Workshop Details

The FREE two-day advanced training workshop is designed for speech-language pathologists across various practice settings including schools, medical, home health, early childhood intervention, and private practice who want to gain advanced knowledge about evidence-based assessment and treatment for CAS. Clinicians are challenged to demonstrate effective clinical decision-making skills through discussion, case studies, and small group activities.

What Clinicians are Saying

Cori R.SLP and Advanced Workshop Attendee

Spending time with Dr. Strand is like immersing yourself into a textbook regarding motor speech disorders. Dr. Strand's knowledge is wide span and provided me with the greater depth of information to guide my practice. I am very grateful for the opportunity to learn from such an expert!

Rebekah B.SLP and Advanced Workshop Attendee

DTTC advanced training has provided me with an entirely new way to think about, access and treat CAS. I have recommended it to all my SLP colleagues.

Nicole K.SLP and Advanced Workshop Attendee

The Advanced Workshop has helped me to become more confident in assessing and diagnosing Apraxia in addition to providing family education and ongoing therapy to my clients.

Kathryn D.SLP and Advanced Workshop Attendee

I have found Dr. Strand's course very helpful in my day to day clinical practice with preschool and school aged children. Her emphasis on teaching the various components of motor learning as it relates to speech production was enlightening. I also use the prompting/cueing strategies, and have had a great deal of success! I believe it is because I am now giving the children very specific feedback that enables them to change their production so it matches my model. Without a doubt, the children benefit from this multisensory approach. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend her course. Thank you Dr. Strand and NYU!!!

Nicole P.SLP and Advanced Workshop Attendee

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from Dr. Edythe Strand to provide DTTC to my patients with CAS. Understanding how to target specific movement gestures to improve the overall efficiency of a child's motor speech system has been instrumental in my practice. It has been particularly amazing to see the generalization of production precision and accuracy to untrained movement gestures; a true testament to how effectively this protocol works!! For example, although not directly targeted or trained, I observed the elimination of a patient's voicing errors following 1-2 months of DTTC treatment. Thank you so much!
