Apraxia of speech can be incredibly frustrating for children because they know what they want to say, but their mouth doesn’t always cooperate. Jacqueline Ahrens, SLPD, CCC-SLP, at Speech Success, holds an advanced certification in the evaluation and treatment of apraxia of speech. She implements an intensive speech therapy program that improves their ability to speak properly and enjoy communicating. Dr. Ahrens often uses PROMPTĀ® speech therapy, a program that engages children’s senses using items like pictures to represent the words they’re learning to articulate. Then she builds on that connection using hand cues that help children learn and remember how to move the structure in their mouth.
