Overall Treatment Approach:
   I individualize my treatment approach for each child to the best of my ability. I traditionally utilize either a) a motor-programming approach that incorporates massed practice of targets to improve the motor plan and help the child learn to independently and spontaneously make sounds and sequences of sounds, b) a behavioral approach such as K-SLP, or c) a linguistic approach such as Cycles by Barbara Hodson. I do use sensory cueing at times, namely gestures and oral placement cues.

Percent of CAS cases: 30

Parent Involvement:
   Parents play an important role in the therapy process. During the initial evaluation we discuss together concerns and goals for the child. During sessions, parents can choose if they prefer to be in the therapy room or in the lobby, but following each session the parent is provided with education that includes a verbal demonstration as well as a handout for home practice and generalization. Parents are provided with short "homework" to be completed for a set amount of time each day to aid the treatment of their child. Communication is consistent throughout the treatment process.

Community Involvement:
   I provide education, insight, assistance, and support for the families I work with on a daily basis.
