Speech-Language Pathology Continuing Education
and Treatment Resources
Kaufman Kit 1 teaches children to combine consonants and vowels to form words while controlling for oral-motor difficulty. The 225 visual referent cards were selected specifically to target and teach the syllable shapes children need to master to become effective vocal/verbal communicators. Treatment methods employ a systematic and progressive approach of simplifying word pronunciation patterns to shape and expand verbal expression and make communication easier for children with childhood apraxia of speech and other speech sound disorders.
This highly effective approach builds intelligibility through a hierarchy of successive "word shell" approximations based on least physiological effort of target words. The clinician also is able to introduce more complex phoneme patterns as the child's ability improves, thus maintaining the child's ability to speak at his or her maximum level.
Included 52-page manual explains the Kaufman approach and how these methods can help children progress quickly from a simple core vocabulary toward becoming effective, functional, intelligible communicators. Also see Kaufman Kit 2 for sequencing words with /k, g, f, s, sh/ and blends /s, r, l/.
Quickly builds motor-speech coordination and allows children with apraxia to begin processing immediately from a simple core vocabulary toward becoming effective vocal/verbal communicators.
How much time is required?
About 15 minutes to complete a lesson.
Each card breaks down the target word into a series of successive word approximations based on least physiological effort. These "word shells" provide a verbal avenue by which children communicate at their own skill level with success!
From the Author:
"Clinicians will appreciate that more complex phoneme patterns are introduced as the child's ability improves, thus maintaining the child's ability to speak at his or her maximum level." - Nancy Kaufman, MA, CCC-SLP
Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol Treatment Progression:
The Kaufman Speech To Language Protocol is a systematic and progressive treatment program utilizing word simplification patterns to shape and expand verbal communication while controlling for oral-motor difficulty throughout the treatment process.
Children who are having difficulty with the production, synthesis, and/or sequencing of words with /p, b, m, t, d, n, h/. (Visual referents most appropriate for children ages 2-6.)
"I work in the schools and my biggest success was the parents giving me the best compliments as they couldn't believe the success received with increased intelligibility...using these Kits! I can't thank you enough!"
- Speech-Language Pathologist
"My son is still on Kit 1, but he has made HUGE gains with the K-SLP methods. We purchased Kit 1 and Kit 2 for home use. He has gone from 35% accuracy to 100% on VCV (vowel-consonant-vowel) in a very short time!"
"I work with children with Autism and they enjoy working with Kit 1. I have seen huge improvements in overall communication and intelligibility...just seeing their ability to communicate more effectively has been wonderful!"
"My son is still using Kit 1 with his SLP, and we also have a set at home to practice with. It has been such a great tool for him! He started therapy off at 2 & 1/2 years old and was essentially nonverbal. Now, he's three and has been making slow, but steady progress! He loves the cards!"
"I have Kits 1 & 2 along with the Workout Book. I had a little guy who was starting with Kit 1 in August and we are into Kit 2 now. He loves the cards and the "puppy book", especially Moppy! He loves making up his own phrases with the cards. One of his sisters saw me at the store and she came up and hugged me and said 'Thank you for teaching my brother to talk! We can understand him now!'"
"I love Kit 1 - and have used it several times over the years with toddlers and preschoolers. I find it gives them so much success and confidence - and the parents just love it! It really 'unlocks' something that leads to a growth in vocabulary and communication skills!"
