Overall Treatment Approach:
I utilize the Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) method to the best of my ability incorporating my knowledge of PROMPT, The Kaufman Approach, sign language and other effective cues I have picked up along the way. My goals focus on both speech and language skills. I structure therapy sessions in such a way that I will typically be focusing on one particular goal during an activity but have also incorporated words or phrases/sentences that target additional goals. I use reinforcers or reinforcing activities that are relevant to the goal/goals being targeted so that practice continues to occur even during "fun" activities and there is minimal loss of valuable "work" time. For Example: during a session targeting CVC sequences with alveolar to bilabial movement the reinforcement activity may be a ball ramp where the balls have to be put on "top" and the child must "tap" them with a hammer to put them in action.
Percent of CAS cases: 25
Treatment goals are collaborated on with parents and progress is discussed and reviewed on a weekly basis. Parents are able to observe all sessions through a two way mirror or remain in the therapy room as needed. Therapy techniques and rationale are explained and home practice ideas/activities provided. Parents are encouraged to ask questions, discuss concerns and give ideas of specific words that are relevant to the child's current interests and activities to target during sessions.
I have participated in the Central Ohio Walk for Apraxia the past 2 years and attended the National Conference in a Chicago last year, in addition to focusing on Apraxia courses for my CEUs. Last summer I requested and was awarded a grant from a local foundation to attend a couple Apraxia Kids National conferences and additional Apraxia courses.
