A CASANA Live Webinar….
Cueing and Scripting Motor Speech Skills to Expressive Language in Childhood Apraxia of Speech
Featured Speaker: Apraxia expert Nancy Kaufman, M.A., CCC-SLP
(ASHA CEs are available for this webinar)
Children with apraxia of speech require cues to help them to remember the upcoming consonants, vowels, and syllables of practice words. They also often need help to combine words to formulate phrases and sentences by following scripts that they can retain and implement spontaneously. This webinar will overview how cues and scripts can assist children with CAS to become successful vocal communicators. Cueing and scripting techniques will be overviewed and presented via video examples.
