The TalkTools Apraxia Kit has been revised! Renee Roy Hill MS,CCC-SLP, developer of the Apraxia Kit, has been working on revisions and new material that will be included in this updated program. She will guide the participant (familiar or unfamiliar with this program) through its intended use with clients from as young as 1 year as well as clients who are having difficulty developing speech imitation skills to include clients with apraxia, dysarthria, autism, clients not yet developing speech or clients having difficulty shaping speech to new sounds and syllables. Learn how to use a specific tool for placement, to facilitate speech imitation and shaping speech sounds, transition to a hand cue and then using only a visual/verbal cue. Next the participant will learn strategies for teaching syllables. New materials are now included to help the participant implement this program at home and will be reviewed. You will not want to miss this short course!
