Course Description

We know that emotional development is a key foundation in language development, but what has been unchartered territory is the integration of social-emotional development within the therapy process for a child with Dyspraxia. 

In this 1.5 hour webinar we will guide you through the developmental stages of social- emotional development as they support the process of therapy with the person who has dyspraxia. Each stage will offer not only the WHAT IS HAPPENING in the stage, but specific activities connected to the process for that period in therapy. Building through the therapy stages we will provide social-emotional embedded process connected to ideas on how to build speech, language and social communication for the child with dyspraxia from early childhood- young adult.
