Nuffield Dyspraxia Programme (NDP3®)

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 used by speech and language therapists/speech pathologists.
The approach provides a multi-layered, multi-target treatment approach involving working on several layers at the same time. The approach works from the child’s strengths: what he can already do and builds skills in small achievable steps from this point. To find out more click here.

Course Beetle work in partnership with NCDP Training Ltd to enable appropriately qualified practitioners to access specialist training. It is also possible to purchase subscription access to NDP3® assessment materials in digital format.
