A CASANA Live Webinar:
Creating IEP Goals for Children with Apraxia and Other Communication Needs
Presented by Apraxia expert Susan Caspari, MA, CCC-SLP
(ASHA CEUs are available for this educational event)
IEP goals are written in order to address a child’s individual needs. Most children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) will have needs in more than one communication area. A child with CAS, who clearly has speech production needs, may also struggle with social pragmatics, have difficulty with expressive language, have atypical variations in the melody of their speech, and may need to supplement their verbal speech attempts with an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system. What is the difference between these communication need areas, and does the child with CAS need a goal for each one?
This 90-minute webinar will focus on how goals can be written for different communication need areas. Resources will be provided describing methods for effective IEP goal writing. And cases will be reviewed demonstrating children with different communication profiles including examples of the goals written based on their specific need areas.
