Congratulations Liz Prada-Petraitis, MS, CCC-SLP!

Congratulations to Liz Prada-Petraitis, MS, CCC-SLP, for graduating from the Apraxia Kids Intensive Training Institute (Apraxia Boot Camp)!

Liz Prada-Petraitis has been a speech therapist for over ten years. She has worked with children for the duration of my career. Her first three years as a therapist were spent working with pre-teens and young adults with autism in a school setting. Liz has been with the clinic for over seven years. Her caseload consists of children aged birth-21 years. Areas of special interest and expertise include apraxia, cleft lip/palate, and VPI.

 

Apraxia Kids: If you were to state the #1 thing you learned from this training experience, what would that be?

Liz: It’s hard to pick just one thing, as we learned so much!! I would say that boot camp primarily helped me fine tune the evaluation process and diagnosis requirements for CAS.

Apraxia Kids: Tell us about any relationships that you formed through the training experience.

Liz: It was a pleasure meeting everyone at boot camp! I was in contact with my small break out group for several months following the training, as we continued to work on the REPS project.  I have not had much contact with anyone since then. I joined the Facebook group, etc but it is difficult as I rarely use social media.

Apraxia Kids: Have you served as a local resource/information source for other professionals and families since attending the intensive training?

Liz: Yes. I am currently completing specialized CAS evaluations at Cleveland Clinic Children’s.  When other therapists have a child they suspect has CAS or motor speech difficulty, they refer to me and I complete the evaluation, determine diagnosis, and make treatment recommendations, etc for the therapist to carry out.

Apraxia Kids: What would you say to someone considering applying to boot camp next year?

Liz: Do it!! If you have a high interest in apraxia and want to know more, it is so very worth it.
