This two day workshop will provide clinicians with more in-depth and practical information on assessment and treatment of preschooler and school age children using a motor based approach. Case studies and learning activities will be used to illustrate and apply assessment and treatment content. Participants are asked to bring a client case so they have the opportunity to immediately apply workshop material to a child on their caseload.

This workshop expands on the concepts introduced in our one day workshop:  Making a Difference: Best Treatment Practices for Preschool and School-Aged Children with Motor Speech Disorders. It is recommended that participants have previously attended this workshop.

Day 1 will focus on:

  • observation and analysis of motor speech movements
  • use of ITEMS (Informal Tool for Early Motor Speech)
  • goal and vocabulary selection based on assessment observations
  • multiple case studies to demonstrate and practice motor based analysis and goal setting

Day 2 will focus on:

  • cueing strategies
  • motor learning principles
  • parent participation
  • two comprehensive case studies to illustrate and demonstrate the treatment principles
  • participant’s case study to support application of material with a child on his/her caseload
