Motivating Children with Exciting Apps
Presented By: Erik X. Raj, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

This hands-on course is designed to meet the needs of school-age children and adolescents with various communication difficulties by introducing them to photo-based iPad apps.

AAC Strategies for Apraxia
Presented By:  Marleah Herman-Umpleby, M.S., CCC-SLP and Stephanie Ekis, M.S., CCC-SLP

This session will provide 10 easy to implement suggestions for using AAC technology, and supports to encourage language and literacy growth in individuals with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS). The importance of social and meaningful interactions (and not just requests!), literacy development, curriculum supports and resources will all be discussed. Information and valuable tools about being a great communication partner will also be shared to help families and teams provide optimal circumstances for growth, literacy and engagement. AAC does not have to be presented *instead* of use of natural speech for individuals with CAS. Watch this session to learn more about the benefits of using it as a part of a speech and language intervention program!

Home Strategies for Carryover and Generalization for CAS
Presented By: Elaine Dolgin-Lieberman, M.A., CCC-SLP

Parent involvement is critical to achieving successful outcomes in children with childhood apraxia of speech. Research conducted by Edal and Gildersleeve-Neumann (2011) found that the more production targets are practiced, the faster a child can acquire the targets and better the chance for generalization. This presentation will focus on ways speech-language pathologists can include parents, families, and caregivers in the therapy process to increase home practice. This can enhance the child’s rate of progress, generalization, and self-esteem that results from their feeling of success and improved speech clarity.

Supporting the Circle: Families, Friends, and Functional Outcomes
Presented by:  Heather Rusiewicz, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

https://www.apraxia-kids.org/webinar_library/supporting-the-circle-families-friends-and-functional-outcomes/

The management of childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) often intensely focuses on speech production objectives. While addressing speech sound skills is essential during intervention, it is also important to expand the therapeutic focus beyond the phoneme and even beyond the client. Consideration of the experiences of children with CAS and their families will help lead to more functional outcomes in day-to-day interactions. This presentation will review literature on the impact of CAS and the family unit according to the experiences and perceptions of parents. Ways in which to incorporate the larger family and social circles in patient- and family -centered care practices will be discussed.
