Overall Treatment Approach:
   I am consistently using Kaufman Praxis Cards, Kaufman workbook, Word Filps, NAES Apraxia Apps, Mini Apraxia Photo Cards and Apraxia Workbooks to target sound patterns. I work with parents to break consistently used words into functional words for getting needs met and pair many of my target cards with home activities as repetition is vital to success for a child with CAS.

Percent of CAS cases: 30

Parent Involvement:
   Parents are welcomed to be an active part of the therapy session and home practice activities are always sent with reinforcers for repetition at home. My parents understand how important repetition of sound combinations is and how this helps build muscle motor memory. Parents also give me a list of frequently used words that their child has difficulty with and we work on functional breakdown for these.

Community Involvement:
   I am on several Facebook Page Groups and participated in the Apraxia Walk. I also attend conferences and follow current information on CAS.
