CPD: Information for Potential Hosts and Participants


Known for www.speech-language-therapy.com and her interest in Children’s Speech Sound Disorders, Dr Caroline Bowen practiced in Australia as a clinical speech-language pathologist for over 40 years, and for the 10 years from 2005 to 2014 travelled worldwide to present CPD events to SLPs/SLTs. Using her 70th birthday in December 2014 as a sign to slow down and reduce her workload, she now offers a selection of just 5 CPD offerings, which she will consider presenting anywhere in the world. She has on-going appointments as an Honorary Associate in Linguistics at Macquarie University in Australia and as an Honorary Research Fellow in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.


CPD Events 2017


In considering hosting, please choose events from the 2015-2017 list of five below, and not from the events that were available in 2014. The 2014 CPD offerings remain on this page for two reasons. First, 'for the record', and secondly for purposes of comparison, so that hosts and participants do not inadvertently sign up for events that are similar to ones they have already hosted or attended.

Potential hosts are invited to request an 'information for potential hosts' document that contains details such as speaker fees, AV requirements and travel and accommodation costs, and/or to send expressions of interest. There is a contact form here >>>

CPD Events: 2015 - 2017


(1) SSD101: Introduction to Speech Sound Disorders in Children (2015-2017)


Topic ID: 2015_01bowen
Outline and Objectives

ABOUT THIS 1-DAY, 2-DAY or 3-DAY EVENT or SHORT COURSE, new in 2015 and updated for 2016-2017

'SSD101: Introduction to Speech Sound Disorders in Children' (2015_01bowen) can be run as a 1-day or 2-day or 3-day event, or as a short course.

Bowen (2015) is a book that covers all aspects of Children’s Speech Sound Disorders (SSD) from ‘the basics’ to the non-so-basic. This introductory CPD event focuses primarily on ‘the basics’ with reference to the book. It is designed for experienced and novice SLPs/SLTs and SLP/SLT Students seeking an uncomplicated overview of the classification, assessment, differential diagnosis, treatment target selection, and intervention for articulation and phonological disorders and childhood apraxia of speech (developmental verbal dyspraxia). It is also suitable as a refresher for SLPs/SLTs re-entering the profession, those making the switch from ‘adult’ to ‘child’ work, and those who feel rusty in relation to the connections between theory, evidence and practice.

Assuming little prior knowledge of the peer-reviewed literature on phonological principles, complexity principles, principles of motor learning, and key developments in the last 10 to 15 years in child speech assessment and intervention, it is aptly dubbed SSD101.

(2) The Assessment and Treatment of Children with Phonological Impairment (2015-2017)


Topic ID: 2015_02bowen
Outline and Objectives

ABOUT THIS 1-DAY EVENT, new in 2015, and updated for 2016-2017

'The Assessment and Treatment of Children with Phonological Impairment' (2015_02bowen) is a 1-day CPD offering. It is designed for experienced through to novice Speech-Language Pathologists / Speech and Language Therapists, and SLP/SLT Students. It is also suitable as a refresher for SLPs/SLTs re-entering the profession, those making the switch from ‘adult’ to ‘child’ work, and those who feel rusty in relation to the connections between phonological theory, evidence and practice.

The range of evidence-based and/or theoretically sound intervention approaches SLPs/SLTs employ to work with children with SSD is extensive. They include: Auditory Input Therapy / Naturalistic Intervention, Core Vocabulary Therapy, the Cycles Phonological Patterns Approach, Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC), Imagery Therapy, Integral Stimulation, Metaphon, Parents and Children Together (PACT), Perceptually based intervention, Phoneme Awareness Intervention, Phonemic Intervention including four minimal pair approaches, Phonetic Intervention / Articulation Therapy, Psycholinguistic Intervention, Rapid Syllable Transition Training (ReST), Stimulability Therapy, The Multisensory Approach, The Nuffield Centre Dyspraxia Programme, and Vowel Remediation.

These intervention approaches are described in detail in Bowen (2015). There are too many to cover in detail in one, or even two days, so Dr Bowen will work with hosts to choose their preferred interventions to meet the learning needs of participants, along with the assessment procedures and target selection strategies that are congruent with the chosen intervention approaches.

NOTE RE INTERVENTIONS FOR CAS/DVD
Interventions for Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) / Developmental Verbal Dyspraxia (DVD) are not included in this 1-day event on children with phonological impairment. The interventions for CAS/DVD are: Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC), Rapid Syllable Transition Training (ReST), The Multisensory Approach and The Nuffield Centre Dyspraxia Programme. They are covered in 2015_03bowen, and can also be included in 2015_05bowen if requested by hosts.

(3) The Assessment and Treatment of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (2015-2017)


Topic ID: 2015_03bowen
Outline and Objectives

ABOUT THIS 1-DAY or 2-DAY EVENT, updated for 2016-2017

'The Assessment and Treatment of Childhood Apraxia of Speech' (2015_03bowen) is an updated and expanded version of CPD1D-03 (see below), which was presented 17 times nationally in Australia and internationally, between 2012 and 2014. This new version can be run as a 1-day event, or as a more interactive, in-depth, slower-paced 2-day event. The focus of the day, or days, is Childhood Apraxia of Speech (called Developmental Verbal Dyspraxia in the UK and defined somewhat differently from CAS), covering Classification, Assessment, Treatment Principles, Target Selection, Treatment Approaches, and practical intervention techniques and strategies.

This CPD offering has been designed with experienced through to novice clinical Speech-Language Pathologists/Speech and Language Therapists, SLP/SLT Clinical Educators and Instructors, and SLP/SLT Students in mind.
