What People are Saying

Laura R. Parent 

"Alonna has a talent for explaining things so well, that even a parent can understand.   I felt like I had a much better understanding of CAS.  I could also help my daughter at home and further understand what and why my daughters speech therapist was doing in a session.  I received many great toy/game ideas to play with my daughter and help her with speech. Overall I highly recommend this course to any parent who wants to learn more about CAS and would like to  give added support to their child at home.!!"

  
Suzanne Aldrich, SLP @playingspeech

I just finished taking this course,Treatment of Childhood Apraxia of Speech: A Practical Guide, and the title could not be more appropriate. Alonna has done a fantastic job of walking you through everything you need to know to ACTUALLY work with children who have CAS. She covers all aspects of CAS intervention - from assessment and identification to treatment and carryover! I have never taken such a comprehensive course on apraxia - and I have taken a lot of courses! I really love how she included SO MANY videos of actual therapy, so you can see what CAS therapy looks like. I can not recommend this course enough for clinicians or parents who want to deepen their knowledge of CAS!

Toys and Tools in Apraxia is a treasure trove of ideas for incorporating speech sound work into an array of toys, books and digital resources. A fabulous resource-run-through for new clinicians, with fresh ideas for experienced SLPs as well, Alonna’s course is clearly presented, the modules are thoughtfully sequenced and the suggestions immediately actionable. The course features many videos showing the toys and tools in actual therapy. Thoughtful target selection and lots of repetition are key ingredients in therapy for speech sound disorders in general, and apraxia therapy in particular. Toys and Tools in Apraxia and the power word document that accompanies it are helpful and practical guides for clinicians wishing to bring these ingredients to life.
