Apraxia of Speech vs
Phonological Processing
Disorders in Children
and Adults

PRESENTED BY:        Martha S. Burns, PhD
COST :   $398 US        includes an extensive course syllabus, continental breakfast,
                        refreshment breaks and Certificate of Attendance
REGISTRATION DEADLINE:          October 7, 2008

The course is designed to update the practicing clinician on the new
treatment approaches designed for children and adults with motor speech
disorders and those speech disorders often confused with motor speech
disorders. Among the areas addressed will be the neurological foundations
of motor speech and phonology, developmental neurogenics, differential
diagnosis and treatment approaches. The course will include discussion of
controversies surrounding the use of oral motor, phonological (linguistic),
technological, and multimodality approaches to evidence-based treatment.
By the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:
• assess children and adults differentially for motor speech disorders vs
  phonological (paraphasic) processing disorders;
• design appropriate evidence-based treatment plans for motor speech and
  phonological processing disorders;
• explain the controversies surrounding these diagnoses and analyze new
  intervention approaches, evidence-based efficacy and applicability in a
  clinical practice.

    WHO WILL BENEFIT – Speech/Language Patholgists,
    Occupational Therapists, and other clinicians who are working with
    apraxia and related motor speech disorders.
