Day 1: This program will describe treatment of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) using evidence-based methods, particularly Dynamic Tactile and Temporal Cueing (DTTC). DTTC has been described as a motor-based treatment approach developed by Dr. Strand to treat children with moderate to severe CAS. This workshop will emphasize clinical thinking and decision-making as central to the processes of selecting and implementing any treatment approach for CAS. Rationale and procedures for treating children of different ages and severity levels using different treatment approaches will be described. Video demonstration of treatment techniques will help clinicians understand and apply methods in the clinical setting. Discussion will also emphasize the important role families play in treatment of CAS, including tools to help families understand and manage the disorder. SLP’s, Parents of children with CAS, and graduate clinicians are encouraged to attend. Meet and greet reception with Dr. Strand to follow the workshop.
