Apraxia Kids: What are the top 3 things you learned from this training experience?
Shauna: 1) I learned about the Principles of Motor Learning, which I now apply actively in my interventions.  2) I learned about the underlying causes and the resulting characteristics of CAS, which I can apply to identifying children with CAS in my practice.  3) I learned to be a critical thinker and to apply evidence-based information in my work with the clients.

Apraxia Kids: How did the boot camp experience change or expand your network of colleagues/friends?
Shauna: I loved the opportunity to attend boot camp but unfortunately wasn’t able to attend in person due to the pandemic. I did connect with my group and we did form a Facebook group between the 4 of us, but we use it only minimally. I was so looking forward to meeting everyone face to face so I was disappointed but still happy that I was able to have the boot camp experience. I loved the opportunity to participate in the journal club leading up to the boot camp. Thank you for giving that to us!

Apraxia Kids: How have you implemented the knowledge you gained at boot camp?
Shauna: I began applying my knowledge immediately with the children who I’m working with.  Specifically the PML, and all of the important ways to identify the characteristics of CAS. I began to do this as I learned more in the journal clubs, but then actively following boot camp in August. I apply the knowledge every session with all of my CAS kids.

Apraxia Kids: What is an example of how you have been able to (or plan to) use your expertise as a local resource/support for other professionals and/or families since attending the intensive training?
Shauna:  I have just graduated (yay!) but I plan to continue to work with my colleagues and consult with them regarding their CAS children. I plan to get more involved with my families locally to help with advocacy.

Apraxia Kids: What would you say to someone considering applying to boot camp next round?
Shauna: Yes, do it! It’s intense and stimulating and lots of work but worth it! It will improve all of your intervention for all types of children, but your intervention for motor planning/programming disorders will be what the children in your practice need! Access to these wonderful academics and researchers who teach the program is an amazing part of this experience!
