Are you a parent looking for more information on childhood apraxia of speech? Are you scared and confused by what you’re finding on the internet? ?
Then I’d like to introduce you to a DVD that’s made especially for parents to help you understand this complex diagnosis.
It’s called Teach Me To Talk with Apraxia and Phonological Disorders, and it was developed by pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, author of the website teachmetotalk.com.
In the last few years, Laura’s best-selling DVDs Teach Me To Talk and Teach Me To Listen and Obey have helped thousands of families in the United States and around the world understand expressive and receptive language delays. Now she’s using her parent-friendly, easy-to-understand approach to explain speech disorders.
Watch Laura as she not only explains the characteristics of apraxia but shows you many, many examples of toddlers and young preschoolers who exhibit verbal motor planning difficulties. You’ll learn exactly how speech-language pathologists distinguish apraxia from other speech and language delays such as phonological disorders.
You’ll SEE demonstrations and explanations of the latest techniques experts recommend to help non-verbal toddlers first learn to imitate sounds and then begin to use words, phrases, and sentences.
If you’re having difficulty understanding what your young child is saying to you, this 3 hour DVD set will teach you step-by-step techniques to help your child learn to use speech you can understand.
More importantly, this DVD goes well beyond the diagnosis phase and explains all of the therapy techniques recommended by experts in the field. This DVD isn’t just a videotaped conference with a few clips of speech therapy.
In this comprehensive 3 hour, 2 DVD set, you’ll see dozens of real-life therapy sessions so that you can learn to understand and use these techniques at home with your young child diagnosed with apraxia. You’ll hear Laura explain the techniques and then see multiple demonstrations of each strategy with different children so that you can not only understand exactly what to do but can be confident in implementing the same successful strategies with your own young child.
This DVD covers every important phase of speech-language development in young children. You’ll see techniques to use with toddlers who are non-verbal. Then you’ll watch children progress and find strategies to help them learn to use single words. Children with apraxia and phonological disorders also have difficulty using speech sounds correct in words. They leave off or substitute consonant, and even, vowel sounds. You’ll learn several ways to help them learn new sounds. You’ll also see strategies to help children learn to make the leap from single words to phrases, and then finally, move on to using sentences.
If your child struggles to be understood and has been diagnosed with apraxia or phonological disorder, this DVD will clearly outline steps that you, as a parent, can use at home to help supplement the speech therapy your child is receiving. Children with parents who are involved in their child’s therapy have much better outcomes than children whose parents don’t participate. If you’ve been left wondering exactly HOW to work with your child with apraxia at home between speech therapy sessions, this DVD will teach you.
Additionally, in each section, Laura shares her best therapy resources so that you can locate and use the best treatment materials recommended for children with apraxia of speech. No more searching on the internet or pouring over catalogs to decide what will be appropriate and useful for your child as you work at home. You’ll receive many quality references for reputable and reliable information, all based on cutting-edge research and best practices in treating young children with apraxia and phonological disorders.
If you’re a pediatric speech-language pathologist or another early interventionist working with young children with speech disorders, this must-have resource will become a favorite resource in your library of treatment materials as you share information with families, train students, or offer clinical supervision to CFYs. SLPs love Laura’s down-to-earth and practical advice which will help you take your intervention from theory “to the floor.”

“I wanted to thank you for the new Phonological/Apraxia DVDs!!! As usual, you have put together a super video, chock-full of terrific ideas for parents! I also showed a bit of that one, as well as the other ones at our recent seminars….The response from the SLPs in the audience is universally great, and they all comment on how much something like this is so needed. You’ve done all the work for them, so what a treat to have these available to loan the parents on our caseloads! –Patti Hamaguchi, M.A., CCC-SLP
“I just love your playful manner with the kids and the way you break down the suggested strategies and show how you implement them with actual children. Everyone also comments on how they love the fact that you show real kids who don’t always cooperate, and how you handle it. So fabulous!! Thanks again.” Diane Moss, SLP
“This is an excellent training DVD for parents of late talkers. The strategies that Laura teaches are the same ones she used when working with my son, who has apraxia of speech. My son made incredible progress working with Laura. These strategies are very effective and easy to apply to a variety of speech and language disorders. I wish all speech therapists possessed this level of knowledge and skill. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I would recommend this DVD to my parents of late talkers and especially those diagnosed with apraxia. As a Mom of a late talker, I would recommend this DVD to all speech therapists working with children.” –Laurie Felty, Speech-Language Pathologist
