Treatment Program for Childhood Apraxia of Speech

Apply the principles of motor planning to the treatment of childhood apraxia of speech with this program, complete with detailed instructions, 2000 stimulus pictures, and tactile-kinesthetic cue cards.

The 65-page manual shows you how to establish motor learning for different syllable shapes and pattern sequences. Incorporate research-based principles into therapy organization and goal selection and:

  • select target sounds and words to build intelligibility and promote easier acquisition
  • set up a practice schedule to maximize motor learning
  • use blocked practice to establish new motor sequences
  • use random practice to facilitate generalization of learned motor sequences
  • adjust the type and frequency of cues/modeling
  • adjust the type and frequency of performance feedback
  • incorporate prosody training early in the treatment program
  • use tactile/kinesthetic cue cards to support the establishment of movement sequences for speech

The stimulus cards are customized to apraxia therapy with:

  • 325 picture cards (three pictures per side for 1950 pictures)
  • 30 picture cards for multisyllabic words (one picture per side for 60 total pictures)
  • 12 tactile-kinesthetic cue cards

The tactile-kinesthetic cue cards develop sound blending and syllable transitions. Students produce a variety of phoneme sequences while moving one finger along a visual representation of the movement sequence. These cards are coated, so you can write target sound sequences on them with a dry-erase marker. The cue cards represent the following hierarchy of syllable structure:

  1. CV words
  2. VC words
  3. CVC words
  4. Initial strident/continuant
  5. Final strident/continuant
  6. Medial consonants
  7. Backward chaining: /s/ blends
  8. Backward chaining: /l/, /r/ blends
  9. Three-syllable words
  10. Four-syllable words
  11. Repetitions: caterpillar
  12. Repetitions: dinosaur

Students progress and:

  • establish a wide variety of phonetic movements/motor plans
  • stabilize sounds that are produced inconsistently
  • establish a core, meaningful vocabulary
  • speak with smoother syllable transitions

COMPLETE KIT INCLUDES: 65-page manual; 325, 7½" x 2½" double-sided, coated picture/stimuli cards; 12, 4" x 6" cue cards; 30, 4" x 6" double-sided, coated picture/stimuli cards; and data sheet all in a sturdy storage box. (©2010)
