Kaufman Speech Praxis Kit 2


Advanced Kaufman Cards to refine speech intelligibility and build higher-level motor-speech coordination



Once a child has mastered the sounds in Kaufman Kit 1 (p, b, m, t, d, n, h), the Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment Kit 2 works to refine intelligibility for children with apraxia of speech (CAS). These advanced-level Kaufman Cards use familiar 2 & 3 syllable words to target more complicated motor-speech movements and synthesis into initial and final word positions. Kaufman Kit 2 contains 285 visual referent cards and employs the same “word shell” simplification approach found in the popular Kaufman Kit 1. The accompanying 52-page manual explains the Kaufman Speech to Language Protocol (K-SLP) methods and how to quickly and effectively utilize this approach.

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
  • General Treatment Considerations

KSPT Kit 2 Highlights:

  • Utilizes complex consonant sounds /k, g, f, s, sh/ and blends /s, r, l/ to address more complicated motor-speech movements and synthesis into initial and final word positions.
  • Refines articulation accuracy and general speech intelligibility.
  • Cards can be combined to develop sentences for more clarity practice.
  • Durable, brightly illustrated cards.
  • 285 engaging pictures (5″x7″) with color illustration on front and phonemic approximations (word shells) on the reverse side to refine intelligibility and build higher level motor-speech coordination.
  • Tip-alveolar to back-velar and back-velar to tip-alveolar words.
  • Pivot syllable words: “ter”, “low”, “ber”, “ing”.
  • Familiar 2 & 3 syllable words.
