Course Description

"Hi! How are you?" Such a simple phrase--but actually it takes a lot for us to say!

TalkTools instructor and apraxia expert, Renee Roy Hill, will be looking at the complex process of being able to freely and independently produce speech sounds on command and provide clear-cut reasoning and strategies for teaching clients to access airflow volitionally and then transition to speech. Case studies will be included. 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Participants will be able to define the physiological process for volitional control over phonation.
  2. Participants will be able to identify three disorders that can contribute to deficits in volitional control.
  3. Participants will be able to assess structural and neurological pathologies that can affect phonation.
  4.  Participants will be able to integrate treatment methods to facilitate and advance speech production.
