             Monday, March 18th Dinner begins at 4:45pm (N-Wing), Program time: 6:00 pm-8:00 pm,  Room L-112

Course Description:

 The importance of interdisciplinary education and collaboration between disciplines is critical to provide our patients with the most beneficial services. This course will examine interdisciplinary education and collaboration in regards to the similarities between Childhood Apraxia of Speech and Developmental Coordination Disorder.  A case study will be reviewed to demonstrate the complexities of working with a child with Childhood Apraxia of Speech who exhibits co-occurring gross motor  difficulties and the negative impact this has on speech/language therapy progress.  Typical gross motor developmental milestones and characteristics of Developmental Coordination Disorder will be discussed to assist Speech/Language Pathologists in making appropriate referrals to Physical Therapy.

Objectives: At the end of this course, participants will:

  1. Identify three symptoms of Childhood Apraxia of Speech.
  2. Identify three characteristics of Developmental Coordination Disorder in regards to gross motor skills.
  3. Will be able to describe how Speech/Language Pathologists and Physical Therapists can assist each other when working with mutual patients who have been diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech and Developmental Coordination Disorder.
