HELLO! WE ARE SUPER EXCITED TO INTRODUCE THIS FUN & INTERACTIVE ACTIVITY PACKET FOR TREATING VERBAL APRAXIA OF SPEECH TO EVERYONE!! Best yet- it was revised on 12/14/2015. Please re-download for some great new page edits and additions when you have time.
Apraxia is a neurological speech disorder in which a person has trouble saying what he or she wants to say correctly and consistently. Characteristics of verbal apraxia include:
•Speech disintegrates at the consonant vowel on up to the multi-syllable word level.
•Single words can have sounds that are deleted are distorted.
•Single words can be deleted, reversed, or repeated.
•Motor speech patterns can be difficult to repeat.
•Student may exhibit groping during verbal attempts.
•Student may replace a “favored sound” for words in place of other sounds and words.
We have chosen to first introduce the shorter (easier) vc & cv words to say and then progress to the longer (harder) words to say in the cvc and cvcv forms in this packet. This progression will give the apraxic child who is exhibiting characteristics similar to the ones listed above initial success and a strong therapy program thereafter to aid in their progression as they improve in their verbal skills.
Your purchase will not be blind, as we have included the content pages, directions, and several example pages in the preview. We welcome your download of the preview before making your purchase.
We hope you thoroughly enjoy this comprehensive treatment packet for treating verbal apraxia. It is truly a celebration of the CV, VC, CVC, & CVCV words!
We sincerely hope that this document exceeds your expectations and we welcome any and all comments and feedback here at TPT or sent via email. We can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
