The one-day course is suitable for speech and language therapists who want to update their knowledge of developmental verbal dyspraxia/childhood apraxia of speech and to learn how to use the latest edition of the Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme (NDP3®) in their practice effectively. The optional second day will offer a deeper look at NDP3® with a focus on the “how to”: assess, plan treatment, implement therapy and manage cases. Participants will be able to carry out practical exercises in supported workshop sessions and to have the opportunity to problem solve case management issues and to raise clinical queries.
