and language pathologist consultant for the Parish School and Carruth Center in Houston, Texas.

Nothing can be more intimidating and confusing as a bunch of numbers, symbols, and jargon attempting to explain a child’s capabilities on a diagnostic report. This session is designed to help participants understand how to discern much of the technical terms and measures typically used in speech language pathology and audiology. The session will also address the types of information that should to be included in the report to make it more helpful to future professionals the child may work with, as well as family members.

An Introduction to Ultrasound Biofeedback for Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Presented by Jonathan Preston, Ph.D., CCC-SLP,

(ASHA CEUs are available for this educational event)

biofeedback

Real-time ultrasound imaging of the tongue has recently been used as a biofeedback tool for treating persisting speech sound disorders, including childhood apraxia of speech.

With ultrasound, clients (and clinicians) can see their tongue position and shape and can be cued to modify tongue movements in real-time with this visual information. Although not every SLP will have access to this technology, clinicians should be informed of the advantages and disadvantages of this approach as well as the research supporting the efficacy of ultrasound biofeedback.

The seminar will provide an overview with video examples of how the technology can be used to assess tongue movements and remediate speech errors in school-age children with CAS.

Dealing with Dysarthria & Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Presented by Apraxia expert Ruth Stoeckel, Ph.D., CCC-SLP of the Mayo Clinic

(ASHA CEUs are available for this educational event)

In recent years, there has been increased awareness of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) as a pediatric motor speech disorder that affects planning and programming for speech production.  Motor impairment affecting the execution of speech movements (dysarthria) in children is more often associated with other disorders, such as cerebral palsy, has received less attention, yet, can seriously impact speech sound production.

For children with severe speech sound disorders, it may be challenging to SLPs to determine the relative contributions of linguistic versus motor impairment, and to differentiate problems of planning/programming from difficulty with execution of movements.  In addition to making an accurate diagnosis, treatment will need to be adjusted, depending on the degree to which different factors are involved. This session will discuss overlapping characteristics between apraxia and dysarthria, characteristics that differentiate the two disorders, and how therapy intervention can be adapted when both apraxia and dysarthria are present.

Upcoming Webinar – Demystifying the Principles of Motor Learning in Speech Therapy for Apraxia

A CASANA Live Webinar:

Demystifying Principles of Motor Learning in Speech Therapy for Apraxia

Presented by Apraxia expert Edwin Maas, Ph.D.

(ASHA CEUs are available for this educational event)

speechtherapist

Have you ever wondered what the term “principles of motor learning” really means and what it has to do with the way you conduct a treatment session? Research on motor learning has shown that certain conditions of practice and feedback improve the retention and transfer of a wide variety of motor skills.

This body of literature may hold relevance to speech motor learning, including in childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), because speech is also a motor skill.

This 90 minute webinar will review several of these principles of motor learning and will focus specifically on their potential to maximize learning in speech treatment for childhood apraxia of speech.

Learning Disabilities Affect Up to 10 Percent of Children, Study Finds
A new study by academics at UCL and Goldsmiths indicates that up to 10 percent of the population are affected by specific learning disabilities (SLDs), and that children are frequently affected by more than one learning disability such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and specific language impairment. As a part of the study, researchers summarized what is currently known about SLD’s neural and genetic basis to help clarify what is causing these disabilities to develop, helping to improve teaching for individual learners, and also training for school pyschologists, clinicians, and teachers.  Medical Express – Psychology & Psychiatry – April 18, 2013

2013 National Conference Speaker/Session Spotlight: Gillian Green, JD

2013 National Conference Speaker/ Session Spotlight

Thursday, July 11 – Saturday, July 13, 2013 at Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center

Gillian Green, JD, is an attorney and parent of a child with CAS. She graduated with honors from Stanford Law School in 2005, and worked for several years at a national law firm in the field of contracts, licensing, and negotiations.  In 2011, she started her own firm, also focusing on contracts and licensing, and works on a pro bono basis as a special education advocate for parents of children with disabilities. She lives and works in Colorado, and is the facilitator of the Colorado parents of children with apraxia group.

“I attended last year’s national conference in Boston and found it to be extremely educational as well as hopeful.  Being a parent of a child with CAS can feel quite lonely at times and the effort to help our kids can seem daunting.  But being at a conference with other parents and educators who want to help our kids as best they can is so affirming.  It makes you feel part of a team, and gives you that energy boost and the knowledge that you can make a difference for your child, and you can help them find their voices!”

GILLIAN GREEN’S NATIONAL CONFERENCE SESSION 306
A Walk through the IEP: An Overview of Special Education Law and CAS
Among the many challenges facing a parent of a child with CAS is how to best advocate for that child’s needs – especially when it comes to school supports and services. This presentation will outline the basics of federal special education law and protections, as well as some specifics regarding Colorado state laws.  We’ll then move to the basics of an IEP meeting, what parents can – and should – expect to result from the meeting, and what happens after the meeting.  We’ll discuss specific IEP goals and objectives relevant to CAS, as well as common misconceptions that prevent some parents from maximizing the impact they can have on the services their child receives.  There will be time at the end of the presentation for questions and answers.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will be able to discuss the basics of the IEP process and applicable law.
  • Participants will be able to recognize common misconceptions about the IEP process and parent involvement.
  • Participants will be able to identify strategies to become more effective advocates for their children with CAS.
“I think having the conference in Denver will be an amazing opportunity for parents, researchers, and educators to learn the current best practices for helping our kids with CAS and then bring those ideas out into our community.  For parents, I think it’s going to be a chance to connect with other parents, educate themselves, and really build an active, supportive community.  And for all of us, raising awareness of apraxia in the media and press is so important for our kids; having the conference here will really help us to educate our own family, friends, and neighbors about what CAS is, and how we can all encourage and support our kids.”
