Describe treatment approach used: I use the principles of motor learning. I recommend frequent shorter sessions when possible. I use a variety of multi-sensory tools. During therapy I use tactile cuing, visual cues, and auditory cues. This varies on the needs of the child. I also alter cueing depending on the child's mastery level for their targets. I use a combination of random and blocked practice in therapy sessions.



Describe parent/caregiver involvement: For my private clients, I have a rule that parents have to attend therapy. Parents are asked to get a notebook to take notes during the session. I set aside time after therapy has been completed to discuss therapy and home "practice".
