Rockville, Maryland 20854
Overall Treatment Approach:
Our therapy focuses on maximum repetition and multi-sensory input for words and phrases selected for their increasingly difficult motor patterns and personal salience for the child. Our therapy is play oriented and child directed
Percent of CAS cases: 25
Parents are a vital part of our therapeutic approach. When possible we have parents participate in some or all of each session. Specific time at the end of each session is set aside for questions and discussion.
These are not sound errors. It is a matter of movement and hitting the target. Speech requires very precise movements by many muscle groups.These movements have to change whenever one variable in the process is different. I sometimes use the analogy of an archer shooting from the back of a galloping hore at a moving target.
I am an active supporter of children with CAS. I strive to keep abreast of the latest research and intervention methodology and participate in and support local events.
