The Speech Therapy for Apraxia app is a fun, user-friendly app to practice basic speech sound (phoneme) production and motor planning for speech. It is a perfect tool for young children with articulation problems and for children with apraxia/dyspraxia. Adults with apraxia can use the application as well. This app is primarily for improving motor planning for speech and can be used by parents for practice at home or by a speech pathologist as part of a formal speech therapy program.
“It was important to us to develop an app that parents can use at home for speech practice with their children but that is also an effective tool for therapists,”
The National Association for Child Development is a unique organization with a unique approach to brain growth and development. Founded in 1979 by Bob Doman, NACD has helped parents enhance the development and function of their children for over 30 years. In its work with tens of thousands of clients, NACD has developed an approach to human development, the achievement of human potential, and the remediation of developmental, educational, and neurological problems that is based upon the gestalt of the individual. The efficacy of NACD's Targeted Developmental Intervention has been demonstrated with individuals from infant to geriatric, whose function has ranged from comatose to gifted. It is from this background and experience that the NACD team of neurodevelopmentalists and therapists, including speech/language pathologists, has created the NACD Home Speech Therapist line of speech apps.
