Apply for Boot Camp

Applications for the Apraxia Boot Camp are now open!

Apraxia Boot Camp is an intensive four-day advanced training program designed to strategically identify and intensively train qualified speech-language pathologists. The program aims to boost clinical expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). This training opportunity also includes a six-month mentorship following the training where participants can receive feedback on their case study.

The ideal candidate is an SLP with five years of experience, who have seen a fair share of children with apraxia of speech and feel reasonably successful with clients from this population. Apraxia Boot Camp graduates are committed to maintaining an ongoing relationship with Apraxia Kids and making a difference in their communities. You can find a full list of candidate requirements on the Apraxia Boot Camp application.

“I developed relationships with other top speech-language pathologists in the country. Knowing these clinicians allows me to be part of a network that continues to support my growth and knowledge in childhood apraxia of speech.” – Andreane Gaulin, M.Sc., CCC-SLP, BCBA

“I grew as a clinician and in communicating and collaborating with other boot camp attendees and instructors. Our online Facebook group serves as a resource for us to problem-solve various cases. We use each other as a sounding board when assessing and treating children with childhood apraxia of speech. I truly valued the relationships I built during my time at training and afterward throughout the last year.” –  Anne Hodits, M.A. CCC-SLP/L

“Throughout this experience, I really improved my overall knowledge of CAS, and I had the chance to explore different approaches for treating motor speech disorders. But, most of all, I expanded my toolbox for differential diagnosis and refined my assessment skills. The Bootcamp allowed me to connect with many knowledgeable speech pathologists, share different experiences, and develop new friendships.” – Isabelle Démosthènes, M.P.O.

“Since the Apraxia Boot Camp, I have been invited to speak on the topic of childhood apraxia of speech around the country. I continue to participate in our local Walk for Apraxia, and I am also an admin to the Apraxia Kids Kansas City official support group on Facebook. I am dedicated to my work educating families and treating children with CAS.” – Jennie Bjorem, M.A., CCC-SLP
