Progressive Speech Therapy on YouTube

Well, we've done it! We have been looking for ways to get our information out there for more families and professionals. We want to meet you where you are. So, where are you? YouTube, and there aren't many people talking on YouTube about what to do with apraxia.

We've created a channel that brings what we provide here in Dallas, TX to you in nearly every corner of the earth. Some of the many frustrations I hear families and professionals talking about is that they need more training in apraxia. They need more information. They want to connect with other people who are struggling with the same things they are. The problem...they don't have the resources in their area. CASANA has many wonderful solutions to this via social media and their apraxia-kids.org website, and we, at Progressive Speech Therapy, want to add to that by giving you an additional, on-line source for an education and support community on YouTube.

I am a speech-language pathologist and am CASANA Recognized for Advanced Training and Expertise in Childhood Apraxia of Speech. (For those of you who are familiar with CASANA's rigorous bootcamp, this means I'm a bootcamp graduate.) My clinicians are specially trained to meet the specific needs of families with CAS. If you don't have the same resources available to you that we have had, we are sharing our experiences with you on this new channel. We have tips and training videos available for parents and professionals. These include videos regarding diagnosis, treatment, and current research. We would like it to become a place for an exchange of ideas, a discussion of successes and failures, and determining what we want to see in future research.

Check out our channel here, watch some videos, chat in the comments, give your ideas and even critiques, and let us know what else you would like to see on this channel. Don't let it be my channel. Make it ours. Let's build a community. Let's fight apraxia! And let's win!
