Presenter: Ana Paula Mumy, SLPD, CCC-SLP
– S.G., prior course participant
Explaining to students how to change the way they move their tongue, lip and jaw muscles to improve speech intelligibility has always been challenging. This course uses a multi-sensory approach with video demonstrations to make it easier for students to understand, remember, self-monitor, and use evidence-based strategies for the remediation of r, s, z, l, f, v, th, sh, and ch sounds.
Included in this course are reproducible materials that address visual strategies, CVC word lists, sound bombardment sentences and minimal pair lists for quick screening, treatment and evaluation. Pressing topics that relate to school-based services are also discussed including adverse effects on educational performance, and response to intervention (RTI) efforts. The strategies are also written so that teachers and parents are able to reinforce therapy sessions.
Course is offered for 0.35 ASHA CEUs – 3.5 Contact Hours.
This course includes numerous downloadable reproducibles for use in your therapy sessions.
Run Time: 3:49:42 (Course = 1:50:20 and Videos = 1:59:22)
