The Source for Apraxia Therapy–Second Edition provides a wealth of newly-revised stimuli for the treatment of acquired apraxia of speech. Use it to provide graduated exercises to help your clients regain as much of their communication ability as possible, regardless of the severity of their apraxia.
Choose from monosyllabic to paragraph-length material for retraining the articulatory, phonatory and resonatory systems using visual, auditory and kinesthetic planning, execution and feedback systems. This thorough revision features all-inclusive target areas for phonemes, connected discourse, fluency and paralinguistics; three different representational systems for modeling, planning, execution, self-identification and remediation; and ample stimulus items for practice.

The stimuli are arranged as:

Section 1: Phonemic Groups includes bilabials, labio-dentals, lingua-dentals, lingua-alveolars, glottals, lingua-velars, lingua-palatals, blends, and vowels.

Section 2: Articulation/Fluency/Phrasing includes multisyllabic words, conversational sentences, paragraphs, similar word pairs, heteronyms, and more.

Section 3: Paralinguistic Drill includes exercises to vary pitch, emphasize target words, and convey emotions.

The exercises focus on the phoneme in the initial position. The medial and final positions are addressed through coarticulation exercises. The exercises are arranged for three modes of presentation:

  • clinician reading, client imitating
  • client reading
  • client looking at word, clinician modeling, client imitating

The exercises can be used with clients who have:

  • apraxia
  • dysarthria
  • dysfluency
  • pronunciation difficulties as in English language learners
  • articulation difficulties due to a hearing impairment
