Apraxia kurssi järjestetään syksyllä 2022 , mikäli kiinnostusta on riittävästi - OTA YHTEYS

A Sensory Motor Approach to Apraxia of Speech

Opettaja: Renee Roy Hill, MS, CCC-SLP, COM®️


This presentation focuses on treatment of clients diagnosed with apraxia of speech and related motor speech disorders. Many of these clients do not respond to the traditional auditory and visually-based motor speech techniques. Often because other co-existing issues are not addressed including oral sensory deficits, feeding deficits, and oral placement deficits, making differential diagnosis an important assessment component.

This course demonstrates how activities which utilize a tactile approach (OPT), in conjunction with auditory and visually-based apraxia therapy techniques, can improve speech clarity in clients diagnosed with apraxia of speech.

Additionally; childhood apraxia of speech is defined (along with other motor impairments), treatment goals including a muscle-based approach, sensory, OPT, and feeding are discussed, and strategies for implementing a multi-modality motor speech program are provided.


Upon completion, participants will be able to:  
  • Define childhood apraxia of speech along with subsequent motor speech impairments that may also be present.
  • Identify when a muscle-based approach is appropriate in a treatment plan.
  • Describe how oral placement activities through structured repetition improve muscle skill and teach muscle memory.
  • Explain how using a multi-sensory tactile approach is used with clients to transition from OPT to facilitate speech production.
  • Identify strategies for planning and implementing a multi-modality motor speech program.
