The NDP3 treatment approach is currently one of two interventions with the strongest evidence for use with children with developmental verbal dyspraxia/childhood apraxia of speech. This online course will be presented by UK expert, Dr Pam Williams FRCSLT.

What is this Course?

This online course is accessible as a two or four module option. Those attending for the two modules only option will learn current evidence-based information about developmental verbal dyspraxia/childhood apraxia of speech and the NDP3 assessment procedure and intervention approach, so they can use NDP3 effectively within their clinical practice. Modules three and four build on the first two modules and will offer a deeper look at NDP3 and allow clinicians to practise using NDP3, through a series of supported assessment, treatment planning and goal setting exercises, as well as the opportunity to raise clinical queries and to problem solve case management issues.
