Incorporating Phonological Awareness Into Intervention for Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) (WEB19011)

Presenter(s): Amy Skinder-Meredith, PhD, CCC-SLP
Course Description

Young children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) are at risk for difficulties in phonological awareness, which impedes their early reading skills. Incorporating phonological awareness into speech treatment for children with CAS can improve their motor speech as well as early literacy skills. This session discusses the use of dynamic tactile temporal cueing (DTTC) to achieve the correct sequencing of articulatory gestures and explore how to incorporate phonics and phonological awareness instruction for pre-practice and correction of speech sound errors. This holistic approach allows the child to achieve better speech intelligibility while receiving explicit instruction to support a foundation for early reading skills.

This course is a recorded session from the 2019/2020 online conference “Innovative Methods for Preschool Assessment, Collaboration, and Treatment.”

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • implement DTTC in intervention
  • incorporate print into stimuli for target phrases
  • utilize phonics for explicit corrective feedback for speech sound errors
