Describe treatment approach used: Holistic, eclectic, multi-sensory, child-centered, evidence-based. Using a "power word" approach with highly motivating targets chosen with caregiver input and working initially on mass practice using varying levels of cueing (simultaneous/in unison, visual, tactile, gestural, motor) as needed for mass practice of correct productions. Moving towards perfect practice and LOTS of it. When using Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC), making sure to constantly move between varying levels of cueing and fade cueing towards independent and correct production of targets. Use of concrete feedback about productions and results with variation. Practice in varying settings and contexts of learned targets and moving towards new word targets to combine with already learned words to begin to increase expressive language skills, grammar. Data tracking to be cumulative, increasing number of trials each time. I use PROMPT as needed and then fade.

Describe parent/caregiver involvement: Parents help determine target words; they participate in therapy (as appropriate); they do practice sessions at home and send me videos so I can give them feedback; we communicate verbally and via email on a consistent basis.
