Use this approach to shape and expand verbal communication while controlling for speech motor coordination difficulty throughout the treatment process. Ages 2-10 years. Made in the USA.

"I work in the schools and my biggest success was the parents giving me the best compliments as they couldn't believe the success with increased intelligibility....using these Kits! I can't thank you enough!" SLP

"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!'" – SLP

"I have been using the Kaufman program for maybe 17 or so years. It's worth every dollar I spent on training and materials." – SLP

"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!" – Parent

"The Kaufman kits are great. I also love the Kaufman Speech to Language book." – SLP

"I LOVE these materials! I use them all the time!!" Margaret S., SLP

"I use my Kaufman Kit every day." Karla S., SLP

"The best Apraxia resource – hands down!" Christine Z.M., SLP

"I use Kaufman cards weekly in my practice." Pamela L., SLP

"One of my fave therapy tools!" Rina K.S., SLP

"I use my Kaufman cards every day!" Katie E., SLP

"I use the Kaufman cards and language approach to open syllables. It breaks down words nicely." – SLP

"I definitely recommend the Kaufman Treatment Kits for preschoolers for sure." – SLP

"I have the Basic & Advanced Kits, and they are both great. I use the Basic one the most as I work with primarily the Pre-K population." – SLP

"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!"  SLP

"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!" SLP

"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!" Parent

Author

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.
