Apraxia Uncovered: The Seven Stages of Phoneme describes how to nurture sound development in children who have great difficulty learning to make sounds and speech. Pam uses a month-by-month developmental framework for treatment and integrates information from articulation, phonology, oral-motor, and infant vocal development into a comprehensive plan of treatment.
This material 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.
Apraxia Uncovered contains:
● 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
This book is also available with 3 CD's as an audio seminar set.
The seven stages of phoneme development include:
1) Preparing - getting the voice ready for speech
2) Speechifying - making utterances sound speech-like
3) Honing - zeroing-in on non-vocalic consonants differentiated by place
4) Oscillating - incorporating reciprocating oral movements
5) Solidifying - establishing basic syllable constructions
6) Advancing - leaping beyond simple syllable constructions
7) Finishing - adding clusters and stridency at all levels of speech.
