Apraxia Treatment Packet For Increased Verbal Accuracy of Concepts & Personal Information.

What is Developmental Apraxia/ Childhood Apraxia of Speech?
Apraxia is a neurological speech disorder in which a person has trouble saying what he or she wants to say correctly and consistently. It is not due to weakness or paralysis of the speech muscles (the muscles of the face, tongue, and lips), it is contributed to the brain that has problems planning to move the body parts like the lips, jaw, and tongue that are needed for speech production. It is also known as apraxia or apraxia of speech. It is important to note that the child KNOWS what he or she wants to say, but his/her brain has DIFFICULTY COORDINATING the muscle movements necessary to say words. They can have problems saying sounds, syllables, and words.

This treatment packet is targeted at helping the primary level student progress in their ability to clearly and slowly verbally produce words and sentences. We have included a variety of concepts to make the treatment program functional and age appropriate for children at the kindergarten and higher level. The students will be encouraged to read and learn the speech production cueing techniques and to use a pacing board during their repetitions. Repetition is the cornerstone of apraxia therapy. Repeating helps the brain to make new motor pathways of understanding.

Exercises in this packet range from the encouragement of the verbal production of single letters, numbers, and colors, to the clear and accurate production of the months, days of the week, multi-syllable words, and 3 to 6 word sentences. A variety of writing, sorting, and reading tasks are also provided to help with increasing the understanding of the concepts. We believe that understanding increases when all modalities of learning are used.
