Pam’s second material on childhood apraxia presents a deep perspective on speech sound development. This material is presented as a book and as a 3.5-hour audio seminar over three CDs.
This course is available for ASHA CEUs and/or Continuing Education Hours and is also available for group CEUs (see below).
“I consider this book a “must have” for my library. I refer to it again and again as a resource to determine next steps for interventions with children on my caseload. ”
Book & Seminar Details
Using a month-by-month developmental framework, Pam describes how to nurture sound development in children who have great difficulty learning to make sounds and speech. Pam Marshalla integrates information from articulation, phonology, oral-motor, and infant vocal development into a comprehensive plan of treatment. Apraxia Uncovered will help you understand how to help the child make a wider variety of consonants, vowels, syllables and words, and to become more intelligible. Techniques are appropriate for children of all ages.
- Hundreds of therapy suggestions
- Reference book that fully summarizes lecture material
- Based on thirty years of Pam’s clinical experience
- Pam’s famous practical style
“I found Apraxia Uncovered to be extremely powerful in my understanding of apraxia and how to better treat my young students experiencing speech motor planning issues! Thank you!”
The Seven Stages of Phoneme Development
- Preparing – getting the voice ready for speech
- Speechifying – making utterances sound speech-like
- Honing – zeroing-in on non-vocalic consonants differentiated by place
- Oscillating – incorporating reciprocating oral movements
- Solidifying – establishing basic syllable constructions
- Advancing – leaping beyond simple syllable constructions
- Finishing – adding clusters and stridency at all levels of speech
A Note To Parents
Pam has written this book and recorded this seminar in such a way that you will be able to follow the content. However, before you dig into this rather detailed material, Pam recommends that you read her earlier book, Becoming Verbal With Childhood Apraxia.
Apraxia Uncovered is:
- Book, softcover, 160 pages
- Also available: 3 CDs (3.5-hour audio seminar)
- Also available: optional 0.35 ASHA CEUs (see details below)
- Appropriate for SLPs and some parents
- For children of all ages
“I have found this book so helpful for my understanding of speech development. Marshalla really explains phonological development and how our understanding of the natural progression can help us with so many clients when we overlay the process (stretched out or compressed) over our clients’ progress. Love this book.”
Common Question About This Material
Can you tell me how your books “Becoming Verbal With Childhood Apraxia” and “Apraxia Uncovered, The Seven Stages of Phoneme Development” are different? Which one should I read first?
- Think of Becoming Verbal With Childhood Apraxia as Part 1. It is about how to get kids more vocal, verbal, communicative, imitative and interactive, and how to get them to play with the sounds they make. Read it first.
- Think of Apraxia Uncovered, The Seven Stages of Phoneme Development as Part 2. It is about how sound develops over time – from the vocalizations of the infant to the sophisticated consonant and vowel sequences of the three-year-old. Read it or listen to the recorded seminar second.
At the completion of this 3.5-hour course, participants should be able to:
- Name the seven stages of vocal development
- Describe the important characteristics of each stage
- Discuss how the stages of vocal development apply to children with apraxia and dysarthria
- List a variety of methods and procedures that can be used to facilitate vocal development in children with severe expressive speech delay/disorder
