School-based Training

School-based speech pathologists evaluate, diagnose, and treat a diverse variety of disorders in the schools.  Childhood apraxia of speech is one of those disorders which is frequently not adequately addressed in graduate programs.  These sessions will offer ongoing training in a variety of ages to help school-based therapists recognize and treat children with apraxia of speech. CEUs are available by completing demographic information and passing the quiz with 80% accuracy.

CAS Goals for Older Students

Presented by: Kay Giesecke, MS, CCC-SLP

There is very little information published on how to help older students whose speech still doesn’t sound like that of a typical speaker. In this course, attendees will learn how to help the older student with lingering articulation and language issues by increasing verbal output, producing complex words and sentences, improving coarticulation, and using gestures and intonation that increase overall intelligibility.
