Overall Treatment Approach:
   I determine what they can do and build from there. Intensive repetitions of stimulable sounds in different combinations of isolation, and syllable movements, into words and phrases as indicated. I include the parents so I can model how to stimulate the sounds and give the parents some practice activities to do at home. Use of the VisiPitch to provide biofeedback if indicated.

Percent of CAS cases: 20

Parent Involvement:
   I have parents come into the session for the last 10 minutes, so we can model and share what we have accomplished and so that I can convey what I would like for them to do at home, and so the parent can have an opportunity to express areas of concern or need, and how practice is going at home.

Community Involvement:
   I have had probably 15 very severe CAS students that I have worked with over the course of my 31 years of being an SLP. We opened True Potential in 2014, and I find that suddenly we are getting many inquiries about CAS treatment.
