Overall Treatment Approach:
   Using a multi-modality approach and varied treatment strategies, our therapy is tailored to the individual child's needs and interests. It is always one-on-one and designed to treat other speech or language problems that may occur with Apraxia. Treatment typically includes speech sound imitation skills, developing speech/oral-motor movement patterns and sequences, increasing length and complexity of syllable patterns, and teaching appropriate prosody for longer utterances. Augmentative communication systems are implemented when needed. Treatment may also address word finding and language organization issues.

Percent of CAS cases: 25

Parent Involvement:
   Parents are allowed and encouraged to observe the therapy session if they so choose. Each therapy visit is reviewed with the parent or caregiver and a short homework assignment is assigned for daily practice. Assignments could be a new syllable sequence, movement gesture or a few new words to be reinforced at home for a few minutes each day.

Community Involvement:
   I have sponsored some of my patients with CAS in Apraxia Kids Apraxia Walks. I have also helped a few of my patients gain access to iPads through Apraxia Kids iPads for Apraxia Programs.
