THE KAUFMAN SPEECH PRAXIS TREATMENT KIT 1 For Parents, as well as Speech, Educational or Medical Professionals - Click on image to see a bigger picture.Are you ready for the most effective picture collection and treatment manual for children with developmental Apraxia of Speech? This vibrant, exciting picture  library has successive word approximations written on the back of each item so  that "late talker" children can learn to speak!!
 
 Children with apraxia of speech are not capable of initiating sound sequences necessary to produce normal speech. This occurs because of a breakdown in the ability to coordinate the oral-motor movements necessary to produce and combine phonemes to form words, even though there is no evidence of oral paresis or paralysis. Without guidance these children often stop attempting to speak or verbalize patterns at rudimentary levels below that of which they are capable.   This can delay progress and can cause unnecessary frustration for the child, parents and educators.
 
 This treatment method explains in a systematic way how to simplify word pronunciation patterns making it easier for children to communicate. Phonological processes are utilized and explained as a systematic method of enabling the user to develop verbal stimuli (successive approximations toward target words) that match the child's current ability to initiate phonemes. As the child's ability to produce more complex phoneme patterns improves more appropriate successive approximation patterns can be introduced keeping the child's ability to speak at their maximum level.
 
 This unique material (manual and 200 plus stimulus picture cards) help the clinician determine why a word is difficult for a child to produce and how to
 change the stimulus to meet the motoric needs of the child. For example, the voiceless phoneme in the word "pony" may need to be voiced (bou-ni); or the
 medial consonant may need to be more "gross" or visible (dentilize the n) or may need to be deleted (po-i); or the final vowel may need to be neutralized (po-ne).  These picture stimuli were specifically designed for individuals with apraxia of speech. They are also appropriate for any individual exhibiting articulatory and/or phonological impairments.
 
 If the child cannot produce all of the phonemes in simple bisyllabics (C1 V1 C2 V2) the user is able to choose a variety of appropriate stimulus material from
 this section of the treatment kit. Other treatment categories include:
 
 VC

THE KAUFMAN SPEECH PRAXIS TREATMENT KIT 2 For Parents, as well as Speech, Educational or Medical Professionals - Click on image to see a bigger picture.Kit II is the more complex treatment kit with even more pictures to include all other complex consonants in different combinations creating nouns and verbs. These serve as a way to move into more refinement and integration skills. This treatment material can be used by speech pathologists as well as parents. Kit II is for the child who is having most difficulties with complex consonants, in terms of producing and/or combining them to form words, phrases, and sentences. The consonants that are emphasized in Kit II are:


 / k / final

 / k / initial

 / s / final

 / s / initial

 / g / initial

 CfVCb

 CbVCf

 / l / initial

 / l / blends

 / f / final

 / f / initial

 / s / blends

 / r / blends

 /S/ final

 /S/ initial

 "low" pivot syllable

 "ter" pivot syllable

 "ber" pivot syllable

 "ing" or "een" pivot syllable

 Familiar complex bisyllabics

 Familiar complex polysyllabics


Kit II is a logical step for children who are doing well with Kit I. It is for the purpose of refining and further integrating motor-speech coordination. The Kit pictures are for the purpose of obtaining best word approximations toward target words. The child will do best when able to work at the level of "natural" play activities, once the speech and language pathologist or parent understands how to assist them when whole words are too difficult
