RISCA L. SOLOMON (Skybound Therapies), Richele Yeich (Eastern Florida Autism Center/Heart the Chart ), Jamie Schlepp (JMS Therapy Services), Jonathan Amey (AIMS Instruction)
Abstract: Learners with Autism, Down Syndrome, Fragile X, and CP were given daily and weekly sessions of ABA modified Talk Tools based protocols with data collected on the Standard Celeration Chart. This approach was implemented by a collaborative multi-disciplinary team comprised of speech language pathologists, BCBA’s, RBT’s, and parents. Data will be presented on the SCC demonstrating acquisition of component and foundation skills necessary for intelligible and functional speech production. An individualized scope and sequence was established based on learner deficits in KSPT (Kaufman Speech Praxis Test) and baseline oral motor fluency measures. The jaw, lips, and tongue are the primary articulators for speech sound production and will be the primary focus for data display and video clips. This presentation will focus on mastery criteria (aims) and specific protocols implemented that resulted in significant speech improvement.
Target Audience:

Prerequisite skills include knowledge of echoic training, prompting procedures, standard celeration charts.

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to: (1) state an example of a physical prompting method for an oral motor skill; (2) state an example of a prompt fading hierarchy from physical prompting of oral motor skill to spoken sound.
