Edythe Strand, PhD, CCC-SLP

Dr. Strand is an emeritus professor in the Mayo College of Medicine and former Head of the Division of Speech Pathology, Department of Neurology at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester Minnesota, and internationally recognized for her expertise in childhood apraxia of speech. Dr. Strand’s research has focused on developmental, acquired and progressive apraxia of speech, and issues related to intelligibility and comprehensibility in degenerative dysarthria. She has a long history of clinical experience, including the public schools, private practice, and hospital and clinic settings. Dr. Strand developed The Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) approach for CAS treatment, which was found to be one of two motor-based treatment approaches with sufficient evidence for clinical use (Murray, et. al., 2014). Dr. Strand’s publications include many articles and book chapters related to motor speech disorders. She is the co-author of the books: Management of Speech and Swallowing in Degenerative Disease; Clinical Management of Motor Speech Disorders in Children and Adults; and is co-editor of the book, Clinical Management of Motor Speech Disorders in Children. She is an ASHA fellow and has been awarded Honors of the Association of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

Description of the Online Video

The online video covers the core principles of assessment and treatment including Principles of Motor Learning (PML). The video provides foundational knowledge related to Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), including how CAS differs from other motor speech disorders and more common developmental phonological disorders. Effective methods to differentially diagnose CAS and develop a plan of treatment that follows principles of motor learning is also covered. The presentation includes research to guide evidence-based practice. Treatment for different age groups and different levels of severity of CAS is discussed.

Online Video Objectives

As a result of this video presentation, the participant will be able to:
1. List three principles of motor learning.
2. Describe three treatment considerations when using principles of motor learning.
3. Describe three variables that are important in the application of DTTC in treating children with CAS.
