by Nancy Kaufman, MA, CCC-SLP

0.4 CEUs

$ 79.00

Join Nancy Kaufman for this comprehensive, 4-hour training program as she teaches viewers step-by-step and in specific detail how to employ training materials while implementing her approach for evaluating and treating children with apraxia of speech. The rationale for using specific stimuli at specific times during the evaluation and treatment process will be discussed, and methods for incorporating these stimuli during evaluation and treatment will be demonstrated.

Watch over 40 video examples of children of different ages and abilities interact with Nancy as she implements the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP) and explains the process of combining consonants and vowels into words and words into functional expressive language.  Strategies discussed in this program include word simplification, scripting, cuing and other evidence-based methods.  Offered for 0.4 SLP CEUs – 4 contact hours. 

Content Disclosure: This presentation will focus exclusively on the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol. Other treatment approaches will receive limited or no coverage as part of this training. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking the Presenter & Disclosures tab.
Course Format: Video presentation with author narration.  

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand and implement a specific evaluation method to include elements of the Kaufman Speech Praxis Test for Children in order to identify error patterns and to establish syllable shape goals.
  2. Understand and implement a specific treatment method — the Kaufman Speech to Language
    Protocol (K-SLP) —
    to help children to become effective vocal/verbal communicators.
  3. Understand and implement strategies of employing phonological processes to simplify words, thereby establishing successive approximations as a temporary, functional means of communication.
  4. Understand and implement cues, fade cues, script functional language and utilize powerful reinforcers for carryover skills.
  5. Understand and implement home programs to increase practice for carryover skills.

Content Disclosure: This presentation will focus exclusively on the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol. Other treatment approaches will receive limited or no coverage as part of this training.

"Working on approximations first was the most beneficial discussion." - C.H., 9/28/2016

"I like that the course provided a hierarchy and practical steps for creation of word shells as well as detailed examples of cues for individual vowel and consonant production." - C.M., 9/26/2016

"It was extremely functional and applicable to the population I work with and provided a great variety of specific techniques and examples of how to implement and promote speech production." - C.I., 9/11/2016

"I found the information on how to select appropriate targets to use in treatment and for carryover into the home program very useful.  However, I expected discussion on when to move from one stage to the next; when a specific goal can be considered 'mastered.' " - E.P., 9/10/2016

"The entire presentation was helpful to my practice, from introductory material to practical, treatment-oriented suggestions and methods. It was full of videos which fostered engagement and had a strong theoretical practical backbone." - G.R., 8/30/2016

"I appreciate the real life therapy situations with a variety of children in different ages, diagnoses and levels." - M.I., 8/21/2016

"I found the examples and explanations of cuing techniques a helpful refresher. I use those techniques all the time, but it was nice to have a specific label for them. I also like the examples of incorporating the KSLP in group settings and using various play items." - C.R., 8/20/2016

"The videos were great models for each aspect of the program. I also enjoyed the structured presentation with clear information presented on slides to allow for easy note taking." - S.B., 8/16/2016

"The discussion of the cueing techniques as well as watching the videos where Mrs. Kaufman assisted parents in the home program were most beneficial." - V.W., 7/11/2016

"It was very practical - I can take the information used and directly begin to implement it in my practice immediately. I like how it was set up to walk through the whole protocol beginning with simple syllable shapes through full sentences with grammar." - L.C., 7/1/2016

"I liked the I could do the course on my own time and in chunks. I also LOVED all the video examples." - K.M., 6/29/2016

"All of it was helpful. The videos gave clear and precise strategies to use in therapy. I am a visual learner and Nancy allowing me to observe her was the most beneficial." - C.D., 6/4/2016

"The link to simplifying approximations to phonological processes - I recognized accepting approximations already, but this provides a more systematic approach." - M.R., 3/13/2016

"I liked the client examples, it made it easier to understand the methods by seeing them in action." - C.W., 2/20/2016
