Target Audience

For SLPs working with young children, ages 2 - 10, on consonant-vowel combinations and on building receptive and expressive language skills. This material may also be beneficial as home programs for parents who are working closely with their child's SLP to reinforce therapy sessions.


Since 1979, Nancy Kaufman, MA, CCC-SLP, has dedicated herself to establishing the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP), a treatment approach to help children become effective vocal communicators. The K-SLP has evolved over the years to include the most current research in childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), motor learning, and applied behavior analysis (ABA), and its methods and materials are used by speech-language pathologists worldwide. In addition, many ABA specialists have adopted the K-SLP for children with autism spectrum disorders.

Nancy lectures locally, nationally, and internationally on the subject of CAS and other speech sound disorders in children. Families from around the country and the world travel to the Kaufman Children's Center for Speech, Language, Sensory-Motor, and Autism Treatment, Inc (KCC) in West Bloomfield, Michigan to participate in intensive, specialized therapy programs. The KCC continues to grow, offering renowned speech, language, occupational therapy, sensory integration, and applied behavior analysis (ABA) center and home-based autism programs.

Nancy served as a member of the Professional Advisory Council for Apraxia Kids for 10 years. Currently, she serves on the board of visitors of Wayne State University's Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute for Child and Family Development and is the speech-language pathologist consultant for the Parish School and Carruth Center in Houston, Texas, and Suburban Speech Center in Short Hills, New Jersey.

Nancy has been honored by both of her alma maters: she received the Distinguished Alumni Award from Wayne State University in 2015 and the Outstanding Alumni Award from Michigan State University in 2010. She was awarded the Michigan Speech-Language-Hearing Association (MSHA) Distinguished Service Award in 2011 and the West Bloomfield Township Chamber of Commerce Community Excellence Business Person of the Year Award in 2015. She was also recognized by the Lawrence Technological University Leaders & Innovators program. The KCC has received MSHA's Clinical Service Award and Corp! Magazine's Best of Michigan Business Award. Nancy has three grown children and resides with her husband in West Bloomfield, Michigan.

Kaufman What's In Your Doghouse?

"I was lucky enough to win this game from one of your Facebook Giveaway posts & it is a hit with my kids. They ask me frequently to play the "doggie game." Great language opportunities. Thank you!"  S. Friedman, SLP (Oct. 2017)

"This is the most fun and engaging matching game I’ve ever seen. I was impressed by the many examples and scripts provided in the instruction manual to make the process of focusing on any of these goals extremely easy. It’s effective. It’s versatile. It’s motivating. It appeals to a wide age-range and goal bank…What’s In Your Doghouse? gets an A in my (SLP) book!"Claudia D., SLP of Creative Speech Lab (Aug. 2017)

Kaufman Mutt Family Total Language Builder

"My favorite apraxia program is Kaufman and that it has the Mutt Family Workbook & Puzzle for further practice."  Vanessa A.S., SLP (Aug. 2017)

"Kaufman is my staple. Having a variety of programs and skills in which to pull provides the best results for my students. The Kaufman has a range of material besides the cards that can keep the child interested. I use the Work Out book and recently acquired the Mutt Family Puzzle. My students never lose interest, especially if I mix it up with mini breaks or rotate. Still the same target, but in a variety of structured activities." – Laura L., SLP (Apr. 2016)

"This resource is also a great tool to work on receptive language, following directions, auditory recognition, comprehension, retention and integration skills." — SLP
