The Nuts and Bolts of Apraxia Therapy

Establishing an appropriate treatment plan based on the principles of motor learning is essential when treating childhood apraxia speech (CAS). For minimally verbal children with suspected CAS, the principles of motor learning should still guide the treatment approach. This course will outline goal writing, target selection, therapy strategies and activities, use of multisensory cueing, and carryover techniques for speech-language pathologists working with toddlers, preschoolers, and early school-aged children who have CAS or suspected CAS.

Escape Adulthood

Escape Adulthood is the cure for the common life. It's not about escaping responsibility. It's about breaking free from the vile clutches of Adultitis and rediscovering the secrets of childhood that can lead to a life filled with passion, wonder, and joy.

#Notarule: The Art of Winning at Life by Breaking Rules That Don't Exist

The world is moving faster that ever and the only constant is change. What worked yesterday probably won't work tomorrow, and we're constantly asked to do more with less. In order to survive - and thrive - in this environment we need to see the world with new eyes and identify the old ways of thinking that are holding us back. In this lighthearted but hard-hitting program, Jason works with participants to uncover and annihilate these so-called rules that don't exist. He'll reveal some surprising principals that provide a powerful advantage, foster breakthrough levels of innovation, and accomplish what was once thought impossible. By the end, the audience will be armed with tools for getting better at identifying rules that don't exist, and tactics for breaking them with confidence.
