Description

The Kaufman Cards are ideal for building motor-speech coordination for children with apraxia of speech.

The Kaufman apraxia kits employ a systematic treatment approach that controls the level of motor-speech difficulty by simplifying word pronunciation patterns. Each Kaufman speech card displays a series of “successive approximations” of the target word based on least physiological effort. The Kaufman apraxia “word shell” approach is highly effective for quickly building motor-speech coordination and allows children with apraxia to begin progressing immediately from a simple core vocabulary toward becoming effective vocal/verbal communicators.

The Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment Kit 1 (basic level) contains 225 visual referent speech cards targeting the pivot syllable shapes that children with apraxia of speech need to master to become effective vocal/verbal communicators. The accompanying 52-page manual explains the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP) methods and how to get children started on the road to combining consonants and vowels to form words.

Children who are having difficulty with the production, synthesis, and/or sequencing of words with /k, g, f, s, sh/ and blends /s, r, l/. (Visual referents most appropriate for children ages 2-6.)

Each card breaks down the target word into a series of successive word approximations based on least physiological effort. These “word shells” provide a verbal avenue by which children communicate at their own skill level with success!

The Manual Contains:

  • Complete Evaluation Hierarchy
  • Complete Treatment Hierarchy
  • Cueing Techniques
  • IEP Goal-Writing Examples
