Advancing Treatment in Speech Sound Disorders
I'm looking forward to an upcoming podcast interview with "Conversations in Speech Pathology" in April 2020 to discuss my forthcoming digital book Evaluation and Treatment of Speech Sound Disorders: A Comprehensive Approach with Thieme Publishers.
This book revolutionizes how we treat children with speech sound disorders to achieve impressive gains in communication skills by selecting challenging treatment targets to change the brain. In this book, learning is an active process with the ultimate goal being that the child develops self-efficacy and a life-long love of learning.
We know that many of the children we treat with communication impairments will face greater challenges in life. Developing the belief that they can overcome these challenges through effort is important.
I am excited to again exchange ideas with Jeffrey Stepen who does meticulous research and asks meaningful questions. In our previous talk "Can you /skr/ape it to me please?" we discussed the importance of selecting the most complex treatment targets for optimal results.
Four Video Course Series at SpeechPathology.com to Treat Preschoolers with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) through Movement
You can make a difference. Movement intervention can have the greatest impact at preschool age when plasticity in the brain is at an optimal level through meaningful, engaging, task-oriented practice. Research indicates that you do not have to be a formally trained movement therapist to develop foundational movement skills for children with ASD.
Join Kelly for four web seminars on SpeechPathology.com. Clear evidence-based strategies to incorporate movement activities when treating preschoolers with ASD will be illustrated.
Interactive digital clips will be shown so you can confidently implement evidence-based stategies into your practice. These seminars will be available to you at speechpathology.com in their course library soon.
