Session Detail

Evaluation and Treatment of Pediatric Motor Speech Disorders

The public school speech-language pathologist's caseload has varied greatly over the past decade. With more medically and developmentally complex children being served in the public schools, evaluating and treating children with childhood apraxia of speech and dysarthria is becoming more prevalent. This course will provide practical procedures for standardized and informal assessment of motor speech disorders, including dynamic assessment.  In addition, evidence-based treatment of mild to severe motor speech disorders in children ages 3-21 will be provided, including determination of appropriate strategies, cueing techniques, goals and activities to stimulate responses, and general therapy approaches to address the educational need of children.

Important Session Information:

For this session, we welcome Lucinda Dean, speech-language pathologist and senior lecturer/clinical supervisor from University of Texas-Dallas.  Lucinda specializes in neurogenic speech disorders for both children and adults. 

Registered participants will receive the Zoom link prior to the session.

TSHA CEUs are pending for this course.
