The VML (Verbal Motor Learning) method is used for treating Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS). It was developed by Dr. Elad Vashdi from Israel over the last 18 years and has being practiced and learned in Israel and Australia. The VML method uses manual techniques and motor learning principles in order to teach the child how to pronounce consonants, vowels, syllables and words. It also gives solutions to pre-verbal stages such as: oral-motor control, oral sensory condition, and breathing control.
The VML method treats the motor aspect of speech while using a multi-dimensional perspective and regarding all aspects of development.
The VML is a unique tool in the speech treatment field due to the amount of techniques involved in the method, well organized structure, multi-dimensional approach, cross-disciplinary knowledge, 19 years of experience and evidence of results based on many years of treatment. Over 20 VML trainings where delivered in Hebrew and English.
The VML is research based method. Currently we perform a wide range of research protocols, targeting questions regarding CAS. Two articles were published so far in the professional literature and many more are in editing and research procedures. The VML was presented in international conferences and workshops around the world.
Dates: Online Stage 1 meeting start in June 2017. 3 days VML training commences on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of July 2017.
