AAC Strategies for Apraxia

Course Abstract:

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 whole speech and language intervention program!

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