LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF 

I'm Alonna Bondar

I am a PROMPT certified and DTTC trained, pediatric speech language pathologist with 25 years of experience. I specialize in apraxia and other speech sound disorders. I enjoy working with children with various diagnoses, especially those with down syndrome and autism.

Early on in my career as speech language pathologist, there were some children that were not making adequate progress utilizing a language based therapy approach. I began researching other treatment methods and realized that childhood apraxia of speech was the underlying issue.  Therefore, these children needed a motor based speech approach. 

Over the years I have worked with countless clients with CAS and trained dozens of SLPs. It became apparent that it was difficult for therapists to find a course that is easy to understand, engaging, and fully prepares them to work with CAS clients.

I am passionate about CAS education and my goal is to make the information around CAS easy to understand and implement, so you can start working with CAS clients immediately. 

"The title of this course 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."

-Suzanne Aldrich, SLP @playingspeech

 

 

 "I am an Early Intervention speech pathologist who has returned to work after raising my 5 children for many years. Your course was and will continue to be extremely helpful and valuable to me. You have a gift for explaining things in a thorough yet easy, engaging manner. I enjoyed the course and will return to it frequently"

 

-Jennifer Dennean SLP 

"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.!!"
