A Functional Motor Programming Approach for Children with Developmental Verbal Apraxia
By Kathleen E. Dauer, Sandra S. Irwin, and Sandra R.
Increase your children’s speech and
articulation abilities. Using this manual, you can help children who are
nonverbal or highly unintelligible due to developmental verbal apraxia
and other articulation, phonological, or motor speech disorders.
Therapy practice is structured so
that syllable structures gradually increase in length and complexity. Emphasis
is placed on teaching functional spoken language through imitation and
reinforced with signs and pictures illustrated in the manual. The authors use a
Functional Motor Programming Approach to therapy because it is undertaken
in a naturalistic and practical environment.
With this resource, you’ll receive:
- 280 pages of reproducible
picture stimuli organized by syllable structure, target sound, and type of
- Hierarchical therapy
structure outlined in a Therapy Progression Chart
- Informative handouts to copy
and give to parents
