Apraxia Kids: What are the top 3 things you learned from this training experience?
Rebecca: From Boot Camp, I learned about the research evidence for CAS. I gained confidence in my ability to differentiate CAS from other speech sound disorders. I am more familiar with interventions for Apraxia that are supported by evidence. Additionally, I developed a much more comprehensive understanding of the Principles of Motor Learning and how and why to include PML in therapy for CAS.

 

Apraxia Kids: How did the boot camp experience change or expand your network of colleagues/friends?
Rebecca: I was so impressed by the support that is provided by Boot Camp! The mentors, the Facebook groups, and the participants. It was so enjoyable to learn with like-minded professionals who are as passionate about Apraxia and keen to learn. It is such an honour to be a Boot Camp graduate and know that I can reach out in so many ways with questions and/or for support.

 

Apraxia Kids: How have you implemented the knowledge you gained at boot camp?
Rebecca: I am using assessment tools and treatment approaches that are evidence-based for Apraxia, as well as including the principles of motor learning.

 

Apraxia Kids: What is an example of how you have been able to (or plan to) use your expertise as a local resource/support for other professionals and/or families since attending the intensive training?
Rebecca: I was immediately able to apply the knowledge that I learned at Boot Camp with clients and families. With colleagues, I have shared resources that I learned about. I look forward to continuing to share the knowledge that I gained with colleagues and families.

 

Apraxia Kids: What would you say to someone considering applying to boot camp next round?
Rebecca: GO FOR IT! Boot Camp is an amazing experience and well worth the time and effort! The intensive learning experience at Boot Camp was exactly what I was looking for to develop my knowledge and skill set regarding Apraxia. The instructors were incredible and I participated with wonderful like-minded colleagues who were also keen to learn about Apraxia. Even though the 2021 Boot Camp was virtual, I found it extremely valuable and really enjoyed the experience.
