Session 44

Level of Instruction: Intermediate   –   Coronado II

The motor speech disorder of apraxia has been difficult to remediate in both adults and children. Beyond developing her own therapeutic approach to apraxia(published in 1976), the presenter has spent almost forty years identifying the common elements in successful treatments for apraxia. In this seminar, those elements will be listed, defined and described. They will then be applied to popular treatments and participants will be invited to share treatments they are currently using or planning to use, for examination of the presence of these elements.

Learner Outcomes:  At the completion of this presentation, participants will be able to demonstrate the “feel” of apraxia by repeating exercises performed in seminar, list and describe up to ten common elements in successful approaches to apraxia apply the list of elements to at least one common therapeutic approach and assess that approach’s potential for success with their client.
