Course Abstract

The focus of this presentation is Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing, a treatment approach for Childhood Apraxia of Speech, as well as other motor speech disorders. Using auditory, visual, and tactile cueing, the method incorporates principles of motor learning into speech practice and feedback and uses a specific hierarchy of temporal delay between stimulus and response (i.e., simultaneous production, immediate repetition, repetition after delay, etc.). The temporal relationship used with children is constantly changed, trial by trial, depending on the child's accuracy, in order to shape the movement, facilitate motor learning, and develop more automaticity. Primary issues for discussion include goals of treatment, making clinical decisions regarding stimuli, organizing practice, cueing, varying temporal relationship, feedback and pacing. Discussion of basic principles of motor learning will be presented, including rationale for their use, how to incorporate them in treatment planning, and specific techniques for their implementation during treatment.
