BACKGROUND: describe and analyze the effects of the speech-language work in the Kitchen Workshop on the therapeutic processes of a patient with Prader-Willi syndrome. PROCEDURES: the research is a clinical case study on one child, 5-year old, with Prader-Willi Syndrome, with a delay in speech and feeding problems. The child took part during seven months of the therapeutic process in Kitchen Workshop, associated with individual speech therapy. The clinical material was recorded systematically in writing throughout each one of the sessions. RESULTS: the studied case ameliorated his myo-functional oral functioning and language, such as: organizing his chewing ability and gaining autonomy of discourse. Assuming the inseparability between the organ and the psychic, the child, that showed definite organic marks, could benefit from the potential of the Kitchen Workshop. CONCLUSION: the Kitchen Workshops, under the position of a therapeutic speech-language method, showed the relevance of the biopsychic articulation in the treatment of patients whose organic marks determined limits and specifics to acquisition and circulation in the language, as in this case of Prader-Willi Syndrome.
