Book Details

Based on the original writings of Jean Piaget and Pam Marshalla’s three decades of clinical work with children, this resource contains profound yet practical tools for helping children learn to talk.

Teach your child to speak up, speak out, play with sounds and words, engage in dialogue, turn-take, imitate, and become much more expressive. If you are looking for a place to begin reading about how to help young children with a severe expressive speech delay or disorder, this is it.

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.

    As a parent of an apraxic child, I want to thank you for your work with children who have apraxia! It is clearly a passion and mission of yours. I read Becoming Verbal With Childhood Apraxia and I found this book most helpful when my son was initially diagnosed with apraxia, as I was trying to make sense of this disorder.

    I am the mother of a child with special needs who was diagnosed with childhood apraxia. I wanted to understand apraxia in order to help my son. This was the first book I read on the subject and it provided many answers to my long list of questions.

    AMAZING book on Childhood Apraxia of Speech!!!! This book… wow! It rang so true to me reading this. It’s amazing how the author takes apart step-by-step how a child learns how to talk and then relates that to how a child with Childhood Apraxia of Speech will learn. I was able to literally check off “yep my daughter is doing that… yep… yep… oh, that is where my daughter is lacking.” It gave me understanding of what I have been doing right (without even knowing it!! Encouraging noises and sounds of all kinds for instance) and also of things I could work on. It’s been very helpful in working with my daughter. For instance Marshalla talks about saying the exact word that your child with CAS says. Sometimes the child doesn’t even know they are saying it that way. It’s been very helpful for my daughter to hear me mirror her. It’s a tool to help her self-correct – for instance my daughter was saying “meme” for mommy. I then told her “you are calling me meme instead of mama.” She was able to correct herself! It was amazing!!

    I am a registered nurse. I love logic and science. This book has both of them. The author has had so much experience with CAS and then brings it back to the basics of how someone learns how to talk. It was fascinating and so helpful and educational. I highly recommend this book!!!!!!

    This book changed my entire approach to working with children who have any issues with imitating, motor planning, or following directions. I created a discussion group and have bought myself three copies to share with teachers and parents. After 25 years of treating kids on the spectrum I now see that there have been some misguided assumptions, and even erroneous diagnoses.

  11. 5 out of 5

    This book provides a great resource and refreshing perspective regarding childhood apraxia. Instead of viewing this condition as a permanent problem, this book evaluates the differences in learning rates of apraxic children in regards to mimicking and motor planning. It gives excellent suggestions on increasing vocabulary and response in apraxic children and hope for parents who have children with this condition. Using some of these suggestions has greatly helped me and my apraxic son!
