Yael Center

The Yael Center is a professional therapeutic organization which focuses on speech therapy and multi-dimensional therapy via two unique methods, the VML and MDT methods accordingly. It is called Yael in honor of one of the first children Dr Vashdi treated at the beginning of his professional way. The idea to choose this type of name to the clinic came from the deep understanding that the knowledge and service are being developed for the children and not the profession. The center has been in existence since 1996.

A new-old insight There is no good diagnostic tool for Apraxia of speech. researchers are trying to find a biological marker for decades , without success. The current diagnosis is based on symptoms which are correct, but covers only part of the CAS spectrum and can attributed to other causes of a speech problem. The main question which should be asked is: what is the probability for the speech problem to be motor planning based. The reliability of the answer is dependent on the logical process of the examiner and examination system. The VML method suggested a logical process based on screening all possible causes for the speech delay and calculating the probability of each possible cause. It was a qualitative process. I am happy to announce that we are working on the quantitative process - an algorithm/machine which will be able to quantify the probability of the CAS for a child with speech deficits. Attached the basic data collection.... reasoning and way of calculation is not for publish.... Currently we are writing the index for the variables and algorithm on several levels. Later we will translate it into a code and application in which you will be able to put the data and get the probability of CAS. A later stage would be comparison research between this tool and others.

Words from a VML trainee who finished all the VML quizzes: At first I was a little frustrated, in the sense that it seemed to me that I was never finishing, I spent whole days, sometimes at night doing lessons. It was difficult for me, during the day I went to the state center, in the afternoon to the individual office and it seemed like a lot of tasks, but I understood that it was for my development, to better understand the working method and I considered it an opportunity ! I put in a lot of work and I started to like it, understand it and deepen it. It was difficult because I used Google translate, but this was also a challenge that I faced! I had many feelings, I went through a lot and it was beautiful! I feel now that I can relax a little and take care of other aspects of my life! Thank you for everything you have created, for your work and for sharing with me many materials and information! I am grateful to you! Best wishes and good luck to those who haven't finished! When they finish they will understand many aspects, both theoretical, practical and emotional! Impressive :)

פעולה אינה מתקיימת ללא גורם מניע , הגורם המניע הוא המוטיבציה לקיום הפעולה. ככל שרמת קושי הפעולה גדול יותר כן המניע הנדרש, או רמת המוטיבציה הנדרשת , גבוהה יותר. מוטיבציה היא מימד הכרחי ומשמעותי ביותר בטיפול בדיבור בשל רמת האתגר הגבוהה מאד. ללא מוטיבציה משמעותית ביותר יהיה קשה מאד לקיים מערכת טיפול איכותית. יכולת המטפל לזהות מקורות מוטיבציה ולנהל אותם ביעילות קשורה באופן ישיר לתוצאות הטיפוליות. בקורס VML נלמד על מקורות מוטיבציה שונים וכיצד ניתן לנהל אותם לאורך מערכת הטיפול בצורה יעילה, על מנת להבטיח שיתוף פעולה מלא ואפקטיבי. בתאריך 1/5/2024 יחל קורס הכשרת הורים לפי שיטת VML הבינלאומית לטיפול באפרקסיה ורבלית. מצורף קישור לפרטים נוספים והרשמה לקורס לפרטים נוספים – 0523638340, center@yaelcenter.com ד"ר אלעד ושדי, מנהל מרכז יעל מצורף סרטון המדגים את לימוד נושא המוטיבציה בקורס VML https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrQ73IkR3Js https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeCl4xdGjHna0CGyawmP2MqYN3LzdAFgkFZ4natRk_OqeOopQ/viewform

The platform insight..... The importance of the platform Once again, we noticed how important the treatment platform is in the evaluation and treatment processes. The treatment platform is the foundation frame of the treatment which enables interaction, motivation, structure, context and the application of the treatment exercises, in a positive and fun way. When using it correctly, the examiner can interact quickly with the child and connect in the way that allows effective examination and even treatment. The therapist has more time to establish platform in the therapy session. We observed attempts to practice which lacked the platform principle and resulted with less success if at all in achieving the treatment goals. Not always do you need to use a platform, however , in most cases , definitely yes. The first question I would ask before engaging with the child would be, what does he/she like? , the answer will come from observation, parents interview and attempts. When you hit a good platform, then the course of the session is fluent with good rhythm. If not, you struggle. Look for good platforms 😊 you will enjoy it too….
