Toddler, Spanish, and Apraxia Oh My? A How-To for SLPs
Did you know that nearly half (48%) of children in early intervention have culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds? We’re all for research-based intervention, but when the majority of apraxia research is focused on structured, clinical, school-age, English-speaking children, copy-paste to your day may not apply. Where does one even begin to adapt? This session reviews how centering families and honoring their home language leads to provision of balanced, meaningful and efficacious intervention. Spanish apraxia intervention will be highlighted, demonstrating assessment measures, target selection, and available resources. Be ready for videos, case studies, and practical strategies that you can use in your next session.
