A proven method for teaching young children how to produce and combine the oral motor movements necessary to speak functionally, and intelligibly
The Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment Kit – Basic Level is a systematic treatment program that trains children to simplify word pronunciation patterns, making it easier for them to communicate. Utilization of these kits also allow the clinician to introduce more complex phoneme patterns as the child's ability improves, thus maintaining the child's ability to speak at his of her maximum level.
The Kaufman Speech Praxis Treatment Kit picture stimuli are appropriate to use with children ages 2-6 and can be used with anyone who is having difficulty with articulatory skills in general, with the exception of children with oral-motor weakness or dysarthria. Both kits explain in a systematic way how to simplify verbal expression making it easier for children to communicate. Utilization of these kits also allows the clinician to introduce more complex phoneme patterns as the child's ability improves, thus keeping the child's ability to speak at his or her maximum level.
The Basic Level kit contains a complete manual and 200 pictures of nouns and verbs ordered from simple to complex at the basic level, only including consonants /p,b,m,t,d,n, h/.
