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)
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.
