Overall Treatment Approach:
   I use play-based methods in therapy for younger children and add in table top/more structured tasks as the child progresses in ability and maturity. I primarily use the PROMPT approach to analyze CAS. I am mindful of the purpose of speech—to communicate one’s thoughts and to build relationships with others. Therefore, I consider a child’s other needs (play, social, emotional, sensory, etc.) when coming up with a treatment plan. I utilize augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) strategies to support the development of language while we work on improving speech function, if indicated.

Percent of CAS cases: 40-50%

Parent Involvement:
   Parent education and training is a part of the therapeutic process. Parents are welcome to stay in sessions and I share strategies that have helped in session to practice outside of therapy. I encourage questions and am available via email and phone.

Community Involvement:
   I am a member of various Facebook groups related to apraxia and welcome discussions with other professionals who specialize in apraxia. I look out for ongoing educational opportunities to keep myself up to date with information related to apraxia.
