Using VML (verbal motor learning) method techniques in treatment of prosody disorder due to childhood apraxia of speech: A case study (pp. 255-260) $45.00
Authors:  Elad Vashdi
Abstract:
Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) is a motor deficit phenomenon that affects the child’s ability to communicate verbally with his environment and has a wide spectrum of classifications. One of these classifications is a prosody deficit which has a pragmatic manifestation. In this case study we examine the influence of manual VML techniques on prosody. The subject is a 14 years old teenager diagnosed with severe CAS and limb apraxia. The subject was treated for years for prosody with no success. We applied a new manual technique as an experiment for a month involving daily sessions. Results showed reduced volume, differentiation between high and low pitch and improved control over word lengths. This is one step in creating a wide inventory of manual techniques to treat prosody among CAS patients.
